So much of what is wrong with this book could have been fixed by reading literally the last page or two of the prior book I never expected to be so let down by Levine but honestly this is uite possibly the worst seuel ever due to the number of mistakes in carrying forward the same world as the last one1 Goodwife Celeste and her Goodman Twah End of last book these spies from Tair delayed their return trip to go back with Elodie et al and took the cog back to Lahnt together Enter this book and neither person is on the ship with them nor is ever mentioned Discovering this book was written four years after the initial book makes this make sense but is really inexcusable because read literally the last couple of pages of your own book first2 Caps Only the city folk of Two Castles are up to date on the fashion change so everyone there wears little caps that tie under the chin Nobody on Lahnt wears them since Lahnt is a bit small and isolated But the very first Brunka they meet is wearing a cap and a few others in the book are mentioned as wearing one3 Stupid phrases Elodie constantly saysthinks lambs and calves as an expression of surprise throughout the first book Now everyone has a two item phrase tailored to their livelihood Whales and porpoises says the coastal islander Master Robbie even though something like land sea or something shorter would have made for less of a mouthful Hair and teeth says the barber surgeon which honestly I thought a bit creepy Even the dragon gets in on it Fire Smoke Teeth Scales Eventually High Brunka Marya gets one though it doesn t make sense bees are what they call the normal human beings who help the Brunkas not real bees but her expression is Bees Ants Does the innkeeper say Room Board Really it was just annoying to hear everyone else use a form of this expression when lambs calves was overused already4 The entire idea of BrunkasBrunklesBees If they had been there in the author s original imagining of the island they would definitely have been mentioned or referred to in the first book given how much of an influence they have over Lahnt I have no idea of whether they were based on real creatures but it seems likely given their really stupid powers they re constantly flicking rainbows off their fingers they have super hearing but are never overpowered by loud noises constantly happy jolly beings that do nothing but good They live off donations and there are Lahnt sayings surrounding them they give out of goodness we give out of gratitude and a 120 of everything goes to the local brunka Bees human people who live with them work aren t allowed to own anything but a change of clothes and their pallet to sleep on and can t marry unless they uit being a Bee I don t know why but this entire concept was irritating5 The Replica Don t get me started Why didn t they just go to Tair Why Even though there was literally a volcano going to explode this book had no tension6 Seriously I was hoping for Tair opened the book and saw that map of Lahnt with the little numbers on it and knew and I was so disappointed7 SERIOUSLY WHY AREN T THEY GOING TO TAIR Because their plan was really stupid For one it s the onset of winter they run right into a blizzard shortly after arriving Who begins their pleasure trip around the world in the age of carts and wagons at the start of winterFor another the ogre eats MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF FOOD at every meal even if he s shape shifted into a smaller creature Why would they plan to go to Elodie s family farm with no notice and spend an entire season with them Much less the winter when there will be less food and no way to get 8 The rest of the book was filled with really clunky overblown descriptions Characters who were never seen again were described from eyes to hair to skin to their garments Rooms were exhaustively detailed but not well I started just skimming over them and it made no difference reallyClunky applied too well to characters actions At first it would be passable someone would say something uneasily then fidget and look at the ground Then Elodie would think that they looked uneasyuncomfortable Then she would say to them Hey you look uneasy andor uncomfortable I hated being clobbered with it Just give the actions and leave it to us to pick up the cues9 And finally the whole mansioning is acting but not really thing Last book it seemed like a superpower this book it s downright magic Elodie finds some relicsartifacts that are bespelled to evoke certain emotional responses a daffodil that laughs and makes everyone who hears it laugh as well regardless of their emotional state or intent a handkerchief that emits a weeping so sincere so heartbroken everyone who hears it must also cryLodie thinks huh I wonder if I could mansion act something so well it could make others cry or laugh with me And does The first try And every time thereafter Meenore the dragon says how nice it would be if the handkerchief hadn t been stolen then they could see its powers for themselves So Elodie just thinks sad thoughts and begins to cry and wails so powerfully that both Master Robbie AND THE DRAGON cry with her uncontrollably until she stops Later when everything is going down and someone s got weapons she just sits up and starts laughing and laughs so happily that literally everyone in the entire room has to laugh with her to the point where they re so weak they can t stand any And that s how she saves the dayYou ve got to be kidding me

Read & download ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ý Gail Carson Levine Gail Carson Levine Ý 9 Read & download Free download Õ Stolen Magic 109 To use her wits to try to unravel a tangled web of lies New York Times bestselling author Gail Carson Levine has written an imaginative fast paced mystery that will be enjoyed by fans of A Tale of Two Castles as well as those meeting Elodie Meenore and Count Jonty Um for the first time. The review I posted on Having been a fan of Levine since Ella Enchanted came out I was really looking forward to Stolen Magic the seuel to A Tale of Two Castles Recently I reread Two Castles in anticipation of its seuel but after reading the first review here on I almost didn t buy it Thankfully I trusted my gut and went ahead and bought and read itI couldn t put Stolen Magic down I loved it The mystery was very well done with lots of possible and plausible suspects The main characters were as charming as ever and I thoroughly enjoyed this bookMy response to the first reviewer s complaint that Lahnt wasn t the uaint farming community portrayed in the first book is that the majority of the story doesn t take place in Elodie s hometown and isn t even in a farming community at all I enjoyed the location and setting of this story and felt it fit perfectly with the world of the first bookAs for the reviewer s complaint about Count Jonty Um s presence feeling forced in the book I don t agree I think what would have helped would have been a better reminder at the beginning of the story of why the group girl ogre dog and dragon were traveling together and why they were in LahntThe connection of Stolen Magic to its preuel is brief and incomplete there s no mention of Tair in the first few chapters which will make it difficult for those who haven t read the first book at allrecently to understandremember the main characters purpose in being in LahntHere s a reminder At the end of Two Cities the Count decides to travel to Tair where there are several ogres and where he feels he will better fit in unlike Two Castles where the humans are clannish He hires Meenore and her assistant to accompany him and his dog Nesspa on the journey Elodie explains that one way to reach Tair involved crossing Lahnt where she might see her parents and friend AlbinThe passages from the Count s and Meenore s points of view were a bit distracting but they were short and necessary to know what the ogre and dragon were experiencing I loved some of their experiences and felt the writing of these passages fit well with each character s personalityOverall this was yet another charming and enjoyable book by Levine that I m thrilled to add to my collection of favorite booksOh and for those who purchase the Kindle version be sure to scroll back to the front of the book my Kindle Fire automatically jumps to the first chapter which is really annoying to see the two maps one of Lahnt and the other of the Oase Sadly I missed these they would have been really helpful to consult while reading Stolen Magic

    Stolen Magic) [Pdf/E–book] Ü Gail Carson Levine I didn’t think Stolen Magic was half as good as A Tale of Two Castles It has that “tacked on seuel due to popular demand” feel to it where the author tries to recapture the essence of the first novel and fails The plot tries to be a decent mystery but there are so many characters introduced all at once that it’s hard to fol
