I loved this story. Sisters and magic in a very real British setting. My only disappointment -- the author has mentioned an upcoming sequel, but I couldn't find any sign of it yet. Can't wait!

I love this series. Peter, Beverly, Nightingale, Molly -- all the characters. Also, if you like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, you'll laugh here.

I liked this book very much. A new slant on fantasy for me, set in Asia. The heroine was an engaging character. Plenty of action, jeopardy and magic. Only disappointment, finding that the sequel won't be out for months!
