it was ok
Read in February, 2012

I'm a huge fan of Sorcery & Cecelia, etc, and this book is set in the same world (with appearances by Thomas and Kate). But to me, it didn't feel like the same world. There are magical beings in this world, which there was no hint of in the trilogy with Patricia Wrede. They didn't seem to fit. Also, since the book is written for a much younger audience, it is a simpler story, and doesn't have much in the way of character development. I think someone reading it without having read the Kate and Cecelia books would enjoy it much more. (And, as a side note, Thomas didn't seem like Thomas to me. Perhaps it was that we were seeing him from such a different perspective.)
