Rin has disappeared into Quarfelt, leaving Ozzy and Sigi with many questions.  When a ticket to New York City and an invitation to meeting arrive for Ozzy, he is sure that its from Rin, so Sigi decides to join him on the trip.  Her mom is out of town and they’ll be back the next day.  She’ll never know.  They discover, to their dismay, that their mysterious benefactor is instead a power-hungry fiend who wants to get his hands on Ozzy’s parents’ control formula no matter the cost.

Woo-hoo!  Welcome back to the world of wizard Rin – is he really a wizard?  Clark the bird is back too and Rin’s motives and action are just the right amount of enigmatic.  Ozzy and Sigi are a great foil for the other two.  And there are sure hints that a third book is in the works.  So much fun!
