So you all might not know, but I can't for the life of me read or watch embarrassing moments. They really just won't work. This book, however, has none of those unbearable moments! It was great!
Anyway, this book sparked my interest when I was going through the library the day before (yeah, I think so) we went on Thanksgiving vacation. I saw the cover and loved, so I picked it up and went on my way. I was not expecting all the things in side of this book.
The characters were wonderfully developed. All the characters captured you from the very beginning when they're introduced in the story. My favorite characters were Lucy (obviously) and Walter (who you will all meet later in the book).
The writing was superb. This book was set in the Victorian-era, so the language is everything that it would be back then. Because of this, some parts of the language isn't the greatest. It's not that horrible, but just telling you all. If you're sensitive to some types of speech, then you might not want to read this book. The iffy language disappears after the 1st chapter and after that it is spread across the book, only popping up once or twice in that one chapter, then 5 (maybe even 6) chapters later, there is another character saying that stuff.
The story was quite vivid and captured you when the first sentence is read. The characters, mystery and magic help move the story along. The ending is so wonderfully satisfying that you could just end there, but not every answer was answered in this book.
I loved reading the book. It's absolutely wonderful! I'm so glad this book is a trilogy and that all the books have been published. My rating is 5 stars!
