I don’t think I want to know that much about anyone,”  adds Anastasia.  After their narrow escape from a nefarious kidnapping, Anastasia, Ollie, Quentin, (a.k.a. The League of Beastly Dreadfuls!) with the addition of gorgon Gus are looking forward to a relaxing vacation in a palace with Anastasia’s newly identified royal family. Anastasia learns that her family is at the heart of a centuries-old scandal that began with the dastardly deed. This is the second book in the series, with the next book scheduled for release next year.  It is full of hilarious humor and playful language.
