Dear Victoria,

I thought the book was amazing and I even enjoyed it more than the first one! The characters were described so well that it was as if I watching a film of it in my mind.
The story was sooo exciting, I felt like I could never put it down. Catherine is my favourite character because she is very adventurous.
The last page was my favourite and I had butterflies in my tummy!
I would recommend this book to my friends and would give it 5 out of 5.
