There’s trouble brewing at StregaSchloss!

The Flooze
In another fabulous display of rampant imagination, Ms. Gliori once again threatens the lives of the Strega-Borgia clan. She can't seem to leave these poor people in peace.

An impending inheritance, a vengeful relative, and a determined demon all come together to make the family's life a malestrom of malevolence. In the meantime, we learn some tidbits about the family's ancestry, discover the provenance of that large diamond in the front hall, and most intriguing of all, we get a glimpse into who...more

This was a fun book to read. I found myself living Titus even more than I did in the other books and I even found myself loving tarantella the spider and normally I hate spiders. The characters developed so much more in this book than the first two. There was great adventures that the whole Strega Borgia family had. I defiantly recommend this book to everyone.
Apr 28, 2009 Liz rated it 3 of 5 stars  ·  review of another edition Recommends it for: anyone who's a fan of modern-day, blatantly unrealistic witchcraft
Personally, three and a half stars. Didn't like the history flashbacks so much, but the present-day gadgets were cool! It goes a little deeper and darker than the previous two books, and it's less funny.
Compared to the first two books, I thought this one was much better. It kept my attention and I only put it down to sleep and eat. lol I hope this means that the series will keep getting better and better! :)
this book was so so so good!!! it was super funny and really cooly magical...i hope you know what i mean.Debi Gliori did a really great job on this book...cant wait to read the whole series!!!
Fun and fluffy. Lots of bathroom humor. Gliori isn't my favorite wordsmith, but her books are good for a nice break.
