2012 book 299

Juliet Marillier's Cybele's Secret
The sequel to Wildwood Dancing involves one of the sisters from the previous book accompanying their merchant father on a trip to Constantinople to try and buy a mysterious ancient artifact. Also there is a pirate. This one is kind of a slow starter--the real action doesn't start till halfway through--and as usual the characters are too clueless to pick up on plot points that are obvious to the reader. But I liked the inevitable happy ending despite myself. B/B+.
