it was amazing

Really, Juliette Marillier can almost do no wrong in my eyes about now. This companion to Wildwood Dancing lived up to my every expectation and yet is a completely different book from the first one. While Wildwood Dancing takes place in the wildwoods of Transylvania with mystical creatures and magical enchantments; this one is set in the colorful and bustling city of Istanbul and has adventure, intrigue, betrayal, and a high seas chase.
The story is centered around the second youngest daughter Paula who is now 17 and traveling on a business trip with her father in an attempt to acquire an ancient artifact. She finds herself faced with solving a difficult puzzle set her by the folk of the other realm, and chosing between a dashing pirate and her faithfull bodyguard (although there really was no competition here in my mind.)
I really hope there are more books in this series. I sensed the distinct posibility here. Stela is begging to have her adventure and things were left hanging with Tati and her own quest. How about 5 books, one for each sister perhaps??
