When I saw this book was free I simply had to get it, because I loved the first book in the series, and I was sure that the author will develop the action and the characters even more in the next books. And I wasn't disappointed. I read "The City of Worms" in one sitting. It was so good, I just couldn't put it down. Everything gets more complicated, and Owen has to fight evil forces again. I liked that new fantasy creatures were introduced and the world of Everville expanded even more before my eyes.
This is a series I have already recommended to some friends who love fantasy literature, which is not something I do very often. A book really has to impress me to determine me to talk about it with anyone who's willing to listen.

This book was awesome in the way it continued from the previous. Being able to remain with the original characters and see their resolve to set things right. Of course the bad guys have their own twist where the character and choices they make affect how they view what they feel is right. And seeing how even those who made poor choices when they change their thinking and go back home that they are forgiven and restored back to their true selves also shows insight to a greater good with forgiveness and understanding. Our main character Owen is constantly put in situations where the faith of his friends and fellow adventures help to give him the courage to get things done and continue to stay true to himself with honesty and integrity.

Book two continues the story as Dante is in a coma and stuck there along with others when chaos erupted in the city. Owen, a freshman in college must use his special talent to master the eight pillars, destroy the worms in the city of worms, and make Everville safe again, but evil is never vanquished and good must fight another day. Owen Sage and his true friends must find the clue to save those not already dead, and push back the darkness that creeps slowly toward the city. They now have to battle threats within their ranks and make a huge decision that could possible kill all of his friends!
Roy Huff kept me rapidly reading as I had to find out what happened in the next chapter! Giants and Everville armies must do battle with "Them" for the sake of all realms in the multi-universe, and can't wait to read book three!!

Everville: The City of Worms by Roy Huff is the second in the Everville Series. It really does not stand on its own, so read the books in order.
I really missed Owen Sage's first person narrative in this sequel. This is because, even though the story involves Owen, there is a lot happening without him in the other worlds, especially in Everville and in the City of Worms. There is s quest for the source that maintains the balance between the worlds (whoever owns it will have great power), battles with Giants, Ubaloo, Fron, and other creatures, and clues to find and figure out. As in the first book, the theme is the struggle between good and evil, and the corruption of power. Written for the YA audience, there is enough depth as a light fantasy for adults. Entertaining.
The narrator has a crisp clear voice and his pronunciation is good. However, he needs a bit more practice in doing a range of voices!
So the story. An epic fantasy where each pillar is a mark of a well rounded, well educated man! Ahm so what I hear you say? Well see in this fantasy a pillar also marks the point where the main protagonist shows real growth. I really like this. The internal battle is presented in short bursts and never slows down the action. In the end the action and the growth follows the same theme while the plot is action driven.
