This book is a great follow-up to the first Amos Daragon, which I also reviewed. I liked Amos' clever wits when he outsmarted Charon, ferryman of the dead, by promising him double nothing and giving him exactly that - two times nothing! I enjoyed the intricacies of Braha, how it was the same as an ordinary city; judges, ordinary people, thieves, etc., and how it was different because of the giant pyramid in the center. I certainly did not expect the Key of Braha to be edible! Amos is definitely the most clever twelve-year-old I have ever heard of. Anyone who has read the first Amos Daragon - The Mask Wearer - needs to get ahold of book two - it's spectacular!
