it was ok
bookshelves: mysteries, historical-fiction
Read from March 19 to 29, 2010

A sequel to The Meaning of Night, this book was fairly predictible. I knew right off who the main character was, who her mysterious guardians were, and had a feeling about how this would end. I did prefer Esperanza's narration in this book over Edward's narration in The Meaning of Night. Esperanza was much more of a likeable character than Edward.

Spoiler & opinion: Frankly, if the author didn't want to tip off his readers, he should have written his Edward character to have a little more creativity. That character loves the initials E.G.: Edward Glyver, Edward Glapthorn, Edwin Gorst, I'm pretty sure Dr. Edmund Grendon, and he named his daughter Esperanza Gorst. The only time Edward uses an entirely different pseudonym is when he is his daughter's tutor, and I still figured out it was Edward.
