Characters: Well I thoroughly enjoyed this lot of characters. I thought all the characters were really realistic and they all had there flaws. the dialogue was awesome but I think If i had to choose one of the characters it would be Aunt Linda. I just love her enchanter powers. she’s an enchanter so she can enchant people to do things. If I were to choose a power I would totally choose this one! and I did find a few historical references!
What I liked: I really enjoyed Cinda’s magic system this was one that I just really enjoyed! The imagery was just so perfect and I would highly suggest this to be a movie! And the climax oh the climax was just plain glorious!
What I didn’t Like: I wish that this book would mention more about the neighbors on Jefferson street. Blaise, Iris, Mercedes, Nick Snowbeard…. Uh hello what happened to them how did they end up on Jefferson street I wanna know!!!Rating:
