The Beast of Seabourne was an amazing read, just as exciting as the first book. One of the reasons this was such an amazing read was because the author’s descriptions were so clear. For example, the author, Rhys A. Jones, wrote “Oz felt his scalp contract at remembering when he’d last been in this room...” The characters felt both well written and believable, and the characters were realistic. I would recommend reading book one first, but unlike some stories, if you haven’t read book one, you would have a smaller chance of being lost. This book is for all ages, so enjoy the story.
