    1. I wrote this review of the first and second books in this series on my Livejournal blog a while ago and forgot that I never copied it over, but now that I ve received the third one for review, I thought I should, because I love this series and it doesn t get enough attention My review was prompted by a post I read back in 2010 about the lack of kick butt female heroines for middle grade girls, and that made me want to put in a plug for this fantasy series, the Kronos Chronicles This is one of th [...]


    2. Sometimes, children books are better than the YA books nowadays YA books especially dystopia and or fantasy tend to complicate their plots and add some subplots, then throw a lot of romance, jaw dropping twists, and death of a favorite character, that make their heart ache I m done with the YA drama and clich not totally thought, choosing a really good and original few.This is not better than the previous book, because there are two point of views to the story the voyage and the training detecti [...]


    3. I liked this second book in the trilogy better than the first In the first book, there was a lot of explanations and random minor characters, but in this book we have a solid story and better pacing, I think.Petra is on the run again from the evil Prince of Bohemia, and her friends, Neel and Tomik, are swept into her adventures The mysterious spy ambassador John Dee is back, and he tries to train Petra to use her magic, but she is an unruly student My favorite character by far is Astrophil, the [...]

    5. Ugh This series is really going downhill The plot is fairly solid, the storytelling and writing are fine, but if I was annoyed with protagonist Petra Kronos in The Cabinet of Wonders see my rather lengthy review at review show , then I am damn near fixin to strangle her in The Celestial Globe Once again, our hero Petra is a study in bipolar contrast where by bipolar I am not referring to the psychiatric condition, but rather literally relating to two opposite poles Here at age 13, she is mostly [...]


    6. by Marie RutkoskiOpening line Some days are just born bad This is, of course, the sequel to The Cabinet of Wonders Petra Kronos returns This time she is trying to readjust to life with her cousins and father after her excursions to Prague Unfortunately for her, her time there was not uneventful, and she attracted quite a bit of attention.The book wasn t quite what I was expecting somehow I think I had thought that it would focus on the new relationship between Mikal and Petra What I got was quit [...]


    7. I have the pleasure of knowing this series author, so that always brings special delight to the process of reading these books, thinking about their influences, and connecting them with Marie s personality and areas of intellectual expertise In this book s case, that was especially rewarding because I met Marie while we were both in Harvard s English department Ph.D program, and she was studying Renaissance literature This installment in the Kronos Chronicles frolics and fences in Renaissance En [...]


    8. Petra has drawn the attention and not always the good kind of Prince Rodolfo and John Dee From reading the first book, we know that the prince is evil, but John Dee is a mystery When Petra finds herself in his care in London, her first wish is to escape, even though the man has obviously saved her But she is apart from her father and her friends, totally dependent upon Astrophil and Dee s household Tomik, who set out to search for her, has problems of his own he has been made the slave on a ship [...]


    9. I have waited a year and half for this book When I read Cabinet of Wonders I NEEDED this book I have to admit now I need the next book This book took readers to England and used many historical characters while having the main focus be on the fictional characters There is every bit of fantasy and humor in this book that makes it a great read The chapters are on the short side so before one knows it the book is over with The action jumps from event to event without dragging on and on and making i [...]


    10. Starting a few months after the events in The Cabinet of Wonders, The Celestial Globe prepares you to look deep into the pasts of both Petra and her companions, Neel and Tom When she and her father are attacked, Petra along with her tin spider, Astro, are rescued by the mysterious John Dee He whisks her off to London to study her and her powers Petra discovers she is a Chimera, a soul with than one magical talent and begins a rigorous training program with Dee in the forefront and Kit teaching [...]


    11. Much Better Than The FirstBut again, I m a little bit leery of Petra s lack of thoughtfulness, considering how everyone seems to think she s observant than the average pubescent Plus, what s with the attitude Sure, she s a budding teenage rebellionist, but aren t we tired of these convoluted cultural stereotypes If that even means anything without being grammatically oxymoronic Or just moronicMUCH enjoyable than the first, with some intriguing intrigue, and magical magickness, there s even a b [...]


    12. You want to know my pet peeve in books movies Bad plot devices and one of the worst offenders is making the main character unreasonable and a little obnoxious in order for them to not take good advice and thereby save the day in their own way There is a workaround for this problem people It would just take a little ingenuity on the author s part It s such a shame that this episode in the trilogy suffers so badly from this plot device character development as the rest of the story is totally int [...]


    13. In this book, the sequel to The Cabinet of Wonders, Petra was really annoying and didn t seem to be the same Petra from the first book Here she was much stubborn and never listened to anything anyone told her I loved the mysterious John Dee and just wanted to slap Petra when she would not listen to what he was telling her Yeah he was a little shady, but couldn t she keep her mouth shut and learn to play his game I still enjoyed the adventure, but several times I had to stop, because she got on [...]



    14. I m about 1 3 into the book and absolutely enjoying it Rutkoski writes original, fun fantasy with strong, original young characters Woo


    15. Following up the Cabinet of Wonders, Marie Rutkoski plots a wonderful mix of history and magical realism that I can t wait for my girls to read


    16. Uhhh So, I am kind of sad Like._.I adore the first book, alright It s fun, with an original story and a world that s entertaining The characters were good and the writing kinda cool But this one is all over the place It lacked the focus of the first one, and that s annoying.Like, in the first one it was Petra Must get my father s eyes Neel Must get money to leave Now it s Petra Chapter 1 Must leave before the prince arrives Chapter 2 Must leave and save my dad again Must learn magic Must find ou [...]


    17. HA I knew Kit met bad news, I knew itm I knew it I love it when I predict something and am right but like why Petra, why would you ever even like him Also can we just have a minute for Neel i think it was him who said it when he was all like what kind of name is Kit, it reminds me of kittens and is very girly I love him SO much And he needs to start a life with Petra I mean I love Tomic and all but Neel I mean who was with Petra than the entire book NEEL Not Tomik, I mean I actually do like him [...]


    18. My name is John Dee, and I ve rescued Petra from four Gray Men, the prince s assassins I got confirmation from an air spirit that she s a chimera and has multiple powers, which makes her very special I keep her in my home for her own protection, although she feels like she s in prison I m trying to solve the murder of an advisor to Queen Elizabeth, and I ve agreed to a deal presented by young Petra I ve agreed to free her if she s able to uncover the murderer before I do this should be amusing T [...]
