1 Review
The much-anticipated sequel to the bestselling The Book of Lies When Marcel defeated the great dragon of war, Mortregis, he thought he'd destroyed the Book of Lies as well. But one fragment remains, and this is what his brother Fergus has taken with him on a journey that is part quest for revenge, part search for his own place in the world. In this much anticipated sequel to the Book of Lies, Fergus hunts down the ruthless Damon, armed with a weapon that will let him challenge the man in mortal combat. One of them will not live to see the story's end. As Marcel and Nicola pursue Fergus, each with their own cares, Nicola will discover the value of the very thing she has been fleeing and risk losing it forever. As for Marcel, the new Master of the Books, is he truly a great sorceror or nothing but a charlatan? Only when the fate of the entire land lies in his hands will he know what his destiny is, and only then may the last fragment of the Book of Lies be destroyed. Ages 10+

I think this book is a wonderful sequal to the book of lies. I hope to see another one like this by him.
