Sophie has grown up knowing she is
different. She is an animal talker, but when she attends
the HalfBlood ball at Hotel Spectre, she finds out that what
she has thought might not be right. Meeting up with the
person who is to be her mentor she finds out that instead
she is an extremely rare “Love Talker”. Now through the
coaching and growing attraction with her coach Raffin she is
coming easily into her gift but will that matter to her?
She just might want to keep Raffin more than anything else.
In Hotel Spectre, Ms.
Grace shows that bigotry can take place in many different
ways. In this case it is between those who are pureblood
and those who are mixed blooded beings in a magical world.
But, this parallels any kind of racism and is a tough
subject to tackle. I felt that Ms. Grace did a wonderful job
in this case, and I got to see some favorite characters, and
find some new favorites while she did this. I would someday
love to spend time talking fantasy worlds with this author,
but until then I will continue to read, and most likely
enjoy, her works. If you want a fast fantasy read then
Hotel Spectre is for you, you might even find a
world you want to learn more about.
