      Originally posted at Paperback Wonderland.I've re-read this book (and the others in this series) so many times my paperbacks are starting to look pitiful. Honestly, I don't understand how this book isn't topping all bestseller's lists, is it lack of promotion? I really don't know and it bothers me because the universe Ysabeau S. Wilce created is so amazing, so flawless, so addictive Her characters are just perfect, her plots -- look I'm a picky bitch and I cannot find a fault! For the love of wh [...]

      fun and surprisingly harsh YA fantasy novel, that takes place in a world unlike any other YA fantasy novel I've ever read. plus, the main character fucks up a lot and everything does not all work out all happy for her, which is kind of refreshing for a change.

    • Alethea A says:

      If you can get past some of the cutesy language (like "choco sandwies" and other things that end in -ie that eventually I got sick of encountering) you'll find a fun adventure with a little (well, rather plump actually) girl who's on her way to finding her place in the world. Flora Segunda (a "replacement" daughter, as the first Flora in the family was lost in the War) is getting ready for her Catorcena--and not doing a great job of it, what with having to do all the chores and look after crazy [...]

    • JM says:

      This is either YA or children's fantasy, but I can't really make up my mind which. Flora, called Segunda because there was another Flora, who was a good deal more perfect but died, lives in Crackpot Hall, one of the four magickal Great Houses in the city. She struggles to keep the decrepit house from falling apart, to keep her messed up father from destroying the kitchen, and to write the speech for her Catorcena - her all-important fourteenth birthday, when she becomes legally an adult. Mostly, [...]

      I'm not sure why I wasn't in love with this book the way everyone else seems to be. The setting was pretty imaginative and I did want to find out what was going on with the backstory and current political events etc, but somehow I couldn't get into it. One problem may have been that it is written with a sort of preciousness that I have noted as increasingly common in tween fastasy, which may be an attempt to emulate the tone of some Edwardian and Late Victorian children's literature; however, th [...]

    • Kaethe says:

      Very satisfying. Can't wait to read the sequel.***2009 September 20I don't think the Possum loved this as much as I have, but oh, my, how I love this.A steampunk world without rigid gender roles but with magick. A book about a girl turning 14 who doesn't want to join the army like her perfect elder sister, and who is sick of holding together the crumbling 11,000-room family home.

    • Margaret says:

      As the book opens, Flora Fyrdraaca is supposed to be writing a speech for her fourteenth birthday party, wherein she will celebrate her wonderful family, house, and future. The problem is, she doesn't think any of them are all that wonderful. Her house used to be a Great House, until her mother banished the magickal Butler; now it has eleven thousand rooms and only one bathroom. There are only four Fyrdraacas left: Flora herself, her crazy father, her military mother, who's never home, and her s [...]

    • Res says:

      The one where Flora accidentally reawakens the elemental spirit who serves as a butler, tries to rescue him, tries to rescue a heroine's sidekick, and then has to rescue herself. I've read and adored Wilce's stories of Hardhands and Tiny Doom, and that was what I really wanted to read. This story apparently takes place at least a generation later than those stories. I'm struggling a bit to be fair and not downgrade it for not being some other book than the book it is.It's a fairly standard prete [...]

    • Oyceter says:

      I don't think this is quite like anything I've read for a while. It's got wonderfully bizarre worldbuilding and great prose: I'd rec this to anyone who enjoyed Mary Poppins or Peter Pan (the books! not the movies!).Full review: oycetervejournal/627770

    • Ben Babcock says:

      What a seriously impressive and original young adult fantasy novel. The name alone, Flora Segunda of Crackpot Hall, promises a whimsical adventure. But it’s hard to describe just how quickly Ysabeau Wilce pulls the rug from beneath the reader, removing any possibility of normality and dragging us into a fantastic world where anything can happen—but that doesn’t mean it will.Flora’s world is one where magic is real and a part of daily life, but it’s rather unfashionable. She lives in a [...]

