To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Five stars! In the second trilogy, more mystery enters the mix. However vague, I never felt overwhelmed. Towards the end of the book, I started feeling a little "meh", but that disappeared when suddenly the conclusion brought everything into a new perspective.
In other reviews, I saw some readers dislike Matthew and Isabella. I loved them. They share some of Griffin and Sabine's magic (Isabelle studies in Paris, Matthew is an archeologist in Alexandria). But they seem to be younger than both Griffin and Sabine, have a very sweet love and also a more "real" relationship: they talk of things they did together, of lovemaking, of seeing each other again... That is a relief after the strangeness of the first trilogy. They are impossibly sweet, but also two unique and clever people.
BONUS: Isabelle writes from Paris, Matthew from Alexandria, Griffin and Sabine from a place called Paolo. This makes the artwork more diverse and more beautiful than ever. Especially Matthew's postcards and letters from Egypt were stunning pieces of illustration.
Griffin & Sabine having resolved, we now have a similar pair of people, Matthew and Isabelle getting involved in Griffin and Sabine's quest. If you need a refresh of what attracted you to the Griffin & Sabine trilogy, this is the thing.
Thank you Nick Bantock for this installment of the Griffin & Sabine story. And thanks also to amazon.com for bringing it to my attention!
I have read The Griffin & Sabine Trilogy several times and was pleased to find out about this publication and that I could purchase it through amazon.com at a savings. I appreciate the imagination that went into putting this book together and appreciate it even more because it allows me to use mine. This extension of the mysterious story of Griffin & Sabine leaves me hoping there will be more to come.
