Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents the second book in the New York Times best-selling Tristan Strong trilogy by Kwame Mbalia.

Tristan Strong, just back from a victorious but exhausting adventure in Alke, the land of African American folk heroes and African gods, is suffering from PTSD. But there's no rest for the weary when his grandmother is abducted by a mysterious villain out for revenge. Tristan must return to Alke - and reunite with his loud-mouthed sidekick, Gum Baby - in order to rescue Nana and stop the culprit from creating further devastation. Anansi, now a "web developer" in Tristan's phone, is close at hand to offer advice, and several new folk heroes will aid Tristan in his quest, but he will only succeed if he can figure out a way to sew broken souls back together.

I love this book it's so much fun don't think it's

This book is fantastic I read the first one and thought I was going to move on to something else and I decided to give the second one a try and I'm just hooked and moving straight to the third one. These books are so much fun for everyone I'm an adult and I love them. I wish I had books like these when I was a child. As a kid growing up the only stories we had with Black people in them were stories of slaves or MLK now these young kids get heroes and gods and adventures all with characters that look and sound like them and it's fantastic. Finally, I hope the author puts out some merch because I can't wait to get my Gum Baby t-shirt that says sap attack.

Excellent

Great storytelling - excellent interpretations of diasporic cultural stories and accessible metaphors for social issues that reflect the lives of Black people! I listen to these stories with or without my kids.

Just as good as the first book

Really Tristan Strong is a great series I laughed and loved hearing more of the stories inside the story. The characters are great and continue wonderfully fleshed out and the narrator gives such life to each character and so much personality with every word. I would as always recommend this series to anyone who is a fan Camp Halfblood, the Kanes or our friends from Valhalla.
