Since I read this book pretty much in one sitting, it didn't make a particularly large impression on me. If it were any other book it could not have pulled off the negative chapter numbers trick, but since absurdity is one of this series' primary charms it worked. The character Anastasia (vague enough not to require a spoiler tag, right?) struck me as cliche and boring. (view spoiler) return would have been more dramatic if I'd remembered who he was (not the book's fault, as it has been some time since I read this series). I will certainly be seeing this series through to the end - having had so many near-misses, obfuscations, and so on, the Secret had better be good. I'm more expecting it to be something like the "secret ingredient" of Kung Fu Panda than any arcane magic, but we shall see.
