In book one of the Lionboy series Charlie Ashanti helped a group of circus lions to escape and now they are on the Orient Express heading for Venice in search of Charlie's parents. Little do they know, but more danger and intrigue awaits them in Venice. It seems that there only friend in Venice has ulterior motives in helping Charlie. With the lion's evil owner trying to regain the lions and Charlie's enemy Rafi still trying to turn him over to the Corporation, Charlie has plenty of problems to deal with.
“Lionboy – The Chase” is a worthy sequel to the first “Lionboy” book. I especially enjoyed the wonderful descriptions of Venice and the new characters introduced in this second installment of “Lionboy” are just as interesting as the original ones. I would definitely recommend “Lionboy – The Chase” to anyone who has read the trilogy's first book.
Note: The author Zizou Corder is not a real person. Rather it is a stage name used by Louisa Young and Isabel Adomakoah Young.
