I finally requested this book because more than 7 people recommended it to me - I figured it was worth the read, and it was. I fell in love with the Kvothe's world, and his adventures were exciting. I normally like fantasy, but I haven’t read anything good in a while – this book reminded me how much fun a new magical world can be. Unlike a Harry Potter book, there wasn’t a clear plot with a super-planned build up, but I sort of liked the casual, stroll-like way that the story was told.
Anyway, I can’t wait to read the sequel, and I highly recommend this book.
Miss Quinn, disguised as a chambermaid, goes undercover in Buckingham Palace to find who is stealing trinkets from one of the parlors. Little does she know that there are more troubles that she'll have to deal with, including the troublesome journalist Mr. Jones and a man who could just be her father. Mr. James Easton is back in the picture again, and he and the pipes he's working on won't make things any easier.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series - at least enough to request and read the second and the third. However, this one wasn't uber entrancing. I set it down and read a few books before I finished this one, and skipped around before I finished it. This book is good - entertaining, surprising, ect. - but not super special.