    • Snarktastic Sonja says:

      I've postponed writing this review because I wasn't sure what to rate it. Since it inspired me to read a different book and I liked this one more and rated that one 3, I settled on 4 for this one.This book reminded me of A Wrinkle in Time. Not sure why - probably the age range of the protagonist. This is also what threw off my rating. I was just not really sure how much I enjoyed reading a book about a 13 year old. Evidently, more than I realized. I do keep thinking about this one and will very [...]

    • Heather Turner says:

      This was amazingere are not enough words to tell of the awesomeness of this title. Although others find it muddled and a bit schizophrenicI did not find it to be the case. I do not know if everyone can appreciate the nature of the tale. But I found it to be unique in a world of YA literature that just all feels the same. Flora is strong and NOT ANGSTYwhich is rare. Her sidekick is amusing and full of life. Characterizationsg. Plot is good and surprising. Characters are multi-leveled with no one [...]

    • Parisa says:

      I couldn't wait to be done with this book but it kept going and going. Flora Segunda was around 400 pages long, and I'm not sure it really needed to be that long. Not much happened. I was intrigued with all the talk of Flora wanting to be a Ranger and then stumbling upon a Ranger. And that particular story-line, at least in this first book, fell flat. Instead the book focused on her loss of Will. Also interesting, but not what I was expecting or hoping for. It seems like maybe this book was just [...]

    • sjams says:

      I fell in love with the description - it sounds like a magical world, full of wonder, where you always find something new with the thousand rooms. But then the story really doesn't talk about that much. More like the mundane life of the girl who lives there, then how she takes on a problem. There is not nearly enough magic in it for my taste, especially in a world so situated in magic! Does she never wonder how or why she can wield magic? That's what would be the most interesting to me.The world [...]

      Flora lives in a huge, crumbling house with her dogs, horses, and the mad Poppy. Her fourteenth birthday is coming up, when she'll become an adult and join the army, as all of her family has done before her. But Flora is round as a dumpling and likes reading adventure stories more than fighting, and she'd rather learn to be a sneaky spy than a magic-less soldier. When she stumbles upon the secret to her house's decrepitude, she embarks upon an adventure that will forever alter the state of her f [...]

    • Nannah says:

      This book has such potential to be a fun, magical story for young adults, but the racism and ableism really ruined the experience for me.Book content warnings: ableism!racismFlora's world is a parallel universe set in what's probably California, USA (Califa). World building relies heavily on the author's past training as a military historian, and although that's very admirable, I'm still a bit side-eying the decision to fill a fictional world, where an author has total power over, with cultures [...]

    • l. says:

      it's dull tbh. read dwj instead.

    • Melissa McShane says:

      I love this book so much--it's got a quirky, interesting main character, a unique style, great alternate history, and Wilce knows how to end a book with a zinger that's half cliffhanger and half electric shock.The Republic of Califa, Flora's home, recently lost a war with the Huitzil Empire--officially they're a "client state," but their independence is a fragile thing--in which Flora's father was captured, convicted of war crimes, and tortured into madness. It's Flora's job to watch over him, d [...]

    • Yue says:

      I liked the book; the good stuff were pretty good and the bad stuff pretty bad. It started out great; I thought I was going to love it, but slowly it went downhill."Yes" to:- Magical. The world created had enough magic for me to be very satisfied. I love the butlers (the detizens). Valefor was the kind of character that I enjoy to meet in Fantasy books. He was kind of a Califer: attached magically to the house. He could do anything and be the perfect butler; he was a bit of a complainer but he w [...]

    • Nafiza says:

      I’ve been meaning to write a review for this for ages. Flora Segunda is a middle grade/early teen novel that takes on surprisingly complex themes in a deliberately light manner that serves to delineate the importance of the themes under discussion. Flora lives in a world where there are Great Houses whose sentient form manifests itself in the form of a butler. There is a dual world, magic and predetermined destiny – of Flora’s mother has anything to say about it. Flora is one of those char [...]

    • Lightreads says:

      Check it out, it’s fantasy not Europe! As opposed to fantasy not!Europe, I mean. Young adult story of thirteen-year-old Flora’s magical exploits in alternate, militarized California.You know how sometimes a young adult book can surprise you with its subtlety, its emotional complexity and maturity springing from a simple story? Yeah, this one went exactly the opposite direction: from a rich, textured, fascinating background world, and a well-drawn familial mess, and a lot of interesting polit [...]

