A Delightful Mess
Well I like this story very much but the priorities are mixed and messed up. I actually think the characters are kind of selfish and constantly repeat themselves. I mean the characters are selfish because Sophie and Tedros are both fighting over Agatha and Agatha is selfish because she isn't satisfied with what she has; in all honesty, I don't see why they can't compromise.
Then there is the divide between girls and boys, I have no argument against girl power but this is taking it a bit over board. Slavery, really? Plus, have the people of the land not considered the fact that they have to reproduce in order for the human race to survive?
However, despite the character short comings, I have really enjoyed the plot. There has so many tangles that I couldn't see where this was heading, couldn't make a good guess and that's why I liked it. There was so much happening that was difficult to keep track of the main objective (this making a complaint that the characters are bipolar).
Seeing how our "generous" author left us at a cliff hanger, there will be no doubt that we will be seeing more of Agatha, Sophie, Tedros and the School Master in another Fairy Tale mess.
