Note: This post reviews the second book of the A Tale of Two Castles series. You may like to read the first book in the series, A Tale of Two Castles, before reading this review.

Elodie travels back to her homeland with her master, the dragon Meenore, and her friend, the ogre Count Jonty Um. But they arrive in Lahnt to hear terrible news: the replica of their volcano – which keeps the real volcano from erupting – is missing. The only way to save the mountain is to find out who stole the replica, and return it before time runs out. Elodie, with the help of Meenore and Count Jonty Um, works tirelessly to unravel the mystery that surrounds the missing replica, risking their lives to save the people of Lahnt.

This book has a similar feel to the book before it. At times, it felt slow and was a little difficult to get through – probably because I don’t really gravitate towards mysteries. I still enjoyed it, because it’s almost impossible for me not to enjoy a book by Gail Carson Levine, but I still prefer her other fairytale stories!
