9780142416457: Gods of Manhattan 2: Spirits in the Park

Rory has known about Mannahatta?the spirit world filled with the ?gods? who ruled New York City in its early days?only a month when an earthquake strikes. This is no ordinary earthquake, though?it is the island?s attempt at breaking the Trap around Central Park. The Trap must open or the balance between Mannahatta and Manhattan will be destroyed?and only Rory can open it. But it will take help from Rory?s newfound friends, including the band of children of the gods?aka the Rattle Watch?and encounters with some of New York?s famous figures, including Washington Irving, Captain Kidd, and Bill the Butcher, to help him figure out how to do that. And the answer may just surprise him. . . .

About the Author:

Scott Mebus lives in Manhattan.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–8—In this sequel to Gods of Manhattan (Dutton, 2008), 13-year-old Rory, his sister, and the spirits of Manhattan lock wits over Central Park, where the spirits of the Munsee Indian tribe have been trapped for the last century. Rory struggles to find the clues that will allow him to understand the history of the mystical Mannahatta and the future that his powers as the Light will create. Bridget is no meek little sister following her brother's lead. She is strong and mischievous and integral to the tale. Off to a slow start, the story builds to a hectic and satisfying conclusion while leaving room for, but not making necessary, future books. History buffs will enjoy how figures from different eras all come together as gods in the spirit world of New York City, including Walt Whitman, God of Optimism; Jimmy Walker, God of Leaders Who Looked the Other Way; and Aaron Burr, a fallen god. Less-well-informed readers should still be able to follow and enjoy the novel on a different level. Mebus provides enough information for those new to the series, although certain characters take a lesser role here and have more depth if both titles are read.—Cara von Wrangel Kinsey, formerly at New York Public Library END
