This novel is a follow...

This novel is a follow-up to Spelled. I had to review the first book to remember all the craziness that happened! Rexi, Dot's side-kick--so to speak--in Spelled, has her own story with this novel, which is ironic. For the entire novel, Rexi is trying to not be erased from all the stories. She repeatedly dies, but Dorothea is able to bring her back despite the king of the dead wanting her as well. Every time she dies, Morte clips more of her storyline, making her forget her stories/life. In this novel, they are bridging the gap between fairy tales and legends. For example, Rexi is the daughter of Robin Hood, which would mean that she should be really good at stealing. Alas, it always goes awry. In this novel, Rexi is trying to get Excaliber, Arthur's sword so that it stays out of Blanc's hands. If she gets it, she'll have too much power. Many characters from the second novel reappear, but their personalities change and they have a shorter time on the pages. To be honest, I didn't like this novel as well as the first. We hardly saw the characters we were interested in from the first book; it truly focuses on Rexi who isn't that interesting. The novel seems chaotic and hard to follow as Dorothea is going crazy because of her powers; Kato shows up occasionally to give Rexi a faux love interest; and, Oz has the role of storymaker with no story telling ability. I could never get interested because the story just ran around--something happens, she dies, something happens, she dies, old character shows up, something happens, she dies. Perhaps I wasn't "in the mood," but this novel just didn't do it for me. You definitely need a background in the Arthur and Robin Hood legends--just a little, not full knowledge. Give it a try if you read the first book. Otherwise, I can show you some more captivating novels for your reading pleasure.

Although I mostly enjoyed the story and characters, the prose itself has a case of trying-too-hard and its "cleverness" is merely annoying.