    • colleen the convivial curmudgeon says:

      3.5A fun and charming story with a young girl protagonist (13, going 14) who is a strong and likable character. She suffers from the plague that such characters tend to have - generally neglectful but loving parents - but the parents in this one are at least present to an extent and not entirely useless as in some other series of the same ilk.The other characters are interesting and generally likable, and the world itself is both strange and familiar, being loosely based on 18th Century traits a [...]

    • N. Anderson says:

      I, while reading this book, enjoyed it, although I would not, unless someone was looking for such a book, recommend it. It was not predictable, which is found all to often in books, and even though it did have a little of the main character making stupid mistakes, it did not remove from the experience. I seemed not to look forward to picking it up, but once I had started to read, found myself not wanting to put it down. Altogether it was very odd, and even though the writing style was also diffe [...]

    • Ealaindraoi says:

      This is an amazing first novel, and I hope the first of many set in this world. One often hears of young adult fantasy novels touted as the "Next Harry Potter", this is the first novel I've read in a long time that truly could be. The world of the Republic of Califa is so positively dense with a fully realized society withpolitical structure and intrigue, wars and religion, different cultures, races and magical creatures with complicated alliances to humans. All this and wonderfully quirky chara [...]

    • Nicole Pramik says:

      I wanted badly to enjoy this novel as it seemed to be chocked full of interesting characters and environments. Likewise, I've always had a liking for stories set chiefly in houses, especially with the promise of discovering something magical or even dangerous behind every door. Granted, Flora Segunda held a great deal of promise for me but, ultimately, fell a bit flat and caused me to lose interest.Based on its story description, I had envisioned some sort of crossover between Alice's Adventures [...]

    • Cait says:

      I really loved the world-building here, but it took me a while to warm to the characters. In fact, I appreciate Flora in this book more as the starting point of a series heroine than as the protagonist of this book alone; I had the first and second books in hand together and read them back-to-back, which definitely helped the first book.A couple of nice points:* I do love fantasy worlds which actually have gender equality in careers.* Women wear stays instead of bras! And nobody at all wears pan [...]

    • Crystal says:

      What a delightful book! I almost give it 5 starsybe it's more like 4.5. Flora was a spunky, sturdy girl who cared more about adventure than her appearance, who loved her family despite their brokenness and selfishness, and who cared for the animals and home she lived in almost by herself, and mostly without complaining. Meeting Valefore the butler puts her finally on an adventure all of her own, a fun, interesting, exciting one. There was even a touch of time travel to the story line, and I didn [...]

    • Madeline says:

      I get the feeling I would have loved Wilce's Flora Segunda if I had read it when I was still in the target age group. There's a heavy dose of whimsy that turns a bit sour if you've reached the saturation point - like, I've already seen a Zooey Deschanel movie this month, okay? - and it can be difficult to get past the up-to-my-eyeballs-in-this-already feeling if you don't have the literary flexibility and willingness to experiment (open-mindedness, okay, I said it) that I had as a teenage reader [...]

    • Jess says:

      I really really wanted to love Flora Segunda. It's got a lot of things going for it. There's the setting: a fantasy world that seems to be a strange version of California with an old-world feel, where magical butlers that run the great houses of the city (and who doesn't love a magical butler?) There's a lot of atmosphere, and a sense of more history and past intrigue than has been uncovered yet. Then there are the characters - Flora Segunda (we never find out quite what happened to the first Fl [...]

    • Eilonwy says:

      I am seriously stumped as to how to summarize this book. Flora is just short of 14 and provides rollicking narration as she describes the adventures that take place during the two or so weeks preceding her Catorcena -- her fourteenth birthday, when she will be recognized as an adult, and will have to choose a direction in life. She does indeed live in an eleven-thousand room house (they don't all seem to be in the same dimension at the same time), with a spirit "denizen" or Butler, as do many of [...]
