Very similar to the first in the series. Good read, though a little slower.

It's with a heavy heart that I write this review. I loved the first book. The review I left on the book is me just gushing about it. The twists and interesting characters. The second book was well...
I actually liked the beginning but the part that lost me was the fact that Constance can suddenly read the future. Not only did it ruin the mood of the book, but it was also just a lazy plot device to keep them from getting caught multiple times. She hears random footsteps. "Oh no! It's some random Ten Man's footstep she knows?!!" WHAT?
Anyways, it was okay. A little hard to get through.

 The members of the Mysterious Society are reunited, but there is no time for celebration. Mr. Benedict and Number Two have gone missing! Personally, I preferred this book to the first one. It takes us on a thrilling adventure, traveling by boat and train, visiting Holland, libraries, and even an island. I would recommend it if you enjoyed the first book, or if you're looking for an exciting story about kids with special talents.

The beginning was very slow, the ending was so fast paced it made it hard to keep up, one of my least favs in the series. But once you re-read it, it’s 20x better.
