Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celie's favorite days. That's because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing. No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one-other than Celie, that is-takes the time to map out the new additions. But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and their fate is unknown, it's up to Celie, with her secret knowledge of the castle's never-ending twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom.
We've been fans of Jessica Day George for years, so it's no wonder that this beginning of a new series made its way into our home. I didn't get to read it right away. My wife claimed first dibs. She wouldn't let me have it.
This was an especially fun MG read, provided with a rare instance of a building that acts like a character of its own. It practically puts Harry Potter's moving staircases to shame. I took notes as I read, since this is the kind of fantasy I enjoy writing. With strong characters and a plot that twists and turns just as much as the castle does, I dub this novel a worthy (and quick) read!
