Return of the Indian: 12/09/07
The Return of the Indian is the second of the Indian in the Cupboard series. After a year of keeping the cupboard locked, Omri decides to see Little Bear again.
When Omri brings Little Bear back to life he learns first hand the brutality of war. In an effort to help Little Bear win the war, Omri and his friends interfere first by sending weapons back and then by going back themselves.
See, it's not the cupboard that's magic, it's actually the key. But what and who can go back isn't exactly explained in this sequel. Perhaps later books dig deeper in the magic behind the key.
I enjoyed the darker themes of The Return of the Indian but I still found Omri a rather dull lead character.
