Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In Book 2 of this breathtakingly action-packed series, warriors clash in an ultimate face-off between enemy empires, but both sides share an equal enemy: Giacomo.Giacomo, his fellow artists, and their teacher are on the run after a showdown with Nerezza, the emperor of Zizzola, who has vowed to destroy them and their precious Geniuses. They flee to Rachana, a South Asian-inspired world where it's the most powerful warriors, not artists, who possess Geniuses.The power-hungry Rachanan leader is more than happy to have Giacomo and his team--he's eager to find the next Sacred Tool, the Straightedge, and believes it's hidden somewhere in his empire. Meanwhile, Nerezza has devised a plan to control Giacomo and bend him to her will. But she'll have to start an all-out war to get to him.

Maps on lining papers.

Horn Book Review

In a world where artists have birdlike manifestations of their creative energy called "Geniuses," twelve-year-old Giacomo, his hummingbird Genius Mico, and his friends continue their search for the Sacred Tools while being hunted by a vengeful empress. A journey of self-discovery and belief, the second installment in the Rebel Genius series may be dense for casual middle-grade readers, but its world-building is exceptionally realized.
