returntocardamomReturn to Cardamom; the Adventures Of Caramel Cardamom Book #2
By Julie Anne Grasso
136 pages – ages 8+
Published by Julie Anne Grasso on July 7th 2013

When Carmel Cardamom, a young elf living on the planet Cardamom, learns about how all of the precious cardamom crop has fallen and became bad, she is devastated (Caramel lives in the city and the crop is in the forests). Now the elves won’t be able to make their harvesting quota (and cardamom crystals wouldn’t be the galactic energy source anymore) All this was done because Alexander222, (an evil clone), Lex, (another evil clone), and Caramel’s evil Aunt Isabel (Phew that’s a lot of evil!) want to replace it. Caramel knows it’s the work of Alexander222 and Aunt Isabel again (they were in book 1 – see my first review HERE). Sadly, no one believes her because “Who could hide on a planet of mind-reading elves?” And it all gets worse when Alexander222 infects the people of Earth, including Caramel’s friends, with some kind of computer virus, putting everyone in a coma. This is a pretty hard problem for just one elf girl.

I really enjoyed this book – in fact, I read it in only one day! The book was very exciting and entertaining! I liked all the plot twists. They kept me on the edge of my seat. I really like Jorde, Caramel’s friend. He’s nice and pretty cool and good with computers. I think I would be very good friends with him. The story idea is great! I really hope that there will be a Book 3 in this series. Like Book 1, Book 2 was super clean and a great read for young readers!

I give Return to Cardamom 5 out of 5 book worms!fivebooks

  13. Nice job, Erik. That is a lot of stuff to post on one review. I had no idea what cardamon was either. So, we are reading a spicy tale. Yum!
