The second book in the Falco series by Lindsey Davis is better than the first.  It still takes a little while to get going, and only gets really good once Helena Justina makes an appearance.  In fact, I think what I like about the book as a whole is the inclusion of a lot more secondary characters.  Falco gets a bit annoying if he's left to his own devices for too long, but things are much more interesting and enjoyable when his friends are around to be mean to him!

His relationship with Helena remains the best aspect of the books - I can't remember how many I've read before but there are eighteen now and I wonder how sustainable the formula is once the relationship is established.  I guess I shall find out - though I don't plan to read all eighteen books in a row.

Your Score: 10 1/4", Yew, Veela

You scored 68 wisdom, 16 bravery, 5 emotional, and 22 martyrdom!

A yew wand signifies a wizard of great wisdom and intellect and is very useful in transfigurations. The veela hair as a wand core means that you are slightly unpredictable but very powerful.
