  • Morgan McGuire

    I think that Mary Norton just lost it by this point. Great borrower hijinks, fun descriptions and imagery, and then a seriously bonkers literary structure. Ghosts are set up quite deliberately and the...

    After the lovely "Borrowers Aloft," this book feels superfluous, and worse, out of continuity. Why add another ending book when "Aloft" had such an "end of series" feel? Why does Spiller get so little...

    It was another great, exiting tale, but the ending could have had more action....
