I got a kick out of the first book in this series, so I was extra excited to be offered the chance to read an early copy of book 2. There are some great additions in this book that expand the themes of family and friendship. The fantasy elements are terrific - the interactions with Spike are great! And there are a few questions left unanswered. But no fear, there's sure to be a third book in the future. Fun addition to any home or classroom library and a great read for fantasy fans.

Sophie has been waiting for another Camelot Code.  She just didn't realize that she was going to receive it the week of her father's wedding or that when she typed it in, her soon to be stepsister, Ashley was going to be sucked into the adventure as well.  Merlin is on spring break and when a druid, Nimue, comes into his cave looking for help his new assistant helps by turning the Holy Grail into a chicken and then a dragon?  Merlin must be found and the grail returned to it's true form for King Arthur to live.   Sophie, Ashley, and Spike (the dragon/grail) pick up Stu on their way to Los Vegas (where Merlin is vacationing at the Excalibur).  Stu has something he needs to tell Sophie, but doesn't want to ruin their adventure.  Tension builds and adventure abounds as these friends travel through time and into Fairie to save the world as we know it.

This book was received as an ARC from Disney Book Group - Disney-Hyperion in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. 

I have read the first installment of the Camelot Code and being a King Arthur fan, I loved every page and every ounce of excitement that I took from The Once and Future Geek. Now, with the sequel Geeks and the Holy Grail, is another twisted adventure that Sophie and Stu must resolve in order to keep protecting the spirit of King Arthur and remain a Camelot companion. This time they are on a quest to get the Holy Grail so King Arthur can drink it and recover from his deathly illness so a matter of life or death is at stake and Stu and Sophie will stop at nothing to get it. From beginning to end, the book will be shockingly good, twistedly excited, and most of all wanting to know what will happen next!

We will consider adding this title to our JFiction collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

I hands down loved the first book in this series. I first picked it up to read to my kids but I found myself enamored with the story. I love how the author took a classic literary character and placed him not only in the modern age but mixed it with modern places and video games. The premise of this is so fun! The second book was just as delightful. The author mixes in dragons (omg!), Las Vegas, and the weird family dynamic of adding in new step siblings and developing a new relationship. This book is very fun and was a true delight to read.
