Edison’s Alley is the second book of the Accelerati trilogy by Shusterman and Elfman. The story picks up where Tesla’s Attic left off, with the continuing efforts of the main character Nick and his friends to keep Nikola Tesla’s long-hidden inventions out of the hands of the Accelerati (a secret society of scientists who aim to exploit the inventions for their own profit), while avoiding a global catastrophe brought about by the events of the first book.

 

 

It’s hard to go into much detail when reviewing Edison’s Alley, because there are so many characters and so much happening that avoiding spoilers gets to be very difficult.  There are many twists and turns throughout the plot, and the ending is a good set up to the concluding volume of the series, Hawking’s Hallway.

I gave this book four stars on Goodreads – I enjoyed reading it, but I felt like it was maybe a little to predictable for a 5-star rating.
