This second installment in the Tales from the Chocolate Heart features the orphan waitress Silke. She is determined to make a name for herself and gets an offer from the crown princess that she cannot refuse. Her work at the palace leads to a showdown with the fairy royalty. Once again chocolate plays a leading role and I think all of us yearn to taste the spicy chocolate brew that it so prolific in these books. Maybe someday. . . For now we look forward to the next book featuring Princess Sofia.

Silke takes the stage and shines in this spectacular sequel. You don't even need to have read the first book to understand what's going on, though of course it adds interest.

Silke's unflappable confidence felt very real, and my military brat heart felt a pang every time she expressed her desire to have a single forever home that could never go away. (I'm still looking for mine.) She got every bit of the fleshing-out and more that she deserved here. I laughed, I cried, I held my breath, and when it was over, I wanted more. I'm crossing my fingers for a trilogy with Sylvia at the center of the next one -- she's really piqued my interest.

Hand to fans of the first book, as well as kids with a knack for storytelling themselves into -- and out of -- trouble.
