I read this book because it was the sequel to Soothsayer, but I think I was a lot less interested in it once I realized it took place after Penelope was already an adult. (I like books about super-special children. They're fun.) I remember beginning to read the book and seeing that Penelope now lived apparently by herself sitting around choosing futures by seeing which possible futures exist and then making the one she wants a reality by moving in a certain way--as in, she might see three futures, and in one of them her head is down, in one of them her hand is up, and in another one she's standing. She'll choose which one she wants by moving to the position she sees in association with that future. It's not something I've seen before but it feels kind of weak as a way of controlling reality, since it's not like she actually gets to pick what happens in the futures--she just gets multiple choice. What I remember most about this book was that the protagonist might as well have been a stone for all the emotion she had, and it could have been intentional (because I could imagine the way her ability works kind of turning her into a robot), but regardless, I didn't really want to read about her. I also remember that everyone in existence was scared of her, and that was handled well but of course contributed to her being off-putting. In any case, I don't remember much about the plot, just the concept, and I think that's why I decided not to read any more of the series; I wasn't into it.
