In typical Brian fashion the story is a series of unexpected twists and turns before finally ending...only to leave you with more questions.

As much as I have absolutely loved this series, I'm afraid that its changing. The first books were about academics, fashion, and the wonder and mystery behind the fabulous Billings Girls. But now, a prequel featuring "A Book of Spells"? This isn't Harry Potter or any of the fantasy mythologically-based books that I've also been reading! It better not turn into something all about magic and other supernatural elements. What happened to the glamour, to the mystery? I miss that. Kate Brian, I hope you don't disappoint with the last book of one of my favorite series.

I guess what I'm saying is that this book isn't the best book written by Brian but it definitely was gripping. I am not a huge fan that she decided to throw in witchcraft since the series has gone from a murder-mystery thriller to a sci-fi/fantasy, but I am still interested in reading the conclusion to the series, "Vengeance".
