Authors Francesco Sedita and Prescott Seraydarian bring us book two of The Pathfinders Society graphic novel series: The Curse of the Crystal Cavern. Main characters Vic, Henry, Kyle and Harry are put to the test as they try to solve the clues in this story full of mystery and peril. On their quest, they learn a little Latin and the importance of teamwork. Illustrator Steve Hamaker’s great pictures add to the depth and excitement of the text. As it is book two of a series, not everything is completely clear so it might be a good idea to start with book one, The Mystery of the Moon Tower. Being a graphic novel, there’s not a complicated plot and things move along quickly so this is the perfect read for those who enjoy stories with adventure and riddles that are easy to get through in one or two sittings.
