Page 194 - Look, if you are going to have a war as a centerpiece of your story, then you'd darn well explain WHY there is a war. Gosh, this is boring.

I am having trouble with this one, just not hooking me into the story and, frankly, after two weeks, I'm bored with it. NOTHING is happening. Not sure whether to give up or keep pushing. I'm surprised how little I am enjoying it.

An average house cost @$5000 in 1901. 15000 pounds in 1901 was a fortune.
And no woman wore a sun dress, pants or a short skirt. Research people!

Hold on. One year of magical school is 15000 British pounds which in 1901 is the equivalent of $75000.

Anachronisms! Careless writing? Lack of knowledge?

I really want to love this one because the story sounds good, but the writing isn't good. It is far too telling and not enough showing and too descriptive, the dialogue doesn't flow as it is constantly interrupted to describe something or someone. It is tough reading.

Still good. I love that part of this is based on history.

I don't know where this story is going to end up, but so far, I'm enjoying the journey

Finally, a mention of someone named Romeo. This book is pointless and brings nothing new to the story. Nothing.

Oh my goodness, what a bore. I should self-enforce the fifty page rule. I should, no, I must. Would save me from time-wasting not much good books. 253 pages in and still no viable sign of the plot. Two Hundred and Fifty Three. UGH!

Total craptastic ending. Should have not expected better. Well, then, two more authors to never read again.

Idiotic. Burning your acceptance letter doesn't cancel your acceptance. Who wrote this crap?

And Lillia, you are every bit the spoiled self-centered selfish, thoughtless rich girl and I hate you, too.

And I mentioned this in the first book, but NO school would let a student in the swimming pool alone. Could. Not Happen. They would have lawsuits out the wazoo for doing that. It's ridiculous and since it is a big part of this plot, it matters.

Also, I liked Mary and felt sorry for her, but now I hate her.

Hmmm. Something tells me that this final book is going to change my thoughts about this whole series. Not very happy with the direction this is taking and there are editing errors. Do publishers actually no longer hire editors? DO they think the existence of spell check made them obsolete?

One more. How did he get two years older than she is? How could be possibly be nineteen when it is seventeen years later? Anyone edit this thing? Check it for errors of continuity?

It is almost the final page of this book and this happens: seventeen years later so Luce would, I imagine, be seventeen, since she was born seventeen years ago, BUT she is missing the locket she got for her eighteenth birthday and there is a whole paragraph about it. Inexcusable.

Aaaaaand Luce once again prices she had neither grown or learned as her as actions get people killed. Am I supposed to like her?

egregious error. Avalon? Avignon? sheesh. How can you expect to involve me when you cannot even keep the place of a major plot point straight?

Oh yes, Luce remember what you learned from all your pasts, that you can learn from your past. How profound. *laughing hilariously*

*snorts* Luce learned from all her announcer travel that she always recognized Daniel. Ok, so still, what is the basis of this epic love? We'll just see if you can sctually make me believe there is any foundation for it.
