Penance, noun:

1. Punishment for past actions.

2. An attempt to pay for what can’t be bought.

3. See also “exile.”

Antimony Price is on the run. With the Covenant on her tail and her family still in danger, she needs to get far, far away from anyone who might recognize her—including her own mice. For the first time in a long time, a Price is flying without a safety net. Where do you go when you need to disappear into a crowd without worrying about attracting attention? An amusement park, of course.

Some people would call Lowryland the amusement park. It’s one of the largest in Florida, the keystone of the Lowry entertainment empire…but for Annie, it’s a place to hide. She’s just trying to keep her head down long enough to come up with a plan that will get her home without getting anyone killed. No small order when she’s rooming with gorgons and sylphs, trying to placate frustrated ghosts, and rushing to get to work on time.

Then the accidents begin. The discovery of a dead man brings Annie to the attention of the secret cabal of magic users running Lowryland from behind the scenes. They want the fire that sleeps in her fingers. They want her on their side. They want to help her—although their help, like everything else, comes with a price.

No plan. Minimal backup. No way out. Annie’s about to get a crash course in the reality behind the pretty facade. If she’s lucky, she’ll survive the experience.

2.5 Weakest in the series
This book was 0% Aeslin mice. It also seemed like it lasted forever. I kept reading and reading and then I would look down and see 42%. We did finally get a bit more information about Mary and Antimony's powers. However, I can't say that I've been as impressed with the last few books as I was a...

Author's note in the back says that since Antimony has done so well, they want a third book of her. Uh...has no one explained series to them? As in, if you're following a series, you'll probably read one book about a character you don't care for just in case there's something you'll need to know in ...

4.0 Annie skates her way back into adventure
There are people who say you never really escape from high school, you just keep finding it in different forms, over and over again, until it finally kills you. Those people are assholes, and should not be allowed in polite company. That doesn’t mean they’re wrong. The room seemed even larger with...
