The next adventure of the newly-formed Athena Club, a group of literature-adjacent young women variously experimented on or deeply affected by said experiments, sees them travel to Europe to rescue the kidnapped Lucy Van Helsing.
They make some new friends, uncover more details of the evil world-spanning conspiracy that continues to shape all of their lives, and bond ever more over their terrible parents and shared differences.
It’s great. Not as great as the first installment, since that one came as such a fun surprise half of the fun of it was just discovering one literary allusion after another. But great, nonetheless.
So great, I am going immediately onto the next — and possibly last — one.
