The second book in New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer's Lost Rainforest series will thrill fans of Warriors and Spirit Animals with action and humor as the shadowwalkers battle to save their magical rainforest home.

Caldera always existed in harmony between the creatures who walk by day and those who walk by night-until an ancient evil awakened. In the year since the shadowwalkers' narrow escape from the Ant Queen, the ants' destruction has only spread.

Gogi, a shadowwalker monkey still learning to wield his fire powers, embarks on a quest with his friends-including a healing bat, an invisible panther, and a tree frog who controls the winds-for a powerful object that can harness the magic of the eclipse to defeat the Ant Queen.

But with just weeks before the next eclipse, Gogi must race to prove that he can control the mighty depths of his talent if he is to protect his friends, save the rainforest, and return home unsinged.

Reviews for Gogis Gambit (#2 Lost Rainforest)

Just right for middle grade readers who want an engrossing fantasy adventure. --School Library Journal With a memorable, quick-bantering cast, this kickoff to the Lost Rainforest series, a playful departure from Schrefer's ape novels, brings fresh perspective to the magical animal subgenre. And, despite the fantasy setup, readers will come away learning quite a bit about this ecosystem and its inhabitants. --Publishers Weekly While the story is pure fast-paced fantasy, the underlying issues are real. Ignorance among the species, racism, and intolerance of differences are rampant. An author's note highlights the beauty and importance of the rainforest. Magic with depth in this new series stunner. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) PRAISE FOR MEZ'S MAGIC: Unlike anything I've read. Eliot Schrefer has mined the richness and depths of his setting to find a deeper magic, immersing us in a world that is at once complex, dangerous, beautiful, and ultimately demanding of our protection. A thrilling start to an exceptional new series. --Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of the School for Good and Evil series Mez's Magic is packed with as many jokes as fast-paced fight scenes. And Schrefer has created a stock of memorable characters--including Gogi, a monkey with self-esteem issues; Rumi, a delightfully urbane tree frog; and a manic, pixie-dream bat named Lima. --New York Times Book Review
