Welcome to New York! M Tara Crowl’s second Eden of the Lamp novel sends her genie to New York and describes the delights of the city with the wonder of a tourist and the knowledge of a genuine insider. It’s exciting. It’s magical. It’s fun. And it’s dangerous for Eden, who has to hide the fact that she’s a genie. Still, all goes well until she ends up in Paris with no way to get home. Evocative, exciting, intriguing and filled with action and adventure, Eden’s Escape is a thoroughly enjoyable sequel to Eden’s Wish. It could be read as a standalone, but the books work so beautifully together I’d certainly recommend reading them in order. Twelve-year-old Eden is just learning to be human, and just learning, like other children her age, to be somewhat nearer to grown-up. She’s impulsive. She’s loyal. She’s rebellious. And she’s delightfully real. Meanwhile her antagonists have the fierce determination of Disney’s Cruella De Ville, and all the magic that modern technology can dream. If you think the internet’s spying on you… well, read and enjoy. Eden’s Escape is delightfully modern and up-to-date, enjoyably old-fashioned with wishes and lamp, and a thoroughly entertaining read, with the added value of Paris and New York, enjoyed in all their glory. Please write more! Disclosure: I was the lucky recipient of a signed copy, no strings attached.

This book takes off where the first one in the series ends, and assumes that the reader already knows several of the characters from book one. In other words, I don't recommend to read this as a stand alone. Eden is settling into her new life on Earth with her new guardian, and it's as fun as she'd hoped! When she's suddenly summoned away by a wisher who has her lamp, things take a drastic turn for the worse, and Eden finds herself in another adventure. The first chapters introduce Eden to New York and her adjustment to life on Earth. The dialogue is snappy, the scene descriptions bring the world to life, but the drive as to what Eden wants is missing, which made it a little difficult to sink into those first chapters. When she suddenly goes missing, however, the pace picks up and the adventure begins. Eden again finds herself in trouble, and her actions and decisions are a treat to follow. She's a girl easy to sympathize with and cheer for until the very end. There's a nice pinch of humor thrown in with the action, and the other characters add fun personalities to make it a rounded crew. There are several twists and turns, which are hard to see coming. And the ending again leaves enough loose strings to promise a third book. Summed up, it's a cute read middle graders are sure to enjoy. I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
