This series continues to be an entertaining blend of magic and mystery, with intrepid wizard apprentice/girl sleuth Oona Crate. I didn't like it quite as much as the first book in the series, but the puzzles and wordplay were enjoyable, and the world of Dark Street is well drawn.

ona Crate is back and seeking out a mystery. But she won't be using magic, only her wit. She has made her way to Oswald park to attend the famous Magician's Tower Contest, which takes place every five years. Oona hadn't been to the park since a failed magic spell cost the lives of her mother and baby sister. Moving forward Oona will rely on the facts instead of magic. With her raven companion Deacon, Oona's latest adventure begins.

Oona gets a break in her boardom when she encounters a fortune teller named Madame Romania from Romania who promises to unfold information that will release Ooona from the burden of her mother and sister's deaths. Upon her visit they discover that the punchbowl oracle, which has the power to reveal this truth, is missing. It was out of the question for the fortune teller to go to the police. As a result, Oona takes it upon herself to solve the mystery of the missing oracle, in-spite of the wizards request for her to stay focused on the contest. It's up to Oona to solve this mystery, win the contest and make her long gone parents proud.

Odyssey has created another great adventure for middle grade readers. This latest mystery is full of puzzles, clues and a magical mystery that is sure to keep readers engaged and eager to solve the “whodunit” story. Mystical characters and vivid imagery make for a quick easy read. Parents and teachers will enjoy having this in their library.
