The Explorers: The Door in the Alley

I loved the way this book started out - quirky chapter titles, a quirky character, and asides to the reader.  The problem was that the quirkiness wasn't consistent all the way through.  The book starts with Sebastian coming upon a mysterious door in an alley and discovering the Explorer's Society.  He soon begins to "work" for them.  Meanwhile, there is Evie, an orphan who finds herself in a dangerous situation and discovers that her grandfather is alive.  

At that point the two begin to look for a group of 5 explorer's, including Evie's grandfather, and a mysterious key.  There was some good action and a bit of mystery but...  the book ended with a cliffhanger (and the cliffhanger taunted about cliffhangers).  I think once more of the books are out the series might catch on but it wasn't my favorite.
