really liked it
Read in December, 2008

I really enjoyed this book; it wasn't perfect or an all time favorite, but it was still a pretty great read.

1. Romantic. So, the romance was predictable, but it was still very fun to read. Lochinvar was suitably noble and passionate. :D
2. The conflict wasn't too unique - someone gets kidnapped, girls try to save kidnapee and uncover larger more serious situation. However, the magic, era, and setting pulled it off successfully and made it interesting.

1. Persy would get very annoying with her constant self-criticism. I understand and pity her low self-esteem, but her talking about it all of the time was frustrating.
2. Persy and Pen had a strange relationship with their brother. Like, they were usually joking, I think, but they would mock him and call him an idiot for no reason at all. I think he was a pretty great little guy, and sometimes they seemed to pick on him more than necessary.

Overall, although I have some complaints, I really liked this book. It's the kind of book I'd like to own so I could have a reread once in awhile.

*Also, it was very clean. The romance was all good, and the swearing was very minor - just a few D*** and H***.

Cecelia Rae Persephone was , and is, my favorite character! Maybe it's because I have two younger sisters who are constantly calling me fat & ugly, but I can really relate to her. The ending is, in my humble opinion, spectacular. She really is a great fictional role model for all self-concious girls out there. I definitely give this book two thumbs up!
