The school you went to might still give you nightmares, but there probably were no homicidal monsters devouring your classmates. If there were, you should write your own book. This was an excellent sequel. Puck remains annoying (that's his job, after all) but he's starting to grow on me. ( )

This sounds like a fun twist on mystery, which middle readers love. I think the 11 year old heroine of the story will connect with young readers, the fast action was a bit much for me, but I am not 11 years. old. Some readers don't like cliffhanger endings, but this does get you to read the next book in the series! ( )

In this volume Sabrina and Daphne finally get enrolled in school. Daphne's teacher is Snow White and her classmates love her. Sabrina's teacher is Mr. Grumpner and she is not doing quite as well as with her fellow classmates. Sabrina is angry all the time, her classmates are always sleepy and there have been murders at the school.

I liked the story but the narrator just wasn't working for me. This story ended on a cliffhanger and I cannot decide whether I want to try listening to it again or whether I should just get a paperback. Some of his voices were good, but his voice for the girls in particular just wasn't working for me. ( )

SABRINA SCRAMBLED THROUGH THE DARKNESS armed with a shovel and using the cold, stone walls as a guide. Each step was a challenge to her balance and senses. She stumbled over jagged rocks and accidentally kicked over an abandoned tool, sending a clanging echo off the tunnel walls. Whatever was waiting for her in the labyrinth knew she was coming now. Unfortunately, she couldn't turn back. Her family was somewhere in the twisting maze and no one else could help them. Sabrina prayed they were all still alive.

The tunnel made a sharp turn, and around the corner Sabrina spotted a distant, flickering light. She quickened her pace, and soon the tunnel opened into an enormous cave, carved out of the bedrock of Ferryport Landing. Torches mounted on the cave walls gave the room a dull light, not strong enough to dissolve the black shadows in every corner.

Sabrina scanned the cave. A few old buckets and a couple of shovels leaned against a crumbling wall. She started to retrace her steps when something hit her squarely in the back. She fell hard on her shoulder, dropping her shovel. Searing pain swam through her veins, followed by a throbbing ache. She could still move her fingers, but Sabrina knew her arm was broken. She screamed, but her cries were drowned out by an odd clicking and hissing sound.

As she crawled to her feet, Sabrina grabbed the shovel and swung it around threateningly, searching the room for her attacker.

"I've come for my family," she shouted into the darkness. Her voice bounced back at her from all sides of the rocky room.

Again, she heard clicking and hissing, followed by a cold, arrogant chuckle. A long, spindly leg struck out from the shadows, narrowly missing Sabrina's head. It slammed against the wall behind the girl, pulverizing stone into dust. Sabrina lifted the heavy shovel and swung wildly at the leg, sinking the sharp edge deep into the monster's flesh. Shrieks of agony echoed through the cavern.

"I'm not going to be easy to kill," Sabrina said, hoping her voice sounded more confident to the monster than it did to her own ears.

"Kill you?" This is a party!" a voice replied. "And you're the guest of honor."


A NOTE: The first sentence is typed the same way it was in the book, even though it should read "...used the cold, stone walls..." instead of "...using the cold, stone walls...."
