As a second in a series, it seems the plot arc (Jem & Hal’s father’s death) will be unsolved until the series’ end. It was well written in a magical twist of a steam punk era.
The dialogue and vocabulary seem to be consistent with this period.
It was a rather quick mystery adventure to solve the curse and unravels lies or deceit.
The characters have unique personalities, consistent yet expected.
I enjoyed the book and how Hal’s partial blindness will inevitably have a key role in solving the ultimate mystery does pique my interest, I’ve no desire to pick up The Rowanwood Curse nor follow the brothers.
Personally, I seek books that fulfill mysteries and progress to deeper layers.
Richard Nicholls has a strong voice who is easy and enjoyable to follow.
I would recommend this to others who want a touch of magical mystery with likable characters who have a strong sense of morals and commitments.
