I bought Tournament of Ruses first, then realized it was the sequel to this one, so put it aside, bought this one and started at the beginning. In hindsight, I kind of wish I'd read the sequel first -- I think it would have been just a little more in ...more

I think the series is moving from YA to more grown up, and that is a nice thing. The characters are experiencing life and getting older, thus their conflicts are getting more serious. Well, it's hard to be "more serious" than the conflicts in Ithaka ...more

I didn't love this one quite as much as the first one, but very close. It should be a 4.5. I preordered this thing, that's how much I wanted to read it (I never preorder things!)

If you go look at my reviews, you'll see how rarely I give a book 5 stars. I love this story, and I love the one after, and I'm so very, very sad that I now have to wait to read the next one.

Beautiful world-building, fantastic characters, excellent

Maids of Misfortune by M. Louisa Locke

I would really say 3.5 or maybe even 3.75 stars for this. It's good for what it is -- which is a sort of cozy mystery, set in San Francisco in the late 1800s. You'll need to set aside disbelief for a bit, because the main character dresses up as a cl ...more

A Rational Arrangement by L. Rowyn
Rate this book
Clear rating
Unusual, intriguing and entertaining. I really liked this story. It was just odd enough to delight me. It's not for children: there's nothing YA about it. I could see the love triangle being set up a mile away, but wasn't sure how it would resolve. A ...more

This is the only book I ever quit halfway through. I'm giving it two stars despite quitting it because there is some nifty world building, and because the characters are interesting. I found myself thinking about it even after deciding to not finish ...more
