Description from the publisher:
The sequel to Fairy Metal Thunder.

With their enchanted instruments charming the crowds, the Assorted Zebras attract interest from record producers, and soon they’re off to cut their first album and music video. Jason and his friends don’t know they’ve just become pawns in a sinister plot by a cabal of evil fairies...

Meanwhile, Aoide and her band pursue a new strategy for regaining their stolen instruments, one that will take them into the most haunted region in Faerie

Albert (my son) and I have continued this series as a read-aloud in the car on our way to and from work.

We're back with The Assorted Zebras, Jason, Mitch, Erin, and 'Dred.  This second book in the series picks up right where FAIRY METAL THUNDER left off.  The Zebras have been offered a record contract!  Once the contracts are all signed, they’ll be going to Ireland and creating a video.  What kind of trouble could they get into doing that, right?

We have continued to love this series.  Both of us were laughing out loud throughout this.  This series has, so far, been very good.  Mr. Bryan writes terrifically detailed descriptions that bring this fantastic world alive.

A note for the author after reading chapter 1:  I WANT A SABER-TOOTHED SWAMP DUCK!
2nd note:  Roger should have been named Kenny!.

Grammar/editing:  ungraded – since I was listening instead of reading, I don't know, but Albert said it was well done.
