I had high hopes when I picked this book up. I'm disapointed that I didn't like it. First off, the characters were stale, under developed, and just plain unlikeable. The plot, which was supposed to be fairly straight forward, (girl goes on a journey to look for her sister), quickly got confused and ended up going down a completely different path than it was originally supposed to, turning into a conflict with counterfitters. There was too much of a focus on the long flashback scenes, which were so frequent that I couldn't remember what had been happening in the present when it finally cut back to the main story. The main conflict in the novel (finding Agatha) was hurriedly resolved at the end of the book in a short, brief way that didn't give it the approprite attention it deserved, but there was a big scene at the end involving the counterfitters. It was like the author got distracted with an idea for another story and started writing it into the middle of this one. Imagine taking the beginning of one story and the middle of another, smashing them together, and then trying to write an ending that connected the conflicts in both books while resolving the events that occured, and you'll have an idea of what this book is like.
