57:120 Hollow Earth: Bone Quill by John Barrowman & Carole E. Barrowman

The second book in the Hollow Earth trilogy by John & Carole E. Barrowman.  Matt and Em are just learning more and more about their powers, their family history, their father, and Book of Beasts that was created to keep the most dangerous creatures of myth and legend away from the rest of the world.  At the same time, they are worried sick and trying to find any trace of where there mother has disappeared to.  Clues start to point that she has ended up in the past and by accident, the twins end up there as well.  The reunion ends with their realizing that there are things even further in the past that need to be settled to keep the world safe but in a misguided effort to make things right, Matt manages to unbind his father from the painting his mother and grandmother put him into when the twins were young.  Unfortunately, Matt does not understand just how dangerous and psychotic his father is until he is released from the painting in the past and starts doing absolutely anything to be able to open Hollow Earth....

Usually the second book takes a bit of a nosedive in a trilogy but this one kept up the same pace and moved the story along very nicely.  I'm really glad I already had the last book in the series in the wings waiting.
