Rosemary and Peter have returned in this stand alone sequel to THE UNWRITTEN GIRL.

It's a few years later, and Rosemary and Peter are best friends and virtually inseparable. Almost. When Peter tries to move things beyond friendship, Rosemary gets scared and runs away. Alone and feeling vulnerable, a vision from Peter's past is able to convince him that he doesn't belong in this world. Rosemary alone can return him to his true home, and help him find his real place. Before she has a chance to decide if she's ready to step beyond their friendship, Peter has disappeared into the mist.

Rosemary must, once again, travel to a strange world. A world full of unbelievable obstacles and extremely dangerous inhabitants. Only Rosemary can see them for who they are, and that makes them like her even less. Not only must she convince Peter that he's in the wrong place, and that she needs him (which involves figuring out her true feelings for him), she'll have to do it all in a very short period of time. Plus, she'll have to sneak in, since she's been banished and faces death if she's caught.

James Bow is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors. While part of me misses the time with Rosemary and Peter between the two books, it's really just because I like the characters so very much! The jump in time is done so well that you, as the reader, don't really question it. And the characters themselves are precisely where I would have imagined them a few years later. Okay, maybe not "precisely," what with the crazy land-in-the-mist thing.

I'm going to stop rambling and just tell you that this is a really, really good book. It's part adventure, part fantasy, part love story (without being too mushy), and you should definitely read it!
