Booklist - 03/01/2020 The second adventure in the Collectors series sees Van—following the fight with Mr. Falborg that resulted in Wish Eaters being set loose upon the world—finding a new job out in the country. While exploring this new location, he finds his missing friend, Pebble, and discovers an ancient Wish Eater buried down a well. As Mr. Falborg’s horrible plan comes into play, Van and Pebble must contact the Collectors and stop him before it’s too late. Here, West delivers a satisfying and thrilling sequel that expands on the wish mythology through the inclusion of an ancient Eater, dead wishes, and the magic of a meteor shower. Everything brilliant about book one is built upon, with the characters readers love being pushed to grow as the story delves into the various relationships of Van’s life. West also weaves in a theme of character complexity, showing how everyone has more than one side to them. She generally hits all the right notes with her well-written characters, expanding mythology, action-packed moments, breathtaking magic, and heartwarming friendships. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
