The Reckless Rescue by Adrienne Kress - OPTIONAL

Kress, Adrienne The Reckless Rescue (The Explorer’s #2), 384 pages.  Delacorte (Random), APRIL 2018. Content: G  (some mild danger).

Just as Sebastien thought he was safe, he has been kidnapped by Mr. M. and Mr. I and swept away in pursuit of their nefarious plans.  Evie is left behind at the Explorers’ Society, trying vainly to get someone to help her rescue Sebastien.  Only Catherine, one of the original Filipendulous Five will help her.  Cue rescue by Korean boy band and plunging into an active volcano.

Unfortunately, while full of weirdness and action, this book books epitomizes the perils of the middle book of a trilogy – all action that does absolutely nothing to forward the plot.  I hate to tell anyone they will have to wait for the next book in the series, but what can you do.  I wish Kress would write another Friday Society bok instead.
