I'm torn regarding this book -- on one hand, this ended up being a pretty delightful little story. A tale of mystery, intrigue, suspense, humor, and drama. What is the secret of Castle Cant? What has Lucy gotten herself into by allying with the imprisoned Arden Guts? ON THE OTHER HAND: The author is currently imprisoned for Child Pornography for six years (as of July 2010) and wonder if supporting his work is necessarily a good idea. Should a work be judged on it's literary merits alone, or should the personal life of the author be taken into account? Is this a case like the suggested pedophilia of Lewis Carroll and this work was meant to draw young people to him? Or is he just a clever and gifted children's author, with a dark side unrelated to his work?
