F.T. Bradley has done it again, presenting us with yet another thrilling Linc Baker adventure! This is one of those cases where the sequel lives up to the hype of the first book. With the perfect blend of mystery, spies, and a plot so big you’ll have a hard time figuring out who-is-who. Double Vision: Code Name 711 is definitely one of my favorite books this year.
Linc, Lincoln, Baker is back for his second mission from Pandora. This time, he’s headed for D.C. to uncover a plot that has higher stakes than the one from the previous book. Of course, Benjamin Green is back, sticking his nose into Linc’s plans, or what he thought was his. One of my favorite characters was also back, Henry, the tech guy and his wacky, but useful inventions. Henry is always a great addition to Linc’s adventures, and some of his antics in Code Name 711 had me laughing out loud. Along the way, Linc met some interesting characters, who essentially proved vital to uncovering Dagger’s plot.
It shouldn’t be hard to guess that I absolutely loved the way the story was executed. In my eyes, this book had something about it—an appeal almost—that’s sure to grab the attention of children of all ages. From nearly the first page, we were immediately given the details—that were a little sketchy—of Linc’s newest mission. As the story progressed, we also found out a little more about Pandora and its iffy origins. And by the time the book ended, there were still questions lingering in the air. Needless to say I need the next book. So five birdcages because not only did I absolutely love it, I also recommend this one to everyone!
