    I liked it at the beginning when Lucy made G'reth. I liked the new characters that showed up in the book. I liked how David made a new book and it also started coming to life like his first book. I liked how Gretel changed sides and bonded to Zanna.

      At my school library I saw the series and I thought I should read one of the books. As I started reading it I was more and more interested. I really like the characters.
