Ok, it's been a while, and I'm not overly fond of reading about kids of couples past but... It was better than I expected.
My biggest quibble is that Judith considers herself to not be very bold yet her first run-in with the H was when she and her cousin spotted a lamp in the abandoned house and went to investigate. That she made another trip at the beginning of the book, plus the number of other times she did things that, well... Let's just say De Nile isn't just a river in Africa.
The H, well, he had reasons for his attitude towards the nobility.
Considering this book came out 3 years ago, I wonder when Jack's book comes out. I kinda sorta want to read it but at the same time...
