Review: Breadcrumb Trail (The Yellow Hoods #2) by Adam Dreece

Goodreads summary:

In an act of desperation, inventor Maxwell Watt entrusts his son to secretly deliver plans for his completed steam engine to Nikolas Klaus, a master inventor in another kingdom. When the Fare, the nefarious secret society, learns the game-changing invention’s plans are en route, they accelerate their own scheme to neutralize Klaus on their path to reclaiming long-lost control over kingdoms.

Meanwhile, after a decade of relative tranquility in Mineau, local children have started to go missing—again. Captain Archambault suspects the return of the disturbing and depraved Ginger Lady. With the help of Tee, Elly, and Richy—the Yellow Hoods—the search is on to find the missing children before it is too late.

What is the secret that ties one of the Yellow Hoods to the Ginger Lady?

Who are the Red Hoods?

Enjoy this darker, edgier instalment in the exciting emergent steampunk adventure series.

Called “The Harry Potter of technology” and “A cross between Hunger Games and the Kingkiller Chronicles,” the best selling series, The Yellow Hoods, is a gripping, whimsical adventure that’s layered for the young and mature adult, making it great for ages 9 to 90. (less)

4.5 STARS!!!


Breadcrumb trail, the second book in the yellow hoods series brought in intriguing new characters, a wider setting, and a juicier plot. As with the first book, this novel incorporates many important themes for children and adults alike. Adam Dreece’s fantastic, clever writing continues to draw me in, and the many subplots woven together kept the suspense and intrigue high.

This novel picks up a few months after the first, and the Yellow Hoods show subtle, natural character development. I was beyond thrilled that there was more of a focus on Richie in this book. His storyline was surprising to say the least! Tee is continuing to come into her own as the leader of their group. The Yellow Hoods set a great example for kids about character and compassion.

Nikolas Klaus is just as spectacular as he was in the first book! The new characters were so exciting, and I absolutely loved Mounira, a strong little girl who stole my heart. Another character, Franklin, was very interesting to me and had me hoping that him and Tee will become closer. The twists on fairy tails are wonderful in this novel. The story of the Ginger Lady was compelling and disturbing. This whole book had such great build up towards an action packed confrontation near the end.

All the different storylines tied together very nicely. This novel took me deeper into the characters back stories, and I felt even more connected to them and their world. This series is full of exciting adventure and passionate characters.

Adam Dreece wrote an enticingly evil ending that might have made my jaw hit the floor!
