This is a sequel to the book Compass South. You can find the first review here. This book is a direct continuation of the first, following our intrepid heroes Alex and Cleo, who after reuniting with their father are determined to find their mother's long lost treasure. Along the way, they must continue to outrun the pirates following them, and maybe find a way to reunite with their long lost mother they've never met.
The book is about the same as the first. I like how the characters are more fleshed out now, and the chemistry is very good. The art is still quite pretty, and the story beats are well crafted. I did think there were a few too many odd coincidences and small deus ex machina moments, but over all it balances out nicely.
