My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another wonderful book in this series! I loved the first book so much, and wondered what direction the author would take next, and I was astounded with the magical scope of the story! Castle Glower holds so many secrets and magical enigmas, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the books.
In this book, Celie finds a mysterious orange egg that the Castle will let only her see. She hatches the egg, and cares for the newborn creature without letting anyone in the castle know about it. But her brother Bran, the Royal Wizard, finds Celie with her quickly-growing and mischievous pet, and the two have to find a way to protect the magical baby, and somehow protect the Castle from threats as well.
Adventure, and spying, and mysterious secret rooms, labyrinths, and passageways are all in abundance, but the best part of this particular story is the rich history of the Castle and how that history of magical artifacts, maps, and symbols comes into play with the plotting and scheming.
Celie is spunky and fun and intelligent. I love how all the people in the Castle really respect her judgement although she’s young, and even the maids will ask her advice, and the lords of the court accept her guidance.
This book ends on a cliffhanger, so I’m going to dive straight into the next book!
