Number 3 out of my top four. One being, "Pride & Prejudice", two being "I am Number 4", three, "The Power of Six" & four "The Rise of Nine".
Book one. Same author & narrator.
Listen to this audiobook
Tic and Mistress Jane allied, was surprising and memorable in many scenes. You have to read this. Fascinating, surprising and enjoyable.
Narrator was great and the best moments were with Gwen's best friend, Leslie. Gwen's ghost friend James was annoying but funny in his arrogance.
All the characters are uniquely eccentric which makes them charming, and at times, hilarious. I'm going to be reading the next book presently.
The gargoyle is just adorable as he persists in following Gwen everywhere. Gwen's reactions to Gideon and all the time traveling is funny at times and this story had me riveted to the very end.
I have always been interested in debate and the intricacies of argumentation. If you too wish that discernment of political issues was desirability then get this book.
The transcendentalist had a lasting impact on America but in many ways those men where mistaken when it came to God. Some of their ideas like public education and building on what is already known and discussion and experimentation are things I myself have agreed with. This course made me think and for that I'm grateful.
Henry gets into so much trouble since he is impulsive. It's all anyone can do to keep saving Henry from all the trouble he gets into. He is a sweet boy but he needs lots of supervision.
The narrator does a great job with the characters and the story is interesting. I love "the flames", they are so mysterious and magical that you can't help being fascinated by them.
Worth the read. The ending is sad yes, but also hopeful. Gwen is young clueless magician who acts on instinct rather than knowledge most of the time. His anger gets him into plenty of trouble in this story but Gwen learns from his mistakes.
Lev is such a confused boy and this story show the event that truly breaks his heart. You don't turn your back on those in need without causing deep wounds that can lead to terrible consequences.
