Reviews
Review
While I agree that this is Great Novel, it definitely would have benefitted from a fairly severe editing down in size. Several parts of the story seemed to, unnecessarily, go on forever: Theo making his way out of the museum, Theo and Boris, living their stoner life in Las Vegas, Theo, sick in the hotel in Amsterdam, to name a few.

When a book gets bogged down in detail and repetition, the flow of the story can become hard to follow. This novel is 771 pages. I'm thinking 625-650 would have been just about right.  Check Library Catalog

This is such a terrific series. Book 2 read in a day and I am already eagerly awaiting the next.

Great characters and all comparisons made to Tamora Pierce, Sherwood Smith and the like are apt. Brilliant writing.  Check Library Catalog
