Learning about a magical and ancient ring known as Solomon's Seal, (known to grant its wearer the ability to speak to animals and spirits) the children must decide if playing with the spiritual realm, and potentially speaking to their parents one last time is worth the risk of putting their souls in danger.

Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is the second novel in the fantasy/ paranormal series, The Secret Seekers Society that I have had the privilege of reading by the amazing J.L. Hickey. Now if you have read my review on book one you would know that I love this series and I compared it to Harry Potter. After this instalment I still believe that. This book was a bit slower in the beginning only because it was giving the reader a lot of backstory, which I love. Otherwise it was the perfect sequel to book one. It was a tiny bit scary because it was dealing with ghosts, spirits and wraiths, but it was a cool story haha. I also liked the tie-in to Solomon's ring. I can't wait to read book three to see how Elly will be affected by the ring. Also I want to know what kinds of trouble the kids will get into next. If you love Harry Potter you will fall in love with The Secret Seekers Society.
