When I read this, I had no clue that The Fourth Ruby was book 2 of the Section 13 series. I just plowed through it because I loved it—a super-clever fantasy/adventure. I was intrigued that part of Jack’s character parallels the author’s—both have an existing condition, a super power I’d call it, to be hyper-observant because of synesthesia. And this “super power” helps Jack figure out & solve quite a few problems in the story in a unique way. Do start with book 1: The Lost Property Office, & when you finish, you know book 2 is already waiting, & James Hannibal is busy at work on book 3!
Jack and Gwen are back in this dynamic follow-up to The Lost Property Office
It's been a year since Jack Buckles discovered the Keep beneath Baker Street, an underground tower no Section Thirteen was ever supposed to see; a year since his dad fell into a coma. Nothing has been the same since. Jack's tracker abilities are on the fritz, Gwen's not speaking to him and, what's worse, there's a pounding voice in his head calling for "the flame."
Jack and Gwen are framed for the theft of a historic crown jewel--the Black Prince's Ruby, one of three cursed rubies said to bring knowledge, loyalty, and the command of nations to whomever wields them all. Now, they must retrieve the other jewels before the true thief does, or risk unleashing a reign of terror unlike anything history's ever seen.
