Good continuation of the first book "The Red Necklace," but now the main characters are more developed. Not a fan of the helpless girl, but her hero is pretty awesome so it makes up for it. The bad guy is pretty bad in this book too-a ceiling made of bones and has this fascination with what the guillotine leaves behind. A lot of the action and suspense comes from the time this story is set in-the French Revolution-so I can understand it but still think it's a bit much. (Do we really care if his ceiling is made of bones? NO) Weighing the great story with the intensity of the bad guy, I liked the book. Three stars.
