Myers’ sequel to Fair Coin ups the ante for fantasy fans everywhere, without letting other elements of the story wither. The romantic tension throughout highlights the maturation of the characters. Unlike many sequels, this one wraps up loose ends in a satisfactory fashion.

Ephraim thought he was through traveling the multiverse. He destroyed the coin, and Zoe (his girlfriend Jena’s analog from another universe) promised to destroy her controller. But then Zoe shows up, desperate. She’s received a distress signal from Nathaniel, and she needs Ephraim’s help to find out what’s wrong. They discover devastating news: The multiverse is slowly destroying itself. Ephraim, Nathaniel and their respective analogs must journey through time and space to save the people, places and universes they love. (PYR, Oct., 340 pp., $16.95, ISBN: 9781616146825, HC, 12 & Up)
