Kids say (3 ):

Consistent with the rest of the series, creatures and characters plucked from a number of mythologies and historical eras abound -- so much so that it's hard to keep them straight. But for the most part, these creatures fascinate and send chills down the spine when they're sent to battle the twins and Perenelle. Also, Palamedes isn't nearly as charming and ruthless a protector as Scatty, who only makes a brief appearance (and a disappointing disappearance).

What does work just as well in this book is the pacing of the action -- Scott always opens with a good chase and closes with an against-all-odds escape, and everything takes place in just a couple of days. Plus, in keeping with the title THE SORCERESS, we finally get to see more of Perenelle's powers, and for girls who like fantasy reads, this story again features powerful female characters.
