really liked it
Read in July, 2012

Beautiful language and compelling characters, of course. The outcome I was sure was coming since the end of Son of a Witch was cleverly foiled -- Maguire outsmarted me, to my delight.

No spoilers, but I was disappointed at the end. It's not that I didn't think the outcome justified by the characters, but I got so frustrated with the characters and their flawless ability to thwart their own happiness.

Still, it satisfies a lot of the desire for completion one feels after four novels, and dovetails nicely with Baum's Return to Oz.
