When I saw this at the book store, I thought I had already read this one, but wasn't sure until I read a few chapters. I definitely have read it, but thoroughly enjoyed reading it again. Authors never cease to amaze me how they can pull out of their imaginations a totally new spin on why something is what it is, or was what it was. Boggles the mind sometimes. I do remember reading the 2nd book in this series (and might read that one again too), and hope Maguire plans on writing #3. I'd very much like to see where she is taking the overall plot.
