This was pretty great. The actions of this were just as well paced as the first book, and so just as frustrating at times, but in a good way.

One thing I liked was that the magic was more obvious in this book, and the Upper Class society people were u

This is decent, but... I don't know, I'm never really blown away by Gideon Crew. I like the idea to a point, but it also feels like they've created a character with a known death that they're writing towards, but which they're also trying to delay th ...more

This was great, but I wish the Magic Users had used more magic. But then, the ending is one of the most ridiculous cliffhangers I've ever read.

Overall, this is a fantasy novel in a more urban setting, but with the main character being a kid from the

Neil Gaiman
“Each person who ever was or is or will be has a song. It isn't a song that anybody else wrote. It has its own melody, it has its own words. Very few people get to sing their song. Most of us fear that we cannot do it justice with our voices, or that our words are too foolish or too honest, or too odd. So people live their song instead.”
Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys

Neil Gaiman
“When writing a novel, that's pretty much entirely what life turns into: 'House burned down. Car stolen. Cat exploded. Did 1500 easy words, so all in all it was a pretty good day.”
