Once we met the Chinese character halfway through this book, the story really took off. But the problem is, getting there. The first half read like three books squished into one, a lot of names thrown at the reader, and long info dumps that didn't make much sense. Lukas's grandmother is on his side, yet she does all this mean magic to him for no reason that makes sense. And it's supposed to take place in Germany, but the setting is more like a fantasy castle in a bubble. There is no sign of anything German, no history, no food or culture or setting. Again, once the story leaves Germany it suddenly picks up and gets much better, and really races to the end . . . for a total cliff hanger.
