There are three books in this series: Itch: The Explosive Adventures of an Element Hunter, Itch Rocks and Itchcraft. This reviews is about the second book in the series, and whilst you do not need to read the first book in order to work out what is happening, it is worth starting your reading at the beginning of the series. 119 more words
