Pendragon Book Two: The Lost City of Farr, by D.J. McHale

Another Pendragon series book. In this volume Bobby travels with his uncle Press to a water-world, Cloral. There they meet Spader and contend with Saint Dane (the force of darkness/evil). I think I'm going to give up on this series. Some young readers craving action, science fiction and fantasy will find this series of interest. It is rather predictable series book. These are good for developing reading muscle, but not really great works of literature.

My strongest criticsm of the series is the flatness of the characters and the lack of gray tones. Although evil disguises itself things are pretty much either evil or good.
