After reading Finding Monsters I was so excited to receive the second book in the series. Unfortunately after reading it and making sure my students knew about it and it was on my shelf for them. I forgot to post a review. I was cleaning out my files on my desktop and found a folder for it. I did what I always do. I checked to make sure I’d posted a review. Why? Because I have come across reviews I’d written a year before and forgot to post. Life gets busy being a teacher, book reviewer and writer. Often things go wrong. Well unfortunately this was one of those things that went wrong. I found I’d not posted a review. So without further ado, here it is extremely late.
Becoming Monsters is the second book in the Guardians of Esurack series. If you haven’t read the first book you will definitely want to read it first. At the end of book one Emily is in the monster’s world. Why? Read book one. Anukhan has stolen Misty’s blue light. Now they must re-enter the human world and travel to Egypt to try and get it back. I thought that the first book was full of emotion and mystery. This book seemed to take it up several notches. You realize that to stop Anukhan it could cost Misty her life. The fact that this author continued such a fantastic story line, and included something for all of those Egyptian myth lovers is a plus. Now Misty is facing an old enemy that is life threatening. Will she ever get a break?
