did not like it
bookshelves: fantasy
Read in January, 2006

This was a good novel but I didn't really enjoy it. The characters are pretty good, except William, I didn't like his character, too milktoast. It's a continuing story of a brother and sister who become the Protectors of Albion (England) when their grandfather dies. They're kinda thrown into the whole thing and have to learn magic and talk to ghosts and save the world.

I liked the whole part about how the ghosts of famous people helped the duo. But I don't really enjoy the Victorian Age very much, and I think that was the major turn off for me. The writing was good, the story was interesting, but I just don't like reading about manners and protocol. I would read another one if it took place in another time.
