The second book in the irresistible trilogy of four friends who find themselves caught up in the dangerous quest to save their town when the wicked creatures from their card game come to life.
In THE RISE OF THE BLACK WOLF Max and his fellow Grey Griffins, Ernie, Harley, and Natalia, set off on another extraordinary adventure - traveling to Scotland to visit Max's dad for the winter holidays. It doesn't take long before strange things start to happen to the four kids while they explore Mr. Sumner's ancient castle.
Once again, the Grey Griffins must do battle with the forces of evil - Fireball Pixes, Werewolves, and Morgan the Black Witch. But when Max's dad disappears, it's up to the Grey Griffins to rescue him, with the help of Knights of Templar!

Grade 5–8—In The Revenge of the Shadow King (Scholastic, 2005), the Grey Griffins had to work together to save their hometown, Avalon, and the rest of the world from certain annihilation at the hands of Morgan Le Fey. This time, the four friends travel to Scotland where they...have to save the world from certain annihilation at the hands of Morgan Le Fey. Narratives that would be fun with groups of friends in role-playing games come across here as trite and contrived. The surfeit of strung-together clichés and hyperbole stifles the story so much that it becomes practically unreadable.—Farida S. Dowler, Mercer Island Library, WA
