4 gnomes and a gnome hat out of 5 gnomes
This was a really fun sequel. I’m growing to really like all of these characters. There are tons of complications in this book and you get a better look at the adaptor community. There is a lot of problems all brought on when Billy's sister has a simian related problem.
I thought the love triangle was taken care of in the last book but it’s still here for a little bit in this book. She has some quite intriguing guys to choose from and when the book ended I was happy with what choice it looks like she made.
I loved getting to meet more of Ciel’s family. Her family has a plethora of personalities and their interactions are always interesting. Her brothers James and Brian were a good addition and I hope they’re in future books.
Besides Ciel, my favorite character is Billy. He’s a troublemaker but also a charmer. He and Ciel have a wicked chemistry when they’re together. Let's just say I'm really rooting for these two.
The last part of the book filled with plenty of twists and turns. I love the surprise of who the bad guys are and why they are doing/did what they did. It’s also great that the book ends on a really funny note. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to Ciel next.
