School Library Journal Starred Review
Gr 7 Up Genie Lo is settling into her powers as the Ruyi Jingu Bang, trying to be an effective Great Divine Guardian of California, and balancing it all with school, family, and friends. Her plans for college always seemed set in stone, but a health scare with her mom puts her family's precarious financial situation in stark relief. The uncertainty causes rifts in her romantic relationship with her boyfriend Quentin (who is the Monkey King Sun Wukong). Despite the tension, they still have to work together because a ball of demonic qi is tearing through the planes of existence and the Jade Emperor is nowhere to be found. When Genie takes a side in the battle for the next King of Heaven, she, Quentin, Guanyin, and even Erlan Shang are on a new adventure to save humanity. The politics of the gods, criticism of Silicon Valley VC funding, college parties, and the uncertainty of the future on this plane of existence (plus all the others) are all explored with Genie's hilarious and biting voiceespecially when she's at her most vulnerable. VERDICT Readers who have been waiting for more Genie will not be disappointed. A worthy sequel. Jennifer Rothschild, Arlington County Public Libraries, VA

The fate of the heavens is at stake in this hilarious and highly-anticipated sequel to the The Epic Crush of Genie Lo, from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rise of Kyoshi Genie Lo thought she was busy last year, juggling her academic career with protecting the Bay Area from demons. But now, as the Heaven-appointed Guardian of California, she's responsible for the well-being of all yaoguai and spirits on Earth. Even the ones who interrupt her long-weekend visit to a prestigious college, bearing terrible news about a cosmos-threatening force of destruction in a nearby alternate dimension. The goddess Guanyin and Genie's boyfriend, Quentin Sun Wukong, do their best to help, but it's really the Jade Emperor who's supposed to handle crises of this magnitude. Unfortunately for Genie and the rest of existence, he's gone AWOL. Fed up with the Jade Emperor's negligence, Genie spots an opportunity to change the system for the better by undertaking a quest that spans multiple planes of reality along with an adventuring party of quarrelsome Chinese gods. But when faced with true danger, Genie and her friends realize that what will save the universe this time isn't strength, but sacrifice.
