The Conjurer's Riddle by Andrea Cremer - OPTIONAL

Cremer, Andrea The Conjurer’s Riddle, 340 pgs.  Philomel Books, 2015.  $18.99  Content: Language: PG-13 (4  swears); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13.   

Charlotte has returned to the Catacombs to find that they have been destroyed.  Following the back-up plan she is able to locate the children who escaped the destruction and begins a journey to meet up with the rest of the Rebels in New Orleans.  Charlotte’s friend and protector, Grave, is stilling attracting a lot of attention and Charlotte continues to try and defend his humanity.  

This is the second book in the series.  Charlotte is a likable character and the setting and rebellion are interesting, but it always feels really slow and drawn out.  I felt bored while I was reading and was anxious for it to be over.  The ending is super frustrating though—it is worse than a cliff hanger because they are in the middle of a life threatening situation and it ends.  Ugh, disappointing read.   

MS, HS – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
