US Kirkus Review » Ben, Zara, Sam and Marcia return with six of their Professor friends in this sequel to 7 Professors of the Far North (2005). This time, they are helping Amy McAirdrie build an electric plane when they draw the notice of a secret, international, paramilitary organization. The Leader of Noctarma believes the kids and Professors have uncovered the long-lost secret of anti-gravity. They haven't; but once our heroes hear of it, they know they must keep it from the clutches of villains like Noctarma. The race is on to find the real silver turtle. The kids succeed with a little adult help, and the world is safe again. Unfortunately, there's no depth to the characters here. The children, save details of their pasts, are interchangeable as are the Professors. However, the action is swift, and the James Bondian gadgets abound. If spy adventure readers don't mind a little coincidence-driven plot, they will be in heaven. Fans of the first will definitely want this one, and will hope for future escapades. (Fiction. 9-12) (Kirkus Reviews)
