it was amazing
Read from June 19 to 27, 2012

Although I didn't particularly like all the riddles and what a mess the characters got themselves into, it wouldn't be a story without that mess. The action scenes were still well-thought out and this book kept the mystery and intrigue that I was so fond of in the first book. I almost wish this book had preceded the first, however, especially since we learn a lot more about the hangman's daughter in this tale. I loved the character of Benedikta and her story had an amazing background. Speaking of backgrounds, that's another thing I loved about these books--Potzsch includes his background of the novel in a way that is neither boring nor seemingly irrelevant. If you loved the first novel, you'll be sure to find yourself swept up by this one as well. And be sure to read the notes at the end!
