it was ok
Read in August, 2010

(warning: this book maybe the second in the series but does not focus on the characters of the first. i liked that aspect.)

i picked this book up because i enjoyed (surprising, because I'm not a huge fan of fantasy)the first book she wrote in this series, which was Howls Moving Castle. Loved that but Castle in the Air was LAME. Only recommend if you enjoy romance.

I still really love the way this author writes. on par with the first one in the manner that she always comes full circle; cleverly bringing the story completely together in the end.

But, this story sucked. last thing i want to read is about an idiot who falls in love at first sight, decides to be married on second sight, then spends the rest of the dang book moping while he's searching for his princess who's been kidnapped by some prissy, magical beast with an attitude of a two year old. and only magic can save the day.(rolling eyes)

oh, i did really loved how the author worked the characters from the first book in there. i can't help my fondness for them. and i really loved the character of the Princess. she was awesome. she's really an intelligent women, with the exception of that one flaw of falling for an idiot. don't know why, she is way, way smarter than that.
