Kiki Strike: The Empress's Tomb

Something odd is happening in Kiki Strike's New York. Strange squirrels are running rampant throughout Manhatten. An old mansion appears to be haunted. And two dangerous secrets are about to be let loose.....Back in this thrilling sequel, The Irregulars (led by the mysterious Kiki Strike) seem to have a knack for finding trouble: whether it's helping kidnapped kids underground, exploring the Shadow City beneath Manhatten's busy streets, or resucitating the ancient mummy of a Chinese Empress, there's mystery, suspense, and adventure lurking on all pages of this book. Readers awaiting the much-wanted sequel to the bestselling "Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City" (by Kirsten Miller) will not be disappointed!

I really loved this book. It's so exciting and entertaining, but to tell you the truth, I was actually disappointed with "The Empress's Tomb". Why? Because it simply lacked the excitement of the first book. I mean, yeah, it WAS exciting, but not as great as the first.

Hello Tessa and Brigitte!
Thanks for your comments. First off, to Tessa:

Well, the first Kiki Strike is a very hard act to follow, so you may find that "The Empress's Tomb" just can't be as good as the first. But, if you were a big fan of the first Kiki Strike, then I encourage you to check out this new one. Happy reading!

Now, to Brigitte:
Thank you for your opinion! Readers like you really make this blog exist. Keep on checking in with books you've read and liked, and more comments!
Your Book Buddy,

Anonymous--I hate to say it, but I honestly do not know. I sure hope so, though! I love Kirsten's writing and don't think I'm done with Kiki yet! (: I think she's only planning on having the 1st novel and the sequel.
