“Once again, Theo battles the Serpents of Chaos, but this time she must contend with her grandmother's determination to find her a suitable governess, some mysterious new artifacts at the museum, and an overly helpful assistant curator. Rarely does a sequel stand up as well as this one.”
— Sara Carter, Children's Bookshop, Kent, WA
