In some ways, I found this book to be even better than the first. For one thing, there was more action. It kept me engaged, always wanting to know what would happen next. It made the book more intense and climactic. For another thing, Emery was also just as wonderful and quirky as ever, and his unspoken feelings for Ceony this time were adorably cute. I also enjoyed the insight into his mind, even if it was only for a brief section.

Also, I actually didn’t mind the way Ceony was constantly thinking about Emery and wondering whether he liked her or not, as some other reviews have mentioned, because I thought it was an accurate portrayal of a young girl’s mind. To us readers it was obvious that he liked her, and to us it was easy to say she should’ve been focusing on other things, but it’s different when you’re on the inside of your own mind in that kind of situation. Have we not all been there, especially when we were younger? Even when someone gives you a million signs that they like you, you still worry and doubt their feelings when they have yet to actually state what their feelings are. It’s also easier said than done to focus on more important things when you have feelings for someone but don’t know how they feel about you.

What I wasn’t so crazy about though was the way Ceony made one “Don’t go in there!” horror movie-worthy decision after the other. And her actions continually put Emery in the position of having to scold and discipline her which made me feel uncomfortable because of their almost-dating relationship.

That being said, I felt the positive balanced out the negative, the book still had a unique form of magic and a beautiful, quirky love interest, so I enjoyed it.
