Library Journal Review

Simon, Baz, and Penny are all feeling a bit at sea. They saved the world in Carry On, but none of them are quite sure what to do next. So Penny decides that a road trip is in order--one across America, to be specific, that starts with visiting her long-distance boyfriend, Micah, in Chicago and ends with seeing Agatha in San Diego. The trip starts poorly. After a disappointing visit with Micah (he broke up with her a year earlier, but she didn't notice; his new girlfriend seems nice at least), they have a much longer drive to San Diego than they expected (none of them realized quite how big the Western states are). And that's before the dragons and the vampires and learning that Agatha is being kept prisoner by a cult. VERDICT Fans of the first book will relish another visit with Simon and the rest of the gang.--Stephanie Klose, Library Journal
