Merlin has anew mission for Jack and Annie: save the Grand Lady of the Lagoon from a terrible disaster
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
In my opinion this is a very good book. The writing language that the author used was very descriptive and it allowed me to paint a picture in my head of whatever it was he was describing. The lion’s stone mane ruffled into a mass of shaggy fur, his stone back softened into a sleek golden coat, and his stone wings stretched into long luminous feathers are just a few examples of the descriptive language that the author used throughout the text. I also enjoyed the plot of the story. Jack and Annie found themselves in many jams that seemed impossible to escape but they were able to. When they were thrown into jail with the rats I wondered how they would get out and they were able to escape with a magical rhyme. The book of rhymes got them out of a few impossible situations. There was always something new to be discovered around every corner like them having to figure out who was the Grand Lady of the Lagoon, or how they would find Neptune who was not real. Overall the plot was well organized. The message of this story is when using your imagination you anything is possible. ( )

This was a rather interesting story. I like it when they investigate obscure historical periods. Everyone does Medieval England, or Viking Scandinavia. Not a whole lot of people look at early Renaissance Venice. Also, the selkie rhymes are such a lazy cop-out. Might as well say abracadabra. ( )
