Publisher's Summary

Move over Percy Jackson. The Yogi's Curse has arrived...
Zoe and Zak are back in India. Again. And this time they're attending Moonstock Himalayan Boarding School, which might seem fun except for the fact that the school itself is a little strange.
Students ride elephants instead of school buses, snarling monkeys work as security guards, and angry parrots monitor the halls. And even when they manage to get used to the wildlife, the food is absolutely terrible.
But living with a bunch of other kids their age can be a lot of fun too, or at least it seems that way until Zoe's roommate goes missing. Following the directions written on a steamy bathroom mirror, Zoe and Zak fly through the clouds on their magic carpet to learn that the two of them have been chosen yet again. This time they've been asked to lift the Yogi's Curse.
It's not going to be easy. Zoe and Zak don't even know what the Yogi's Curse is let alone how to lift it, but like it or not, they soon discover that a whole lot of people are depending on them.
Now, if they're going to save the day, Zoe and Zak are going to have to fool the monkey guards, avoid the nasty parrots, and maybe even develop a supernatural ability or two. Because lurking beneath Moonstock is a powerful new enemy. And if Zoe and Zak can't stop him, nobody can.
If you liked Ghost Leopard, you'll love The Yogi's Curse. Join Zoe and Zak on their new adventure today!

A truly magical adventure for young adults!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this audiobook to anyone young or old, it was a great story and the narrator did an awesome job of portraying the characters and storyline.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Without a doubt my favorite character was Zoe - probably because she is a lot like me - headstrong and knows what she wants, doesn't let anyone push her around. And because there are a lot of aspects of her that I think any girl should look up to!


What about Sonja Field’s performance did you like?

I thought her voice was PERFECT for a young adult book. I could feel her passion for the story when listening to it and she did a great job portraying the characters and doing the different ethnic voices.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh a LOT. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I felt the characters were likeable and that anyone could relate to them, even older generations such as myself.


Any additional comments?

I read a lot of YA audiobooks and this one did not let me down! I loved the storyline and I thought the reader did an awesome job, loved her voice for a YA novel :) The book was funny and moving at the same time, Zoe is very likeable as a character, she has wit, brains and is headstrong with her own opinions and doesn't let anyone tell her what to think. Zak is funny and smart too, and I think most kids can relate to him because he was in a new place trying to make friends by being funny and showing off a bit.

I have not read the first book in this series but I didn't have a problem getting into it and understanding what was happening so I would say this could be a stand-alone book but I can't wait to read the first book and the 3rd book in the series as well :)

This book was fun and very magical, if you enjoyed Harry Potter or Percy Jackson I think you will love this series! The setting of India is awesome, monkeys and elephants and lizards oh my! And of course mystery abounds :) But I also loved the educational parts of the books - you get to meet a lot of other characters with different backgrounds/ethnicities.

The author manages to take what would be a difficult situation of being in a boarding house for kids and somehow make it fun and adventurous for all the kids. I can see this becoming a popular movie series because the characters are so awesome and I think a lot of people would love the story!

All in all this is a magically delicious story and I highly recommend the audiobook version. I don't think you miss out on anything with the audio as you can hear the adventure and passion in the reading - it was fun and easy to listen to and I definitely will be listening to the audio versions of the rest of the series :)

Totally engaging.

What made the experience of listening to Zoe & Zak and the Yogi's Curse (Volume 2) the most enjoyable?

The story and the presentation. I found myself involved from the beginning because it was easy for me to follow. In many ways this was better than a movie.


What did you like best about this story?

The variety of the characters and the presentation and the fact that it was easy to see them in my mind. This was a new experience for me. A really nice surprise.


What does Sonja Field bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This presentation made it easy for me to see the characters . Maybe it was her voice quality or accents. I relaxed and enjoyed. Just nice.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Get ready for a fantastic adventure!
