Rory - Book Review

Rory  - Ciye Cho

I will confess I have a weak spot for boarding school stories. I blame Enid Blyton and her St. Clare's series.

So when I was asked if I wanted to read and review Rory and saw the mention of a Charm School I jumped at the chance.

And even though large parts of this book don't take place in the mentioned Charm school, this is a very enjoyable read.

I really liked Rory. Apart from the strange upbringing she had, Rory could be your next door neighbor. When she's abducted she has only her wits to get her through the trials she has to face,

The school and the weird lessons Rory has to take are very intriguing and that part of the story could have been twice as long without me getting tired of it.

And then there's Martin Marius. He's mysterious, weird and Dutch! I liked him from the start and loved reading about his weird contraptions and the house filled with cats. The growing friendship between him and Rory was fun to read.

The overall storyline was suspenseful and although sometimes character development slowed down the action, it never got boring. There were some things I wondered about, but for most part I enjoyed the story and the characters that peopled the world of Palladino.

I think I'll keep an eye out for book 2 in this series to see what happens next for Rory and to see if some of my questions about this world will be answered.
