School Library Journal - 07/01/2017 Gr 4–6—Secrets abound in the Finley household: Where did Gabriel Finley's mother disappear to, and why won't his father tell him? Who is the father of Gabriel's close friend Abby, who lives in Gabriel's house along with her cross mother, who won't tell Abby anything? It's up to Gabriel and his three brave and loyal friends—Abby, Pamela, and Somes—to find the answers and save the world from the evil demon Corax. In this follow-up to Gabriel Finley and the Raven's Riddle, characters both human and raven solve potentially life-and-death puzzles. Gabriel and his friends travel to the Underworld below New York City to free Gabriel's mother, and encounter danger, such as the wicked "valravens," who seek to free Corax from the imprisonment Gabriel and his friends unwittingly imposed and who try to exact revenge. VERDICT Full of mystery, intriguing riddles, and magic, this sequel enchants readers from beginning to end. Purchase where the first installment has fans.—Kathy Kirchoefer, Henderson County Public Library, NC - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
