Overview

Valentine Marsh has had a gut-wrenching year. While negotiating the usual rocky social terrain of high school, she's had a magical heritage thrust upon her, defeated a monster at grim personal cost (The Bronze King), and by a hair's breadth foiled the soul-stealing scheme of a pair of evil necromancers (The Silver Glove). And even now she can't catch a break!

During a New Year's Eve party in New York, Valentine and her friends unwittingly launch a far-reaching magical flare. Within days, the sending attracts a new threat-an arrogant young noblewoman masquerading as a foreign student named "Bosanka Lonatz." Bosanka gives Val a deadline to reconvene the New Year's party, aka the "Comet Committee," to help her summon her own lost people who might very well take over Earth, in place of the alien world they once ruled but had to abandon. With Granny Gran lying comatose in the hospital, Val must race time once more to forestall otherworldly disaster-but first she's got to rally her scattered, unpredictable friends and get a grip on her own fears, for a final confrontation with an angry and powerful enemy.

    this book is great -- interesting and exciting.

    I grew up in New York and went to school there, and this book really brings back to me some of the best parts -- about having secrets with friends, doing things you're definitely not supposed to do and then having to jump through hoops to save yourself from the consequences -- which is a lot more fun to read about than to do, actually, IMO. In this book Valentine, who's the descendant of witches and has powers she's not even aware of, has to organize a mixed bag of kids (who are NOT the popular ones, but are the smart and talented ones like the ones I hung out with -- or anyway we all thought we were pretty damn smart and talented) to get some control over this wild sorceress from a primitive world so they can help her solve her problem before she trashes the whole world trying to do it on her own. Bosanka, the alien witch girl, has powers that remind me of some of what Harry P. is learning about at Hogwarts, only nobody has taught her about using them, and she comes from a kind of savage world out in space somewhere, so Val and her friends have to be really fast on their feet to deal with her -- they're smart New Yorkers, and she's this haughty aristocrat who's used to dominating everything around her, so the sparks fly. Another part of the story is about dealing with her without grown-ups to help -- Val's magical grandmother is in the hospital and out of action -- which means, in a way, that Val and her group have pretty well graduated and are on their own, frantic and petrified half the time but resourceful and determined, too.
