Um, when is the second book coming out? This book had everything: action, kidnapping, adventure, ghosts, and my favorite, Tomi's chocolate addiction. I loved the diverse group of character, who brings different set of skills to the table. They were likable and I can't wait to see more of them. The plot and setting were great, I can't wait to see what other places they're going to go and what artifact they're going to find.
Mia, a twelve year old foster kid, had been bounced from foster home to foster home, takes up residence in a new home, called the Tarpley's Estate. Where she finds three girls, Devon, Tomi, and Lily, who Mrs. T fosters, who are around the same age as her or a little older.
Almost immediately Mia knew they were hiding something from her, but she didn't know what and wanted to find out of course. After a rude encounter with one of the girls Mia wants to runaway, but on the day, or should I say night, of her attempted runaway, she ends following the girls and Mrs. T's assistant out into the Labyrinth. Mia ends up in France by grabbing one of the girls arms, trying to save her.
Mia is immediately filled in about the Labyrinth Society and what they do. One of the girls explains that they're in France to search for the necklace of Marie Antoinette that has been lost in history. Of course they're villains who wants to get their hands on the lost necklace as well and will do anything to attain it. The girls have powerful items with them, along with their skills to help them along the way.
My only problem I had was with the first chapter when the girls introduced themselves, I thought it took an element of shock/surprise out on small part of the book for me. Other than that I loved it and can't wait to read more.
This book has it all: history, humor, mystery, magic, the supernatural, and plenty of girl power. The story is told from the alternating POVs of Mia and her three foster sisters who all have a special talent, as well as plenty of sass and snark, that they use to help solve the mystery. I loved it!
The plot was stuffed with action, with only a few inevitable info-dumps at the beginning. Most of the book takes place in a single day, but it doesn't feel dragged out.
I really liked Mia. While she and the other girls often appeared older than twelve, she was still a spunky and understandable character.
The ending was confusing, but then again, NetGalley labeled it sci-fi and fantasy, and most books in that genre are. If I mull over it some more it might make more sense.
The writing style was mostly great--Angie Kelly does character voice very well. While all the girls were somewhat similar, each had personal features that helped distinguish them. However, it was often wordy and I had to re-read sentences a lot.
Would I want to read other books in the series? You bet!
Angie Kelly’s Labyrinth Society: The Versailles Vendetta is a fast paced, addicting, and fun read, full of thrills; humor; and clever storytelling. Combining mystery, history, science, fantasy, and action, Angie Kelly has crafted such an awesome and imaginative premise and spun an exciting story. The physical world of Labyrinth Society: The Versailles Vendetta (including the Tarpley Estate, the mesmerizing and complex labyrinths, and the dazzling cities of Versailles and Paris) is laid out in rich, lush details. Young readers will love exploring the fascinating and mysterious Tarpley Estate with Mia, be completely wowed and intrigued by the labyrinths, and be enchanted by the gorgeous Versailles and Paris. And the magical, otherworldly aspects of the Labyrinth Society are just so much fun to explore and learn about.
I found Labyrinth Society: The Versailles Vendetta’s characters to be a charming, engaging eclectic bunch. Each young character (Mia, Lily, Tomi, and Devon) gets a chance to narrate the story, and young readers will enjoy getting to know each of them and seeing the story from their perspectives. Alex is an amusing fella, while Mrs.Read more ›
