Everville: The City of Worms by Roy Huff is the second in the Everville Series. It really does not stand on its own, so read the books in order.
I really missed Owen Sage’s first person narrative in this sequel. This is because, even though the story involves Owen, there is a lot happening without him in the other worlds, especially in Everville and in the City of Worms. There is s quest for the source that maintains the balance between the worlds (whoever owns it will have great power), battles with Giants, Ubaloo, Fron, and other creatures, and clues to find and figure out. As in the first book, the theme is the struggle between good and evil, and the corruption of power. Written for the YA audience, there is enough depth as a light fantasy for adults. Entertaining.
