Tu To To from Baulne-en-Brie, France
I didn't like this monograph as much as the first in the series, but enough to read the other two in the set. I can't compare it to other series by Tamora Prick as I've only read this one and Wild Magic. My favourite character has to be the hydra, though Mauna also strikes a chord with me. I think my hot water with the monograph is it was too smooth, too nicely rounded how business worked out in the end. I like my fibs to be a little confused and unpredictable.

Gather it for book club. Learned a lot about Sudan and hard new. Had difficulty keeping track. Of the beats of each youngster. A good gather!
