Juvenile fantasy, fourth in the series; shows all the signs of the author losing interest and/or running out of ideas. ( )
  phoebesmum | Aug 25, 2012 |
Strega-Borgioiden lomamatkan aikana Säppi on joutunut sairaskohtauksen uhriksi ja on menettänyt muistinsa. Rva McLachlan aavistaa, ettei kyseessä ole sairaus vaan demonin hyökkäys. Demoni on Kronokiven jäljillä. Eräiden sattumusten seurauksena Kronokivi päätyy Unikeolle, joka tekee siitä timantin kihlasormukseen morsiantaan Ffupia varten.

Samalla Sapientek perustaa yrityksensä lähelle Strega-Borgioiden kotilinnaa. Tituksen ja Tarantellan epäilyksen heräävät valkoisten hiirten muodossa. Tarantella löytää niitä kuolleena kaikkialta ja Titus näkee niitä vietävän rekallisen yritykseen. Netistä ei kuitenkaan löydy mitään yrityksestä. Myös hovimestarin sijainen Zander tuntuu olevan tavattoman kiinnostunut Sapientekin toimista. Perheen lemmikit päättävät vielä lehti-ilmoituksen perusteella mennä yritykseen vapaa-ehtoisiksi koehenkilöiksi rahoittaakseen Tokon vallihaudan remontin.

Rva McLachlanin ansiosta selvitään niin demonista kuin Sapientekin kaatamisestakin.

Tämä kirja lähti ehkä hieman hitaasti käyntiin. Juoni oli kyllä mielenkiintoinen vauhtiin päästyään. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0552550469, Paperback)

When the Strega-Borgias return from holiday to find that their faithful family retainer, Latch, has collapsed from unknown causes, it is only the start of their problems. Signora Strega-Borgia is feeling very peaky in the mornings, Titus is trying to save the world and Pandora has an embarrassing crush on the new butler (to say nothing of the fact that a demon is trying to invade StregaSchloss). Only Ffup the dragon is truly happy, due to her forthcoming marriage to the Loch Ness Monster. A fantastically epic plot, culminating in Flora McLachlan making the ultimate sacrifice, which will have committed fans and newcomers turning the pages late into the night.

Danger continues to find the members of the eccentric Strega-Borgia family at their Scottish castle, this time in the form of a butler who wants to blow up a nearby corporation and a demon who seeks the all-powerful Chronostone.
