This was a really enchanting read. I see it a lot in the childrens/young adult section of my local book shop so I thought that I'd give it a go. The book and the writing are really lovely and flow very well. The characters are very believable and I absolutely loved Danes, Thankless and found Hester intriguing. Coriander is a wonderful heroine who always remembers her loyalties and who she is, which is fantastic to see. The villians, Maud and Arise Fell, intrigued me greatly - they were fantastically written and although their behaviour was so bad, I could've really believed that they really existed. The backdrop of London and the atmosphere that Gardner managed to create was very believable too - the grimy conditions of living weren't hidden. I'd definitely recommend this not only to children but for some teens too.
