"Milford's clever, complex plot is full of humor, tantalizing clues, and stories within the story... A brainy, satisfying assemblage of puzzles with an immensely likable protagonist." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Milford artfully weaves a mystery that revolves around a large group of characters, new and old. Characters are quirky, scheming, funny, and not entirely what readers may expect. A solid middle grade book best for those who appreciate a good plot twist and a great story. A recommended purchase for most libraries, especially where there are fans of the first installment." — School Library Journal
"Working on many levels, Milford delivers a head-scratching mystery, an eerie ghost story, hints of romance, and tales within tales that explore the (fictional) history of Nagspeake... And when it all comes together at the satisfying climax, readers might go straight back to the beginning to read the book again." — Horn Book Magazine
"[Milford's] richly visual language brings scenes vividly to life, and while there’s certainly enchanting magic to be had, Milo’s talents don’t come from supernatural gifts but rather his own imagination and intelligence, which is an empowering change from classic fantasy narratives." — Booklist
