Overview

Secrets can kill.
"You were afraid of my father....That's why you had him murdered. You were of afraid of him, and I'm going to teach you to be afraid of me."
Just weeks after his father's horrific death, Matt Hunter confronts the murderous Lucius Creighdor and vows revenge. But battling this vicious foe is treacherous for Matt — and his steadfast league of friends. Yet without Paul's financial wizardry, Emma's scientic genius, Gabriel's cunning street smarts, and the historical expertise of Narada Chaudhary, Matt knows he will be lost.
When Creighdor unleashes a mind-mutilating creature that can control a person's will, Hunter's League must pull together by drawing on their individual strengths, all the time wondering if they've stumbled upon one terrifying secret too many — and one blood-thirsty monster too much.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-A sequel to Hunter's League (S & S, 2005), this book is an interesting combination of science and historical fiction. A group of 19th-century aristocrats and lower classes have united forces to fight Lucius Creighdor, a man of seemingly supernatural powers who wreaks havoc in London and has killed Matt Hunter's parents. In an attempt to discover the mysteries surrounding Creighdor's business, this group finds themselves in constant danger as they prowl, chase, shoot, and scheme through the underside of London, hiding from Creighdor and his henchmen. Unusual characters like rancher Jessie Quinn link England to the American West, and the shady Gabriel connects the upper and lower classes. The plot, while full of suspense, is a bit unbelievable. Matt and his friends uncover an automated Mummy imported from Egypt that projects images from history through his eyeballs. They are attacked by automated stone gargoyles, and discover Creighdor's plan to implant mind-controlling creatures into people's brains via their ears, all in a time period in which electricity has just been invented. Much of the character development depends on reading the first book, so it is a bit hard to understand how one woman knows so much about science and medicine and is able to perform an autopsy simply by befriending a young physician. The characters are a bit sketchy yet colorful, the description is good, and the short chapters are suspenseful.-Julie Webb, Shelby County High School, Shelbyville, KY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
