The Morning Star 03/21/11
The Morning Star is the last episode of Nick Bantock's Griffin and Sabine epistolary series. This book focuses mostly on Dr. Mattheson and his fiancée and how their lives and their romance parallels that of the original two.
I have mixed feelings about this final book. Four characters is nearly too many to handle for a story told through postcards and letters. On the other hand their discoveries help explain the magical nature of Griffin and Sabine's relationship.
The book was also part of an internet based contest. These sorts of picture pictures seem to go hand in hand now with contests. I wish they wouldn't. I wish the books would just be left alone to be fun, self-contained mysteries and not temporary gimmicks.
