|General Note:||Sequel to: Winterborne Home for vengeance and valor.|
|Summary, etc.:||"April thought she had her happy ending. After all, she has her new house and new friends and new guardian. But she also has a very big new secret. The kids of Winterborne House are the only ones who know that Gabriel Winterborne--famous billionaire and terrible cook--is really a sword-wielding vigilante. What they don't know is that he's not the only one. When a masked figure breaks in, looking for something--or someone--it's clear that Gabriel has met his match, and now no one is safe. April and her friends will have to solve a decades-old mystery in order to hang on to the most important thing in the world: each other."--|

It's been weeks since their caretakers departed the Winterborne mansion, leaving orphans April, Sadie, Violet, Colin, and Tim in the hands of Gabriel Winterborne, the reclusive, long-believed-dead millionaire who owns the estate that houses their school. Gabriel secretly is The Sentinel, a Batman-like vigilante superhero, andânaturallyâis not the most present in his role as guardian. The kids would be content to scrape by on their own, but a social worker is nosing around just when Gabriel suddenly goes missing. April leads the charge to track Gabriel down, but in the process, the mysteries deepen about Gabriel as well as about April's own familyâa question about her life she'd long given up on finding an answer for. April's first-person narrative is particularly strong when she explores her fears of abandonment. But Carter doesn't skimp on the action, packing her plot with plenty of twists, propulsive chases, unsettling villains, secret passageways, and some very real danger. Knowledge of the first book (Winterborne Home for Vengeance and Valor, 2020) is important, but kids enamored by espionage, secret identities, and superhero stories will get a kick out of this nevertheless.
