Back Blurb:

17th century London - two rival secret societies are caught in a battle that threatens to destroy the city and beyond.

My Review:

The Last Seal was very good book! It was a little hard to get into at first but that could have been because I had so much going on that day I couldn't concentrate. :) It was very well-written although at one point one of the main characters was described in two different ways. My favorite character would have to be Freya. She was a kick-butt girl not one of those faint-every time-something-scares-me girls.... :-) And I was kind of hoping that her and the Doctor would get together because they would be just perfect for each other. : ) My absolute favorite part of the book was the very last fight scene. I was reading so fast just so I could see what would happen at the end I started going cross-eyed! The Last Seal was a very good, well-written book! Don't miss it if you love YA Historical Fantasy. Recommend to people who loved The Healer's Apprentice or The Merchant's Daughter.
