That's a good point - re Floote. Rebekah Send a noteboard - 01/04/2012 10:37:41 PM
- I want a kid like Prudence. Maybe Evelyn will be that precocious. (It's quite likely.)

I have high hopes for Evelyn, look who she has for parents. That is going to be one well-read child. - Prue is a great addition! I was fearful about the 'infant inconvenience' initially but loved how she was executed. I also have to admit I really like that Alexia remained largely the same with her kid - she's soulless, not emotionless. I very much enjoyed their scenes together.

Heh, thanks.

Completely agree re Alexia and Prudence. I was worried about where she was going with the baby in the third book, and not fully appeased in book 4, so I loved it so much in this book.

- Major Channing Channing of the Chesterfield Channings is still lovely.

I want more from him. Maybe he'll appear in Prudence's series!

Fingers crossed!

- Also loved what happened with Floote, even though it's a huge change for him not to stay around with Alexia.

I actually wasn't as huge of fan of this twist. I think Danielle pointed out that "if PP goes back to one well too often, it's the thought-to-be-trusted-friend-is-actually-not-so-good. Angelique, Professor Lyall, Madame Lefoux, and now Floote." and I have to agree. I liked that more was revealed about him, but wish he hadn't been just like the other characters.

I hadn't thought about that - mostly because I'm perfectly happy with formulaic books. But in the one series it does seem a little ... lazy, perhaps?

I also could've done without Madame Lefoux. I liked the first four book but after Heartless, she seems like an odd addition to the 5th book.

Definitely. I was surprised to see her turn up. (I had intended to comment on that in my thoughts but it slipped out of my very slippery head.)
