The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Perilous Journey :: Book Review

Author: Trenton Lee Stewart
Series: The Mysterious Benedict Society
Book No.: 2

This book – The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Perilous Journey – by author Trenton Lee Stewart is about four kids that make up the Mysterious Benedict Society: Reynie Muldoon, George "Sticky" Washington, Kate Wetherall and Constance Contraire. While these four friends are all incredibly intelligent, they really don’t seem to have much in common and they all have their own unique approaches to solving problems. But their personal skills, when united together in service of the society, make for a very effective team.

The Prequel
This book is actually a sequel (second in a series) to the author’s first book, called The Mysterious Benedict Society. At the end of the first book, all of the children had made important discoveries about their heritage, their history and/or themselves, while they worked to save the world from an evil mastermind and his henchmen.


The Sequel
Now, in the sequel, the kids have to figure out how to put together the things they found out about themselves in the first book with what could be their most demanding assignment yet.


It seems like just an innocent reunion when the four society members are called together six months after the completion of their last mission. But then Mr. Benedict and his right-hand woman, Number Two, disappear into the hands of his nemesis (and identical twin) Ledroptha Curtain, leaving only a trail of clues scattered across continents.


As the kids race against time by train, bicycle, or the world's fastest cargo ship, they discover that their mission might have consequences not only for Mr. Benedict but also for humankind. Can the foursome track down Mr. Benedict and rescue him before it's too late?


Well, we can’t really tell you that now. It will ruin the ending! Pick up a copy of The Mysterious Benedict Society And The Perilous Journey to find out!


More About The Story
While we’re not going to reveal how the book ends, we can tell you a bit more about the story. We loved (and we’re sure you’ll love, too) the puzzles and clues found throughout the book. Like we said, each of the kids has his or her own special talent or gift and they're learning more about their individual powers all the time.


The first two-thirds of the book are set up like an international scavenger hunt race by at breakneck speed, as the kids discover and solve Mr. Benedict's clues, which are written especially for them.


As the mystery unfolds, Reynie has to decide if his new knowledge of human evil can allow him to believe the best of people regardless. Sticky is learning to balance his thirst for attention with his regard for others. Kate must learn how to be the daughter of an international super spy. And all of them have to think differently about three-year-old Constance, who is still discovering her unusual powers with the help of Mr. Benedict.

    A man danced down the alleyway, his eyes turned up to the heavens as he tripped blindly over the world that lay before his own two feet. He laughed and laughed as he danced, for the stars and the moon were the only friends he needed in his life: they were his family and friends, for he had none of his own. But as he danced and laughed, a woman came and grabbed him, forcing him to look once more at the world which he had abandoned long before and to look at her. So the man found a new friend, a new love, and he danced and laughed with the woman in his arms. But the sky did not forget his leaving it, and soon it took the woman away from him. The man was too afraid to turn his gaze to anything else, and so walked the world blind to all love for the rest of his days.
