Typically, the second book in a series really isn't as good as the first. But in the case of The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey, it was a tale equally as good, if not even better than it's predecessor. The action in this story was really great, and it all tied together well. Additionally, I felt as though the story itself really centered around the values of teamwork and friendship, which of course are very beneficial for all of us. To say the least, this was a well-written book, with an excellent plot!
Reunited after a year of moving on and living their own lives, the members of the Mysterious Benedict Society finds themselves to be reunited at last, and ready to take on a whole new task! Little do any of them know, however, that they all will soon be put into grave danger, and in the midst of a very sinister plot. Using their wits and relying on one another, the Mysterious Benedict Society embarks on an international quest (filled with riddles and physically grueling tasks), in order to save those that they love.
