So the third book in the Arcadia Bell series came out at the end of May. And finished with a sort of cliffhanger. bOuNcY Has anyone else read this series? I can't wait to see what happens next for Cady & Lon & Jupe! It's one of my "must reads". :)

Books in order:-

Kindling the Moon
Summoning the Night
Leashing the Tempest (novella)
Binding the Shadows

I really like this series. The first book suffered from a little "first-book" problems, but the rest have improved. I love Jupe - he's one of my favorite characters. It's so nice to have an adolescent in a series like this. It seems that in urban fantasy, most of the characters are adults.

I remember reading the end of the last book and yelling out loud "Oh no she didn't!!!" I got a few strange looks, but geez, what a cliffhanger! I did figure out her status earlier in the book, so I kinda saw the baby coming, but I didn't see her complete and total beating. That was harsh.

There are many people – happy people, it usually appears – whose thoughts at Christmas always turn to books. The notion of a Christmas tree with no books under it is repugnant and unnatural to them. – Robertson Davies (1997)

Yes it was nasty. :-'

And I didn't really like the nutty mother plotline. I thought that was resolved and over in book one.

I agree. I wish that plotline had stayed put. It made a really neat first book curve, but I'd hate for it to become the main thread throughout the books.
