Finally Abby is
not only learning how to use and contain her talent, but she
is also getting a handle on swimming. So, it is time to
face the magic community, and the magic Summit is just
around the corner. She only wishes it wasn’t being combined
with the trial of Miranda. But at least it makes for a
great road trip to the United States to attend the event.
It has to be a road trip as she is not going to put her
gargoyles or gnomes in a cargo hold, just think of the havoc
that they could wreak there.
What Abby is not
prepared for is the mixed reaction she gets when meeting the
magic community. Some are treating her as if she is
royalty, but then there are a few that seem to be out to
either imprison her—as past Nexus’s were—or control her.
While Abby feels
torn in many directions at the summit and trial, she does
have Xander, her Oak Point Guard, and her creatures with
her. So she forges ahead and you never known what might
happen next with Abby.
in the Round
is a fantastic follow up to Gnomes of Suburbia. I
continue to enjoy my ventures into the mind of Ms. Grace and
can hardly wait for what is next? Pixies, maybe? I find
that this latest Nexus Chronicles only cemented my
need to continue to follow Abby and her guard, not to
mention her creatures. I thoroughly enjoyed the spunky
banter and thoughts of Abby, and how her new perspective
shakes up the stodgy world of magic, that she has entered
into, albeit a little bit reluctantly at first. I loved
Gargoyles in the Round and am waiting for the
next installment. Is it out yet?
