As always, I adore Kitty’s character. She is so plucky and smart. I have grown to love and cherish her over these last four books, and feel like she is a trusted friend. (How did I ever survive without her in my life before this? Well, I had Nancy Drew, but Kitty is so much better!)
I wasn’t so sure about Andrew in the beginning. Who is this guy? How dare he even LOOK at my beloved Kitty with that smirk in his eye? But then I grew to love him! He’s so gentlemanly and dashing and handsome and kind. The perfect companion for our daring Kitty.
But it wasn’t until he had his “dark night of the soul” that I truly began to take him into my heart. I loved how Kitty encouraged him when he lost hope, and we get to see his fiery spirit rally and his courage is restored! Strong Kitty is an inspiration to everyone around her, including me.
I devoured the fantastic plot!!! Ah, so good!! I can’t even describe how much I adore this book!!! First of all, PUZZLES. And secondly, CODES and secret messages. And best of all, HISTORY! My analytic brain is so happy right now. All that delicious history about the Titanic, and what really might have happened on her doomed decks that fateful night. Somewhere in the middle of it all, we get all these wonderful Egyptian hieroglyphics, and Irish fairy mounds, and history popping up all over the place.
And my little reader heart just loves all the good characters, and the adventure, and the action, and the sweet little bit of romance. I can’t even stand how much I love this plot!
Warning: Do NOT read this book before bed, because you WILL be up until 2:00am to finish reading it. It’s just a fact of life. You won’t be able to stop reading.
