Ever since returning from Dormia, Alfonso has enjoyed sleeping in a bed like a
normal person. No more waking up at the top of a tree or the edge of a cliff. In fact,
no sleepwalking at all. But then, while visiting France on a class trip, Alfonso feels that strange and
familiar pull of sleep. Upon waking, he finds himself in the belly of a ship headed
to Egypt. In his backpack are a few old books and a vial of medicine he stole while
asleep. Something is calling Alfonso back to Dormia. Perhaps it's the Founding Tree? Or
perhaps it's the man he sees in his dreams--the one who looks just like his deceased
father? Whatever it is, Alfonso is powerless to resist.

Storytellers Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski take Alfonso on another fantastical
quest to Dormia--and beyond--to a vast underground world that holds the answer
to a terrifying message: Let me tell you of a dark shadow tree and the world's end.

I found this book by chance, and I picked it up because I thought it might be a good read. This is the second of a trilogy, even though I skipped the first one and jumped right into this one. The authors do a good job of recapping events and main ideas from the first book, though, so I got caught up pretty quickly. Though I didn't know what to expect at first from a series I'd never read before and a book I knew hardly anything about, I have to say that I really enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it to anyone who likes Fantasy books. The story was new and interesting. Both authors do a wonderful job of describing Alfonso's colorful world, and I found most of the characters to be likable and interesting. The climactic ending definitely kept me in suspense!
