Plot
(by Goodreads)

“I can’t do magic,” said the boy. “That’s impossible.” He paused. “But I can undo it.”

Sam’s first adventure ended with him grounded and Lily banned from seeing him. So not a complete success. But what bothers Sam more is that he still doesn’t know the scientific reason for what’s going on, and hasn’t been able to help his friend.

His solution? Get a stone like his to take the dark energy surrounding Lily away for good. But how? The nearest area with that type of rock is over 300 miles away.

So when a school camping trip comes up he tries to convince Lily to go, but she argues (understandably) that he should come too. Can Sam overcome his fears to go with her? Will the weird terrors hounding Lily be better or worse away from the city? And can they work together to save the camp, and all their friends, from disaster?

If you can prove that monsters don’t exist, what is there to be scared of?

Teaser


“Um…it says Sunrise, Virginia,” Lily answered.

“In the mountains,” Sam babbled. “The mountains where there’s dolerite. Dolerite. Like in the atlas.” He was looking up at her. “You can find a rock, like mine. We can wire it up in your house. It’ll solve all the problems.”

Lily frowned, piecing together what Sam was telling her.


My Opinion

This book re-introduces you to Sam who is still grounded – and to Lily who is still surrounded by dark energy; and what about the school camping trip?

With “Undoers Two, D.P. Davies has created the second in a series of adventures with an unusual and cute group of kids. It is a very compelling read, inevitably drawing you in as the story proceeds. D.P. Davies paints a clear picture of the main characters’ mindsets – making the readers acquainted with them – while the story evolves. I was drawn very close to Lily and Sam. The main characters are complex and I took to them instantly; the others are of sufficient depth. The story is cleverly elaborated and has a great flow. I had a great time reading “Undoers Two”; looking forward to reading “Undoers Three”.

This is a book for you if you like middle-grade adventure, funny moments, and likeable characters.

Highly recommended.

About the author

When my wife moved to the States to study her MBA I found myself here as an unemployable ‘dependent’, so decided to see if I could turn my lifelong love of writing into something more solid. The inspiration for Undoers came from being the only kid at school whose parents wouldn’t let me believe in Santa Claus, their reasoning being that you always have to say “thank you” to whoever gave you a gift. That didn’t make growing up any less magical or scary, and when we recently moved to Washington, DC – a place magical and scary in its own way – everything fit together. I hope you enjoy Sam and Lily’s adventures there!
