This book started off wonderfully. The chemistry between Victoria and Elliot was definately the main strength of the story. The premise of sending a stuffy 11 year old from 1890 to live with a kid from 1966 worked out beautifully. Unfortunately that's about the only thing about this book that truly works. Because soon afterwards Maxwell shoots himself in the foot and splits up the two so they can go off to have their own adventures thru the "Faerie Door," on some ridiculously dangerous mission, that only two eleven year olds can accomplish with a pair of rings on both their fingers. WTF?! Everything really kind of falls apart after that. Victoria and Elliot literally have no idea what they're doing. They're simply thrust thru two seperate gates by the Faeri Queen and told they must retrieve something while fending off mortal danger in order to save all the interwoven worlds. That's about it. They're not given any other information other than that. Could there possibly be a lamer and more deficient plot than this? This book had alot of potential but it took a horrible turn for the worse.
