** spoiler alert ** SPOILER! SPOILER! SPOILER!

Defintely one of my favorite books. It took me forever to read, it's, like, 800 pages, but when I did it was awesome. I love how Gemma's not perfect--she talks to Circe, and loves the power, and wounds people just as much as she loves them. I think she could do another book about Gemma when she's done with university and everything. You know, like a couple years later. The ending was really good, but a little indefinite as to what may happen in the realms. Libba answered a lot of questions aobut it on her blog, though. Kartik. So sad! About a few pages before it happened, I knew it was going to happen. Sigh. And then Felictiy and Pippa. Didn't see that one coming at all, but I like how Felicity goes to France to meet more "people like her" or she said me. Pippa, Fee, and Ann fool around a ton in the realms--I wish Ann would be more serious about it. About Ann. I love how she goes and joins the theater. Everyone goes to where they go (Father goes to India, Ann to theater, Fee to France, Tom goes to that hospital thing, I think, and Pip just dies).

Anyway, makes it in my top five favorite books.
