Re: The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow: Chapters 13-19

This was a fun part of the book, when the clues started coming in fast and furious, with some more character development happening. Who is this McDermott person? I was starting to suspect a couple of people of being more (or less) than they appear to be? It's sort of fun to read of the London of tha...

My first experience of mystery stories was Rex Stout, followed closely by Agatha Christie, so I was sort of accustomed to having the clues doled out so we have a chance to solve it ourself along with whoever is the actual de...

I'm jumping ahead to this post, because I'm just so wow about the story. Thank you, Amy, for finding this book! It's a quick read, at least it is a quick read for me, because once I got past the establishing chapters, the story was so swift and didn't drag anywhere. Amy had written, in the post for ...

Re: The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow: Chapters 1-6

Yay, I got the book from the library via an Interlibrary Loan! This is entirely different and not at all what I was expecting. What a cast of characters introduced in these first chapters! Here's Sophie and she has a story which is tragic but is gritting through. And Billy who is alert and gets int...

Cold Toes - or not?

There is another topic in here, asking how to heat a castle . Depending on the methods used, magic or otherwise, the question of cold toes arises. What kind of footwear does one wear on one's feet -- and they probably wouldn't show under those black robes -- so what does one wear? If the castle is s...

Re: Brrr, Freeze COLD - how to heat a castle

I'm about to post another topic of 'being cold' in the castle, and things that people can do about staying warm. But, no one wrote any brilliant ideas in here of what they would do, to keep the castle warm? Are you a witch (or wizard) or not?! :ph34r: One idea that I had was the notion of invisible ...
