    1 thought on “The Celestial Globe”

    1. I wrote this review of the first and second books in this series on my Livejournal blog a while ago and forgot that I never copied it over, but now that I've received the third one for review, I thought I should, because I love this series and it doesn't get enough attention. My review was prompted by a post I read (back in 2010) about the lack of kick-butt female heroines for middle grade girls, and that made me want to put in a plug for this fantasy series, the Kronos Chronicles. This is one o [...]

    2. Sometimes, children books are better than the YA books nowadays. YA books (especially dystopia and/or fantasy) tend to complicate their plots and add some subplots, then throw a lot of romance, jaw dropping twists, and death of a favorite character, that make their heart ache. I'm done with the YA drama and cliché (not totally thought, choosing a really good and original few).This is not better than the previous book, because there are two point of views to the story - the voyage and the traini [...]

    3. I liked this second book in the trilogy better than the first! In the first book, there was a lot of explanations and random minor characters, but in this book we have a more solid story and better pacing, I think.Petra is on the run again from the evil Prince of Bohemia, and her friends, Neel and Tomik, are swept into her adventures. The mysterious spy/ambassador John Dee is back, and he tries to train Petra to use her magic, but she is an unruly student. My favorite character by far is Astroph [...]

    4. The Celestial Globe is the second book to the Kronos Chronicles series by Marie Rutkoski. After Petra come home from stealing back her father eyes, the prince send Graymen monster after her. She is then whisk away by her ally, John Dee, to London with the help of his daughter that can travel from one place to another instantly. She and her pet spider Astrophil is then kept by John and taught on how to improve her magic skills and fencing lesson with a cute teacher, named Kit. Back at home her be [...]

    5. Ugh. This series is really going downhill. The plot is fairly solid, the storytelling and writing are fine, but if I was annoyed with protagonist Petra Kronos in The Cabinet of Wonders (see my rather lengthy review at /review/show), then I am damn near fixin' to strangle her in The Celestial Globe. Once again, our "hero" Petra is a study in bipolar contrast (where by bipolar I am not referring to the psychiatric condition, but rather literally relating to two opposite poles). Here at age 13, she [...]

    6. by Marie RutkoskiOpening line: "Some days are just born bad."This is, of course, the sequel to The Cabinet of Wonders. Petra Kronos returns. This time she is trying to readjust to life with her cousins and father after her excursions to Prague. Unfortunately for her, her time there was not uneventful, and she attracted quite a bit of attention.The book wasn't quite what I was expecting somehow--I think I had thought that it would focus on the new relationship between Mikal and Petra. What I got [...]

    7. I have the pleasure of knowing this series' author, so that always brings special delight to the process of reading these books, thinking about their influences, and connecting them with Marie's personality and areas of intellectual expertise. In this book's case, that was especially rewarding because I met Marie while we were both in Harvard's English department Ph.D. program, and she was studying Renaissance literature. This installment in the Kronos Chronicles frolics and fences in Renaissanc [...]

    8. Petra has drawn the attention (and not always the good kind) of Prince Rodolfo and John Dee. From reading the first book, we know that the prince is evil, but John Dee is a mystery. When Petra finds herself in his care in London, her first wish is to escape, even though the man has obviously saved her. But she is apart from her father and her friends, totally dependent upon Astrophil and Dee's household. Tomik, who set out to search for her, has problems of his own--he has been made the slave on [...]

    9. I have waited a year and half for this book. When I read Cabinet of Wonders I NEEDED this book. I have to admit now I need the next book. This book took readers to England and used many historical characters while having the main focus be on the "fictional" characters. There is every bit of fantasy and humor in this book that makes it a great read. The chapters are on the short side so before one knows it the book is over with. The action jumps from event to event without dragging on and on and [...]

    10. Starting a few months after the events in The Cabinet of Wonders, The Celestial Globe prepares you to look deep into the pasts of both Petra and her companions, Neel and Tom. When she and her father are attacked, Petra along with her tin spider, Astro, are rescued by the mysterious John Dee. He whisks her off to London to study her and her powers. Petra discovers she is a Chimera, a soul with more than one magical talent and begins a rigorous training program with Dee in the forefront and Kit te [...]

