Publisher's Summary

Jason Lex just saved the world. Now he's immersed in training as a new Rampart Guard to protect the shield that enables humans and cryptids like Skyfish, Bigfoot, and the Black Shuck, to live side-by-side and danger-free. A summons from the League of Governors, the clandestine organization that presides over the human-cryptid treaty, takes a suspicious turn when Jason's dad and sister disappear on their way to League headquarters. Jason must find them before things go bad, so he follows their trail to London, where he discovers the League of Governors may not be the benevolent organization everyone believes.
Injured and alone, Jason doesn't know whom to trust. After a shocking loss sends him reeling, news about his family forces Jason to make a terrible choice. When he learns of a secret plan to enslave the world, Jason must risk his life to defeat a powerful enemy and reunite what's left of his family. But can he stop a dominating adversary, and again save the world, before it's too late?

Continuation - fun middle grade, fantasy adventure

This book continues the ‘adventures’, or in this case the “misadventures” of Jason Lex. Jason’s father and sister, Della, flew to London to seek counseling help at the League of Governors. Jason has cause to be concerned when he and his Uncle Alexander can’t reach his father by phone. They decide to follow to London to make sure everything is alright. They quickly learn that things are not all right.

Jason and his Uncle are attacked. When he awakes he is at the League and learns that Uncle Alexander is in a coma. A stranger sneaks him a secret message and Jason doesn’t know who he can trust. Jason struggles trying to determine how he can save his family, and the world, from enslavement by a super powerful, mind controlling enemy.

I am glad that I listened to book one before book two. It was a little hard and frustrating imagining Jason fighting alone. The story goes on quite a bit with danger and little hope of a positive resolution. This makes it a bit dark. Still, I enjoyed the helpful characters and wondering how the other creatures might help defeat the evil. Again, I think middle graders would enjoy the danger and excitement… and it is adequately entertaining for an adult as well.

Audio Notes: Brian Callanan again does a good job with the narration, giving voices to the characters. His strong narration makes the story a fun listening experience. I enjoyed listening to both books.

I received this audio title from the narrator through AudioBook Boom.

Action and Adventure!

This is book two in The Adventures of Jason Lex series. If you haven't read book one, I'd recommend picking it up first! Book two begins with Jason training to be a Rampart Guard to protect the world from cryptids like Bigfoot and Cappas. After the events of the first book, Della is still severely depressed, so Jason's dad takes her to The League of Governors headquarters in London. They're hoping to get treatment for Della, but Jason's dad and Della disappear after they arrive.

Jason and Uncle Alexander hop a plane to London to find them, but things get even stranger. The passcode to get into League headquarters has been changed, and when they visit a friend of Uncle Alex's, they're attacked. Jason wakes up in the medical unit at League headquarters, where he's warned that things at the League aren't as they seem.

This was a great book for fans of the YA, adventure, and paranormal genres. It was an entertaining read that kept me hooked with twists and turns and betrayals! Jason is fourteen, but he faced choices and situations that would disturb an adult. He faced it maturely and that was refreshing. I loved Colleen, such a brave girl in a quiet way, and hope we get to see her again. Again, the identity of the 'big bad' was a surprise, and there were some revelations near the end that were pretty unexpected.

The narration was really well done, Brian Callanan performed voices for men, women, and younger children, and had a distinct voice for each of them. They fit the characters well, and I enjoyed his English accents. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
