Chapter: Witch's Sight

I can understand why Abraham took Alex's wand. She'll be much more powerful if she can sense magic rather than being dependent on her wand. Plus, I think he wants her to learn to trust him and know that she's under his protection. Great chapter.

Chapter: Bespoke

I'm still wondering if Larry is flirting with Alex or vice versa, with all of that challenging duels. It wouldn't be the first time a relationship started out that way. Alex's service proposal sounds a little crazy, or maybe I should say overambitious. Great chapter.

Chapter: Without a Wand

I've been reading two chapters on Monday in order to give myself a bigger hit of Alexandra but that makes the end seem to come sooner. Of course, I couldn't have expected three major battle scenes--two should be enough for one book.

I have to comment on the "spoiled Alexandra" meme I've seen in various reviews--of course, we're seeing it from her viewpoint but I don't see her acting unreasonably, given what she's been through and the responses she gets from the adults around her. I sometimes feel like your writing super!Alexandra a little bit but we are talking about a world where magic exists after all, and her father clearly is pretty super, so why shouldn't she be.

What is sometimes a little out of character or age appropriate-ness for me is her sexual awareness. After all, she apparently just discovered boys in this book. Perhaps it's a mistaken impression that boys are the ones who fret about dying a virgin but it seems like Alexandra has enough to be getting on with without delving too deeply into sex right now (and I guess ultimately, she hasn't really, even if she wants to seem ready for more).

All in all, an excellent story (again) and I can hardly wait for the next book. Except, of course, that that puts us almost to the last book, which is the end, which will be really sad.

Chapter: Ghosts of Roanoke

I haven't been reviewing regularly because I'm abroad and tend to read new chapters on whichever fanfic site updates first, since I'm 7 hours ahead of America. But I swear, Alexandra has been what motivates me to get up on Mondays and Fridays, and I'm going to miss her until she returns in book 5. All I can say at this point is that I loved the book, love the characters more than ever, and am ridiculously curious about what comes next. Thank you for another awesome read. Seriously. I don't read any HP fanfics anymore except yours “ I just can't resist. The AQ series is amazing, and I really hope you continue to have the time, dedication, and enthusiasm to write about Alexandra.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I have every intention of continuing.

I love this series. So, when can I expect Chapter One of the next book?

Fantastic! I'm a big fan of the AQ series, and I'm very eager for Book Five! I am consistently impressed by your simultaneous creativity in creating a unique world and keeping it true to JKR's creation - bravo!

Chapter: Beneath the Stars Above

That was a great chapter. I really enjoyed it. I wonder if the presence of the Rashes caused interference in Calling Down the Stars. Your description of the ritual was interesting--their procession to the site; their dress; the formality of the situation. I like that Alex had the last word--don't mess with me or I will curse you!! Great chapter.

Chapter: A Determined Elf

That was a very interesting chapter. Alex is so smart to figure out how she could use an Elf to find John. I wonder if Larry and Bathseba perhaps broke up over Alex and their dueling. I think Quimley's advice is appropriate. Alex should tell her father about her life sentence. She's so stubborn to try to do everything herself. I have to admire how she keeps dueling Larry even though she loses. Eventually she'll beat him.

Chapter: Vengeance

I'm really curious, as is Alexandra, about why John would want to kill her. Alex is so mature for her age. I loved how she handled Mary and was sensitive to the memory of her sister. Exciting chapter. I loved it.

Chapter: The Duel

What is wrong with that Dearborn family? They just don't give up. I guess Mary could've been Imperioused. You always have such interesting mysteries. I've learned that things are not always the way they seem. Was that Anna's owl on the ground? I hope Larry's not dead. He was a pain but a useful character. I hope I have time to read today. Great chapter.

Chapter: The Last Pruett

That thing that is hiding is definitely the same thing she met at the hodag. It's time for some Abraham Thorn confrontation - both to resolve her history with Claudia, and to destroy that thing.

Author's Response: Hogan! The Hodag is a different monster. :o

Chapter: The Last Pruett

Oh, thank heavens! I've been waiting for the events in the beginning of this chapter for a while now. I realize that Alexandra is young, but she's also incredibly bright for her age. It's about dang time she started to realize that the world doesn't revolve around her feelings, that other people have been yanked around emotionally too, and that maybe, just maybe, she should stop being so cranky and short with people, especially the ones who have gone out of their way to keep her alive and whole for so many years.

Also, I like the fact that you continue to let us almost (but not quite) see the creatures that make the skittering noises. I find it very reminiscent of H.P. Lovecraft's style, and I think it enhances our fear of them. Good job!

Chapter: Between You and Me

Wow--that whole curse and poison thing was scary. I don't want it to be Mary who is after Alex either. And I would hope that John Manuelito has done more with his time than think of ways to sabotage and kill Alex. Some people do get crazy in their bitterness though. I think Innocence owes a life debt to Alex since Alex saved her life. Maybe they should let Innocence help. That way they can keep an eye on her. Great chapter.

Chapter: The Challenge

Did I sense a bit of romance between Torvald and Alex--or on the part of Torvald anyway? It's strange but probably good that the twins have contrasting views on reading the stars. I'm not a total believer in that sort of thing but something tells me it's not a good idea for Alex to plan to duel someone like Larry on Halloween. Great chapter.
