Book Description: 
Barclay and his friends must save an island city from the Legendary Beast of the Sea in this exciting second book in the Wilderlore series, perfect for fans of Nevermoor and How to Train Your Dragon.
Something is wrong at the Sea. The weeping tide, a carnivorous algae bloom, is eating up all the fish. Beasts are terrorizing the nearby Elsewheres. And Lochmordra, the Legendary Beast, is rising at random and swallowing ships whole.
Barclay’s teacher, the famous Guardian Keeper Runa Rasgar, has been summoned to investigate, and as her apprentice, Barclay gets to join too. But Runa’s nemesis has also been called to the Sea, and he’s brought apprentices of his own. When the not-so friendly competition between them grows fierce, it’s Barclay—the only one from the Elsewheres—who can’t seem to keep up.
The key to stopping Lochmordra lies in his mythical home, but as the flood of the weeping tide encroaches, time is running out to find it. If the rival groups can’t cast aside old grudges and learn to work together, soon the Sea will be destroyed completely. And all the while Barclay must ask himself: is there truly a place for him in the Wilderlands?
I didn't quite know what to expect from this book as I hadn't read the first in the series but there's enough information to make the story flow flawlessly so while you can read this story as a standalone and not feel like you're missing something, I totally recommend reading book 1 first. There's a plethora of characters besides our group of main characters that starts out together at the beginning. Our main characters are Lore Keepers who each carry a mark that contains a beast and each special powers called lores that aid them in fighting unruly, nasty and dangerous beast that try to harm the citizens of Elsewheres. The Keepers are their protectors but because they usually show up when monsters do,they're looked down upon by the humans of Elsewheres. This often makes their jobs harder and some apprentices feel rejected. While Barclay is trying to learn to control his lore and dealing with emotional issues of rejection and doubts brought on by this rejection, he must fight to help solve the emerging beast problem before things get worse. All our main characters have depth,personalities and struggles that pur fleshed out on the pages which make them feel real and you find yourself wanting to help,comfort, and root for them through there adventures. I really enjoyed this story, it is a unique plot with maybe a touch of Fantastic Beasts vibes and continous action packed adventure. This book is categorized as middle grade but I think it can be enjoyed by all age groups.
