This is a great book about a girl that sets off to find her father's eyes when a prince steals them. They are very powerful eyes and they have the power to move and work with metal. Petra must gather her wits and make sure she holds on to them.

This novel is one of the better novels I have read. Although I read it as a project I enjoyed it even though I dislike reading on a normal basis. This book will keep you reading and reading until the end because of the cliff hangers at the end of the chapters. I do recommend this book, I think it is a very good read for children 11+. It combines passion with action and thrill that will cause you to keep reading and enjoy this book.

In an alternate timeline where magic is common place, a girl named Petra is on a quest to find and return her father's magical eyes. With the help of a few friends, some gypsies, amd possibly an english spy for queen elizabeth she journeys to the the palace with a plan to break into the evil prince's most treasured posession - the cabinet of wonders. Will she succeed? Or is there more to this story than she ever thought possible... I loved this book! The emotions it evoked were real, who wouldn't go to the moon and back if they could do something for a loved one? The characters have spunk, and make mistakes, but they never give up hope. It had me laughing at some parts and crying out in outrage at others, and its got the perfect villain to hate. Definitely read this book and anything else by Rutkoski, she's a fabulous writer!

It is very pulling to want to be read. I could barely stop reading this very amazing book that i got from my nook. I really recomend it heartily to people who love fantasy, action, aswell as a tad bit of mystery because this is the right book for even people who don't like exactly the genre that i described earlier in my review.
