Original review at Izy s dream Seer seriesI liked how Sabine is slowly moving away from her shallow or normal as she calls it life and moving towards real relationshipsIt is not that ditching friends is a good things but ditching people who are not really your friends because you can t be yourself around them is than okay You gotta learn to know your value and respect yourself if you want others to do so Be true is my best advice to Sabine but also to all girls and women out thereI liked how Manny Thorn and Dominic were present through all the book I also really liked Amy s part in this book Oh and I particularly njoyed the part when Manny drives Sabine home hahaha you ll understand when you read itI didn t really like the whole witch ball idea it was all weird to me but that s a personal opinion I think it was a bit far fetched but I get that it was necessary to help Sabine know her gift betterI loved Opal s role and presence in this installment but I hate Sabine s lack of respect towards her I get that she s her guide but she could speak to her without the attitude or without sending her away very time Opal doesn t answer her uestions or doesn t give her direct answers The whole point of guiding is letting your student learn by themselves not feeding them all the answers like a spoiled childFinally it was a really good book but I thought it was too short I don t really like Sabine s attitude and the witch ball idea didn t appeal to me These are the reasons why it s not 5 stars but it is still well written and it was njoyable Beware it Loyal to His Lies ends on a cliffhanger Personally I don t mind but those of you who do consider yourselves warned Omgoodness I can tven right now This book was good But really they didn t need to put that cliffhanger Ok so I The Favorite Daughter enjoyed this book Don t get me wrong but it just seemed a little different then the last three Nona s disease is progressing and her short term memory is worsening so Sabine and Dominic are working hard to find the remaining two silver charms to lead them to the remedy book After finding the first missing charm at thend of the last book Sabine also receives a crystal ball a witch ball She discovers unfortunately that the witch ball is possessed by an angry spirit who causes uite a bit of chaos Manny Sabine s school newspaper Fitness for Geeks editor and one of the few who knows she s a psychic uses the ball at the fortune telling booth at the school fair and makes predictions which begin to come true The main problem is that one of his predictions is that Sabine would die by hend of the week In the course of tracking down the others for whom Manny made predictions she learns new information about friends and classmates some of whom are not who they seem to be at first She s still hiding her psychic abilities from best friend Penny Love and perfect boyfriend Josh but she s also getting to know better and really trust her Goth friend Thorn Manny and Dominic with whom she feels a strange powerful and confusing connection Her twin sisters back home with her parents are also having issues as they grow older and into their different personalities and Sabine struggles with her mother who does not appreciate her gifts and who she feels kicked her out of the house because of them Will Sabine really die at the nd of the week Will she and Dominic find the remedy book in time to help Nona Can she help the spirit in the witch ball move on Will she reconcile with her family 45 stars rereadReading it a second time made me njoy this novel I got to appreciate the mystery and the way the story developed This one was very magical that it made this book so interesting The love triangle is being develop which.
