What's interesting about Maggie as a character that she willing to risk everything just to find her father, but when loose pieces are involved she finds it harder to be reckless not that it's had stop her before.
While the pace of the book was gradual, I liked it. There were moments that I liked when Maggie started showing more of an interest into Quentin because she needs him just like he does. But Quentin's reasons were much more greater because he stands to lose almost everything he knows until the truth was finally revealed.
I have to be honest when the ending came through, I was shocked I did not expect to see that happen even more so when Maggie starts losing everything too.
Now there was clearly no romance between Quentin and Maggie, it was slow and just kind of a spur of a moment kind of thing. But still no fireworks. But in the end it's seem that Maggie is starting to see beyond her mind it was a little too late but Quentin made it very apparent that he had started to have feelings for her.
When Maggie was in the Mercer Household, I have to say that she was playing in the lion's den and that is a very dangerous situation in itself. In the end of the book it had clearly showed that nothing goes undetected but now where does Maggie's plan go from here?
I love the idea from many years ago when I learned about this book and I still love the idea even years later and finally getting a chance to read it.
I give this an 4 Cat Paws UP, that ending was pretty intense and shocking it was probably one of the best cliff hanger I've read so far. I can't wait to see what happen in the second book.
