Reviews
Readers will be swept up both by interesting magical elements, such as Fiona's communication with her familiar, a magpie named Paolo, and the more ordinary, recognizable details of the changes experienced by a group of teens on the cusp of adulthood. This appealing blend of realism and the paranormal and the evolution of each of the characters in their own rights is as satisfying as the final reckoning with the Housekeeper. . . A smartly plotted end to an emotionally engaging fantasy.
--Kirkus Reviews

Despite the fantastical backdrop, O'Donoghue's characters seem wholly real in their dialogue and in their personal stories; Roe in particular has a major victory when a national magazine genders them correctly. Buy to finish the series, and eagerly await what comes next from this author.
