"We have resources," said Cyril Lanfair.
Lutrineas groaned. "My sister has assassins, or did you forget that already? She has librarians. Police officers. Meter maids. Army captains. Agents provocateurs." Something flashed outside the window, followed a moment later by a sound like something igniting. "Like that one, probably."

There was way too much story for this book. That isn't to say that I didn't like it, because I did. I liked it very much. I had fun with it. But there was so much going on, so much to do in the book's universe, that it couldn't be accomplished in the space and format allotted.

I like what the book and the author tried to do. I'll read the sequel I'm assuming will exist. But I really, really hope the next book is tighter.

This is actually one of the best fantasy novels I have read in a long time. Schwartz steps away from the trite and overdone supposedly fantasy genre vampire and werewolf supernatural novels to create a world of magic where the characters are both believable and fantastical. Having read a good many supernatural thrillers I can tell you that Joy Wilson has become one of my favorite supernatural detectives.

While there were some issues with formatting this is simply the nature of the Kindle translation itself and it does not detract from the plot or the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone aged 15 and up. Specifically I would say if you liked Harry Potter, or the Worst Witch series as a child and adolescent you will like this book.… (mais)