    11. Much Better Than The FirstBut again, I'm a little bit leery of Petra's lack of thoughtfulness, considering how everyone seems to think she's more observant than the average pubescent. Plus, what's with the attitude? Sure, she's a budding teenage rebellionist, but aren't we tired of these convoluted cultural stereotypes? If that even means anything without being grammatically oxymoronic? Or just moronicMUCH more enjoyable than the first, with some intriguing intrigue, and magical magickness, ther [...]

    12. You want to know my pet peeve in books/movies? Bad plot devices and one of the worst offenders is making the main character unreasonable and a little obnoxious in order for them to not take good advice and thereby save the day in their own way. There is a workaround for this problem people! It would just take a little more ingenuity on the author's part. It's such a shame that this episode in the trilogy suffers so badly from this plot device/character development as the rest of the story is tot [...]

    13. In this book, the sequel to The Cabinet of Wonders, Petra was really annoying and didn't seem to be the same Petra from the first book. Here she was much more stubborn and never listened to anything anyone told her. I loved the mysterious John Dee and just wanted to slap Petra when she would not listen to what he was telling her. Yeah he was a little shady, but couldn't she keep her mouth shut and learn to play his game? I still enjoyed the adventure, but several times I had to stop, because she [...]

    14. I'm about 1/3 into the book and absolutely enjoying it! Rutkoski writes original, fun fantasy with strong, original young characters. Woo!

    15. Following up the Cabinet of Wonders, Marie Rutkoski plots a wonderful mix of history and magical realism that I can't wait for my girls to read

    16. Uhhh So, I am kind of sad? Like ._.I adore the first book, alright. It's fun, with an original story and a world that's entertaining. The characters were good and the writing kinda cool. But this one is all over the place! It lacked the focus of the first one, and that's annoying.Like, in the first one it was:Petra: Must get my father's eyes!Neel: Must get money to leave!Now it's:Petra: (Chapter 1) Must leave before the prince arrives! (Chapter 2) Must leave and save my dad again! Must learn mag [...]

    17. HA! I knew Kit met bad news, I knew itm I knew it. I love it when I predict something and am right but like why Petra, why would you ever even like him? Also can we just have a minute for Neel (i think it was him who said it) when he was all like what kind of name is Kit, it reminds me of kittens and is very girly. I love him SO much. And he needs to start a life with Petra. I mean I love Tomic and all but Neel. I mean who was with Petra more than the entire book? NEEL! Not Tomik, I mean I actua [...]

    18. My name is John Dee, and I've rescued Petra from four Gray Men, the prince's assassins. I got confirmation from an air spirit that she's a chimera and has multiple powers, which makes her very special. I keep her in my home for her own protection, although she feels like she's in prison. I'm trying to solve the murder of an advisor to Queen Elizabeth, and I've agreed to a deal presented by young Petra. I've agreed to free her if she's able to uncover the murderer before I do; this should be amus [...]

    20. A good sequel. I was a little lost since its been a year since I read the first one, but that's my own fault of course. ;) I loved the characters, it was so great to see them again.

    21. Oh bother. Pop a great book in my hands and the day careens off course. Duties? What duties? Students? Ummm yep, I see 'em. Sort of. My nose sticks to the inner spine of a terrific book like a barnacle. Take "The Celestial Globe." Fingers twitch as they near the glossy green-covered novel that rests on my desk. Eventually, I stash it under my jacket sneak-reading every chance I get in-between library classes. In the evening, a pungent scent from my burnt dinner swirls in the air reminding me tha [...]

Her friend Tomik runs to her rescue too late, finding the headless corpses of four Gray Men and a [...]

    24. I've waited to read this book since discovering The Cabinet of Wonders last year. It was one of my absolute favourite reads of 2008. Adored it. Utterly.I'm thrilled to death. The sequel, The Celestial Globe, was worth the wait. The premise of this book starts up after the events of CoW. Petra Kronos still lives at the Sign of the Compass with her father, Mikal, and her talking tin spider, Astrophil. One day her home is set on fire and she is attacked and wounded, causing her to faint. When she a [...]
