Like the first book of the series, this is a fun, exciting read. Amari and the Great Game picks up where Amari and the Night Brothers leaves off. A quick summary of the previous book gets the reader up to speed. Amari is easy to root for because she's smart, persistent, and compassionate -- a strong girl role model with a sensitive side. The magical world is consistent and believable and details about school and family relationships make the ordinary world seem realistic, too.
