The only cover I could find for this online was in Hungarian…go figure.

 

Dinah, Vincent, and their new pal Edaniel (a crudely-drawn catlike supernatural being I adore) head deeper into the mausoleum to fulfill the second part of Dinah and Vincent’s quest, assisting some restless spirits while battling others, towards the goal of meeting up with Edaniel’s cousin, the second guardian. Along the way, we find out a bit more about our main characters, get some fun one-liners from Edaniel, and meet some new and interesting folks. I’m not quite as taken with the second volume as I was with the first—I would’ve liked a touch more character development than we got here—but the plot is going along swimmingly and the situations our pals find themselves in are lots of fun. Will be picking up the next volume in the series posthaste. *** ½
