Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

It takes a lot of work to keep the middle volume of a sci-fi trilogy afloat, but author Michael Buckley does his best to raise the action and suspense in this installment of his undersea saga. Lyric and her companions encounter new dangers in their quest to rescue Lyric's missing parents, and they wind up in greater jeopardy than before. Buckley engineers a couple of neat plot twists, but there's sometimes a sense that the narrative is just marking time until Book 3. Still, there's an action-packed showdown at the climax of this volume, and the final pages will definitely leave loyal readers ready for more.
