Amari and the Great Game
Amari and the Great Game | B. B. Alston
10 posts | 7 read | 1 reading | 5 to read
Sequel to the New York Times bestseller Amari and the Night Brothers! Artemis Fowl meets Men in Black in this magical second book in the New York Times and Indie bestselling Supernatural Investigations trilogy--perfect for fans of Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky, the Percy Jackson series, and Nevermoor. After finding her brother and saving the entire supernatural world, Amari Peters is convinced her first full summer as a Junior Agent will be a breeze. But between the fearsome new Head Minister's strict anti-magician agenda, fierce Junior Agent rivalries, and her brother Quinton's curse steadily worsening, Amari's plate is full. So when the secretive League of Magicians offers her a chance to stand up for magiciankind as its new leader, she declines. She's got enough to worry about! But her refusal allows someone else to step forward, a magician with dangerous plans for the League. This challenge sparks the start of the Great Game, a competition to decide who will become the Night Brothers' successor and determine the future of magiciankind. The Great Game is both mysterious and deadly, but among the winner's magical rewards is Quinton's last hope--so how can Amari refuse?

I loved Amari from the start when I was lucky enough to win a draw for a signed advance copy of the first book and a group zoom call with other indie booksellers, with B B Alston (what a warm and humble guy). So I've been waiting patiently until Christmas for this one and a rainy indoorsy day to devour it cosied up by the fire. Brilliant, gripping, magical adventure with awesome female leads, LOVED it.

Finally reading the new Amari (Yes, primarily on my Kobo copy to protect my beautiful Waterstones special edition. Yes, I may have a problem) and when I tell you this book has me STRESSED. But also these books have given me back a magic I wasn‘t sure I would find again and I adore them.

Wow. What a wonderful package for #allHallowsReadSwap from @forestandcrow I can not wait to delve into this series and just recently I was trying to talk my friends into giving P Briggs a try and now I have a copy for our buddy read she is planning. It‘s awesome. Thank you.

There are also wonderful stickers and pencils but I didn‘t want to play keep away with the cat.

forestandcrow I was excited to see that my local book store had a signed copy! It was the last one 😊 I'm so happy you love it. 3mo

Amari is back for a second year. So is Dylan. But it‘s Elise and Jayden really stole the story for me. They‘re both such great characters. Jayden fits so well right in with the group. I feel bad for Amari and the amount that the bureau goes against her for being a magician. Just be sure of what group she “belongs to.” Cannot wait for what book 3 entails.

This audio book was an excellent distraction as I went to get my vaccine booster, and then had a lazy day on the couch after. Same action and humor as Amari goes through a second summer with the bureau.

I loved Amari! This is a Waterstone‘s exclusive signed edition with matching block sprayed edges.

B.B. Alston‘s sophomore Amari story is FIRE, my friends!

Amari and the Night Brothers was one of my favorite middle grade books last year, and the Great Game is a worthy successor to that romp of a book.

There‘s excitement beyond measure here, and a cliffhanger ending that will have fans eagerly waiting for the next installment.

The kids are gonna love this one!

Amandajoy Ohhh! I preordered this! I‘m trying to decide if I let my stepdaughter read it first. 5mo

This is the second installment in this series. It continues to have a wonderful young female hero (13 years old) and together with her friends they fight evil in the supernatural world. I loved the first book in the series and enjoyed this one, but I am definitely not the target audience. This is a great choice for the preteen fantasy reader and while girls will be drawn to it, we should encourage boys to pick it up well. I gave it 4/5 stars.
