A day Jack thought would last indefinitely. The young detective continues to struggle with the reality of it all, but lately his anger is getting the best of him after making the decision to return. His tag along partner Sonny does her best to aid and console him, but her own problems and fears are just beginning to manifest. Reentering the Holiday Hotel will open a whole new destination for the two where a new who-done-it style mystery will begin, and the search for his father will continue. Their next investigation begins just where it left off, leading Jack and Sonny to Cloud City. This broad new world will expose even more holiday spirits, legendary beings, and fabled monsters than they knew existed. The truth behind Jack's flashlight and the origin of several childhood stories will be revealed. Dark secrets of a few spirits will be brought to light, his flashlight will awaken new abilities, and a dangerous essence will blend the lines between fantasy and dreams to find Jack on the wrong side of justice. In Jack's second case, when the clouds grow dark in the city, there's much more than a storm brewing. This sequel to the young adult detective novel by Christian Wynn promises even more thrills and adventures to come in Jack Taylor's quest to reunite with his father. This second case of five in the series about grief will take him even further into this new realm that thinly separates fantasy from reality. Cloud City may be the next stop of Jack's journey but certainly won't be his last....

Cloud City Reviews
This is the second book in the series, and I loved it more then the first one. You can tell the author really enjoyed expanding on the characters that were already established and adding some new ones. The writing was clear and very descriptive and I could picture where they were and what was happening. He kept me guessing and trying to fig out who was behind everything. I can't wait for the third one!
A good continuation of the Cases. The writing still needs work, but I definitely can't wait to see what Season's Sacrifice has in store.
Better Than The First!I really liked the first one for what it was. It gave me a glimpse of this other world along with Jack and Sonny. This book I really grew to love. You can tell how much the author has grown in this book and how much the tone of this book has grown too. Many more holidays, many many more surprises and a new world with a common phrase of every cloud has a silver lining. If these really are Indy books they really don't seem like it.This second book got me from the beginning. I loved the opposite nature of the iPlane compared to the holiday hotel. The numbers references are still there on the ship and I thought it was funny he there was a "Steve Jobs" type running this incredible ship to a heaven-like Cloud City. Lucky may be new favorite Holiday spirit with his mob-like connections and Rocho sounds adorable. The twists in this book are all over. I don't want to spoil it but the dream sequences just flipped me around. If this book is ever a movie I will definitely be first in line. Hope it doesn't take forever for the third one.
I ordered this book the day that it was released and couldn't wait to get my hands on it! The twists in the story are constant and the author puts in so much symbolism and incorporates other fairy tales that blends in so easily. Jack is clearly a determined young man but also a hurt young man and I cannot wait to get more in depth with Sonny's back story. Without giving too much away I have to admit my favorite character in this book is now Redd. He's pretty bada** near the end! And Claus has some pretty neat powers that really get highlighted in a huge fight scene. Lucky and his goons really come in to save the day and I don't think that Jack and Sonny would have survived without them, multiple times! Overall the writing was good. Some places I got lost in too much detail but it was definitely improved from the first book. Hurry up with book 3 please!!!
