About This Book:
X-Men meets Spy Kids in the thrilling second installment in The Forgotten Five fantasy/adventure series that began with the instant New York Times bestseller Map of Flames.
The forgotten five have made it to Estero to search for their missing supernatural criminal parents. With the help of their new allies, Lada and The Librarian, they’ve managed to find Birdie and Brix’s mother, Elena, and free her from captivity in the presidential palace. Now the president’s henchmen are searching everywhere for the children who broke out Elena, driving the group into hiding in the ancient underground tunnels beneath the city.
Meanwhile, President Fuerte is making headlines for his nighttime flights to other countries accompanied by an invisible man. But why would the president who outlawed supernaturals be working with the people he supposedly hates? And could it be that some of the five’s own parents are helping him?
The fantasy adventure that began with the New York Times and Indie bestseller Map of Flamescontinues as the five join the fight against the oppression of supernaturals in Estero, face off against an unexpected enemy, and undertake a new mission that will put all of their abilities—and their loyalties—to the test.

Unique Skill Set
What I liked:
Invisible Spy is the second book in the Forgotten Five Series. This one is unique in focusing mainly on our supernatural catalog character and his relationships with his father or nonrelationship. Trapped on an airplane, hoping not to be discovered, unexpected information is revealed about President Fuerte.
This action-packed sequel does not hold back on the emotional punches as the forgotten five learn more about their parents and who is aligned with the president. The kids want to believe their parents all left for good reasons, but that gets harder to think about as they learn more about life in Estero. Hard choices are made about who to trust, who to stay with, and why things are playing out the way they are. If you enjoy spy novels that are great for this age group, buckle up for a great story.
