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

Pro: This story combines the Harry Potter story with the Bluebeard legend. Unlike the legend, Agatha takes care of Bluebeard herself--she has no need to wait for outside help to arrive.

Con: Agatha is something of a Mary Sue; she has no difficulty at anything she does. It's all so easy for her, you wonder why the other girls were killed so easily.
