Clear rating

This trilogy is a great historical romance set in the Victorian era. As a group of girls grow closer to adulthood, they bond over shared escapes to a magical realm that lies somewhere between the boundaries of life and death. In this realm, the girls can make their own personal dreams come true.

Book 1 is the weakest of the trilogy and takes a bit of patience to fully integrate into the author's world, but once you are there, the ride is a fun one. Books 2 and 3 earn a higher rating from me.

Elaine Oh yay, I'm pretty relieved to hear that it gets better.

Stacia (the 2010 club) I wrote this review well over two years ago. I don't know if I trust my own opinion from that long ago.

Elaine Hmm. Well, I do have faith in Libba Bray, but I'll bear that in mind.
