Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro:  If you read the previous two installments, this is a fun story, and it's interesting to get more details on Bel's world. The scene at the end where Bel faces down her mother is very satisfying.

Con: But if you didn't read the previous two installments, this story just isn't going to work.

  1. These stories are strange... they're not exactly sequels because they overlap so much. It's a lot like the Atopia Chronicles which I read earlier in the year...
