The Horn of Moran

In the six months since Alex's last adventure he's been studying to be a Wizard by corresponding with Whalen Vankin, meeting with him would be preferable, but Whalen is currently on an adventure of his own. He's also been exploring his own dad's Magic Bag and trying to get to know him, even a little bit. One day, he receives a note from Whalen telling him that Silvan Bregnest, the leader of his last adventure is putting together a new group to go on another adventure. Whalen tells Alex that it's up to him, but that he thinks just maybe Alex would like to go on the adventure. Alex jumps at the suggestion, meeting Bregnest as suggested and signing on for a second adventure to find The Horn of Moran, a very important artifact for the known land of Alusia. Along the way Alex will get to see two friends get married, vanquish a bully in a comical way, outwit some goblins and make a host of new friends. All in adventure's name.

I was hoping that this second book was as good as the first and I was not disappointed in any way. I found Alex in this book to be the same steady, honorable, true personality that he was in the first book. In this book Alex, and readers, meet some new friends as well as make better acquaintance with some old friends. I still love the adventures in this book. I was quite surprised with who turned out to be the "bad guy" in this book, I like the way that it shows that we can each decide to be good, or to be "bad" by the choices that we make in our lives. I like how Alex again faces temptation but is able to stay true to his character. This is a great series, so excited to read the 4th one in February!
