A grand (and, dare I say it, creative) adventure! I think anyone might enjoy joining forces with Reynie, Kate, Sticky and Constance in their quest to save the world from Ledroptha Curtain. The Society has been living with their beloved Mr. Benedict, along with all their families, to keep safe from Mr. Curtain. But Mr. Curtain is on the move and desperately trying to get his greedy hands on the Whisperer machine. With it, he could use mind-control and take over the world for his own use. (Although I may not approve of all the mind-sweeping and such... it's still a delightful book!)
I'm hoping that the author will end up writing another story about the Society one day.
