This book is probably the best one yet, in the series! I had to take off one star, though, because Madame Lulu was you-know-what by the you-know-who's. COUGH-eaten-COUGH-COUGH-by-the-lions-COUGH-COUGH-COUGH. (that was Mr. Poe. Somehow he got a hold of my computer.) *sigh* This book is a little darker and heavier than the last few, I have to admit. They're all kind of like that, though. Overall, love the books, they're great, love you, Lemony. Keep up the good work, L.
