Read full description of the books:
Mixed thoughts on this book. It certainly a lot less fun than the first book. Lionel's self-esteem and self-image issues are relentless and uncomfortable read about as is his father's crusade to murder him or get someone else to do it for him.
I was also bothered by the fact that Rowan is seemingly the only person capable of being kind to Lionel. Even Etty bullies him and calls him an idiot (that she did it to motivate him isn't much of a comfort but I am glad that she later apologised.) Robin just sees him as a problem that might get his daughter killed and Little John literally tries to assault Lionel hoping that he'll just start being manly if he gets hit enough.
On the whole the book is well written, well paced and does have a fairly satisfying conclusion. But it wasn't an entirely fun read as I spent much of the time just feeling terrible for Lionel and wanting to yank him out of the story and find somewhere safe and loving to put him instead.
Hopefully, future books will see his treatment by others improve.

BIO -- NANCY SPRINGER
Nancy Springer has passed the fifty-book milestone, having written that many novels for adults, young adults and children, in genres including mythic fantasy, contemporary fiction, magical realism, horror, and mystery -- although she did not realize she wrote mystery until she won the Edgar Allan Poe Award from the Mystery Writers of America two years in succession. DARK LIE, recently released from NAL, is her first venture into mass-market psychological suspense.
Born in Montclair, New Jersey, Nancy Springer moved with her family to Gettysburg, of Civil War fame, when she was thirteen. She spent the next forty-six years in Pennsylvania, raising two children (Jonathan, now 38, and Nora, 34), writing, horseback riding, fishing, and birdwatching. In 2007 she surprised her friends and herself by moving with her second husband to an isolated area of the Florida panhandle, where the birdwatching is spectacular and where, when fishing, she occasionally catches an alligator.
