Wish List Wednesday:The Telling Stone

The Telling Stone (Time Out of Time, 2) by Maureen Doyle McQuerry, May 12, 2015. Published by Amulet Books.
The race of the free Scots shall flourish, if this prediction is not false: wherever the Stone of Destiny is found, they shall prevail by the right of Heaven.

Following the malicious attack by Balor the One-Eyed, Timothy James returns home to tend to his ill mother. Jessica, feeling lost and alone, is left at the Traveler’s Market to try to rescue Sarah, Timothy’s sister, who’s imprisoned there. Meanwhile, Balor has concocted a plot to use Jessica as bait to draw Timothy into the battle between Light and Dark…

The children must embark on a quest to seek the Four Treasures of the Market—including the all-important Telling Stone. Armed with an ancient map that contains a secret code, they travel to Scotland, where the stone is rumored to be hidden. In their quest, they are both helped and hindered by characters from the pages of myth and folklore. Balor will stop at nothing to prevent them from completing their quest, and it will require courage, cunning, and cooperation for them to survive. Each discovers unexpected strengths when it seems all hope has been lost.
Why: After reading Beyond the Door last week, I am in dire need of The Telling Stone. There was just so much left hanging in the balance at the end of the first one that I need more. I really enjoyed everything about book one and cannot wait to get my hands on the second installment to see where the story will go next!!
