Ace and Ridge are back to save their friend — and the world — from a maniacal genie in this sequel to The Wishmakers, which #1 New York Times bestselling author Chris Grabenstein praised as a “fantastically fast-paced and funny read.”
Being a Wishmaker may be more trouble than it’s worth. Sure, you get a genie who can grant an unlimited number of wishes, but for each one you make you have to accept an awful consequence in return. Not to mention that you’re also given an impossible quest and only seven days to fulfill it.
Despite everything, Ace and his genie, Ridge, managed to complete their last mission — but they couldn’t save their friend Tina from being taken by a rogue genie who’s bent on using his limitless power to rule the world. To rescue her, Ace must reunite with Ridge to become a Wishmaker once more and team up with the unlikeliest of new partners. It’s not every day you get a second chance to save the world, so Ace is determined to learn from his past mistakes and wish for the best, literally.
Perfect for fans of Max Brailler, Adam Gidwitz, and Dan Gutman, this middle grade series is a wonderful mix of unpredictable magic, zany humor, and daring adventure. You’ll wish it never ends!
