P.W. Catanese launched his immediately popular Books of Umber series with Happenstance Found, which Publishers Weekly praised for rich characterization ... and genuinely surprising twists. In this riveting sequel, Hap must contend with Caspar, who holds the secrets to Hap's powers - but wants something precious in return. And Hap also learns of stolen dragon eggs, which in the wrong hands could spread winged doom over the land.

    " The narrator of the recorded version is GREAT! Fun to "read" this book while driving. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marianne | 2/2/2014

    " Thought this book filled with a few too many monsters. It felt a bit forced and peopled, but was still good, even though something of a bridge book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 1/31/2014

    " I just really, really like these books. Even though it is a series, each book ends--there is no cliff hanger. Can't wait for the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Everett | 1/28/2014

    " I am really wondring about the connection with Hap's brother. He seemed like a weary guy without a job and parents, who just wants some family. Although, I think Hap should have told his 'brother' who he was. Also, I am a little suspicious about he Creepand if he's still around, and also the dead prince's servant, who seemed to have felt horrible, except for that he might be faking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/24/2014

    " Dragon Games by P.W Catanese is a fantasy book were Hap finds his brother and finds out what really happened to him. Then Hap and Umber go to a land with an evil king but they go to see the dragon games. After the games Umber takes the dragon eggs and a baby dragon so that he can set them free. So they take one of the warships and sail off. The king dies and the super evil prince sets off after them. Luckily they escape and and go back to Kurahaven and they all live happily ever after until they find out Kurahavens good king died. The book was full of adventures every second and it was just a great book! I can't wait to read the third one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anita | 1/17/2014

    " The second in the 'Books of Umber' series where the adventures of Lord Umber and his ward, Happenstance continue, as they try to find the answers as to Happenstance's identity. There are some incredible creatures in the story, which for their function and purpose are brilliant creations of the imagination and although mentioned early on the story, are tied seamlessly into the plot at every available juncture. Very creatively written and I enjoyed this very much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Sly | 12/8/2013

    " I won't say much since this is the second book in a trilogy, but I enjoyed the read very much. I am still sad that these books are only a trilogy, but look forward to picking up the third and final book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cara | 4/29/2013

    " Much better than the first book, more depth to the characters and interesting adventures, not typical of so many fantasy stories these days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cory | 1/5/2013

    " Really strong for a book 2. Read it straight through in one sitting. Upped the emotional ante. didn't rehash old crap. Well done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 10/19/2012

    " 3.5 stars. This was really good for a sequel. It had a lot if action and started answering some of the mysteries presented in the first book. I didn't like it as much as the first book because the tone was a lot darker. It was lacking the humor of the first book but was a more mature read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mimi | 9/12/2012

    " I just love how creative this story is! Can't wait for the sequel if there is one! "

    " Gasp! Oh no! Shake of head! My constant reactions to the constant flow of events! I shall not wish for a servant to do all my bidding's, nor will I look at crabs with the same soul searching look! Very enjoyable book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lara | 4/29/2011

    " Once again I this series was a disappointment. It felt like I was reading an outline where the details of the story were hardly sketched in. I won't read anymore of the series. "
