Seven Wonders Book 2: Lost in Babylon by Peter Lerangis
Marco’s tracker takes Jack, Cass, and Aly to the ancient remains of Babylon. Once they locate Marco, he takes them through a time-travel portal to a thriving Babylon and its famous Hanging Gardens. As they remove the Loculus at the gardens, Babylon is hit with massive earthquakes. The friends leave Babylon and return with Shelley—an electronic orb invented at the Karai Institute that will harness the power of a Loculus. But Massarene monks follow the tween's back to Babylon, thanks to a traitor within the four friends.
The roller-coaster ride of adventure continues in the second book of Lerangis’ Seven Wonders series. In the midst of the non-stop action and nail-biting suspense, Lerangis takes the time to explore the newly formed bond between the four friends. After getting to know one another from their first quest, Jack, Marco, Aly, and Cass have accepted each other as family. And as a family the four tweens are able to accomplish amazing feats together. Yet, what would happen if one of them strayed from the others? The shock of losing a friend to the Massa makes the other tweens question the true purpose behind the Karai Institute. The third book in the Seven Wonders series is The Tomb of Shadows.
