Fugitives of Chaos by John C Wright

The second book in Wright's Narnia-esque series picks up where the first one left off.  It doesn't offer anything new, but I don't see that as a bad thing.  I enjoyed this book since he tries to provide a scientific or rational explanation for the gods and their various powers.  No one is omnipotent and the magic obeys Sanderson's First Law, which is crucial for the success of a story with magic.  Wright has added an interesting layer to our reality and has created unique characters.  They're supposed to be young adults and their actions are believable.

I highly recommend this book.
