The hilarious sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller, set in the world of law-breaking leprechauns from actor and writer Thomas Lennon
Ronan Boyle may be the youngest and lowliest recruit to the secret Garda, but he’s determined to save his captain from the harpy that dragged her into Tir Na Nog at the end of book one. He may not be the strongest, or the smartest, or the best looking, or the most dexterous . . . so why was he picked for this mission? He’s not entirely sure. But he may be the captain’s only hope—if he can escape man-eating elves, escape a job in a unicorn’s lounge act, and find the captain before she’s sacrificed to a spooky cult trying to resurrect its leader. Eventually Ronan must battle the scariest monster of all: impostor syndrome. Fast-paced, action-packed, and utterly hilarious, the second book in the New York Times bestselling series delivers laughs and much, much more.

“The Ronan Boyle books are ridiculously funny. Like, Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett funny. I was laughing hysterically while reading them. My kids were laughing hysterically. My dog might have even been laughing hysterically while listening to us read it. (At least at the parts that involved dogs, of which there are a good number.). And in addition to being funny, the books are chock-full of adventure and excitement, with stereotype-defying werewolf, leprechauns and unicorns thrown in. They’re a tremendous joy to read from the first page to the last. Especially the part with the snakes.”
— Stuart Gibbs, New York Times bestselling author of the Spy School series
