The Neptune Challenge (The Neptune Project #2) by Polly Holyoke
May 19th, 2015 from Disney-Hyperion

Danger lurks beneath

Genetically engineered to survive in the ocean, Nere and her friends are recovering from their long, treacherous journey to refuge and settling in at Safety Harbor. Despite its name, plenty of dangers still lurk just outside the colony's boundaries. When two among them are kidnapped, the remaining Neptune kids and their loyal dolphins must set out on a mission even more perilous than their first: infiltrate the kidnapper's fortress to save their friends and steal away a vital scientific secret that may save the world and its oceans. Fighting terrifying mutated creatures and teens, will the Neptune kids find a way to save their friends, themselves, and their underwater world? The stakes couldn't be higher in this thrilling sequel to the award-winning The Neptune Project.

  1. I absolutely loved this story. I happened to read it for the first time out loud, and was not prepared to get as involved with the characters as I did. I had a book hangover for weeks. I can't wait to dive in again!!

  3. Love the colors on this one! I really enjoyed Project, but I wonder if the dark cover for Challenge is an indication that the sequel will be a bit darker...

    1. I think it's about the same level of intensity, although I do introduce a really great villain. Nere loves to surface to see sunrises and sunsets because she misses land so much, and I think the designer decided to play with that concept in the colors he/she picked.

  4. The book sounds pretty interesting. Mutated teenagers? That sounds very monstrous.

    1. Hey, Dawn, I just started a giveaway on GR that's open to Canadian entries. But if you don't win that, I think I may have to send you a copy anyway because of all your brilliant ideas I borrowed for my teacher guides. Say hi to your kids for me!
