Egmont, 2011. ISBN: 9781405253420.
(Age: 12+) Recommended. What is the point of falling in love with a man if he turns back into a ferret when the moon goes down? Ondine's summer is turning out to be very eventful. When she discovers that her talking pet ferret is actually a gorgeous boy trapped under a witch's spell, she knows she has to help him.
But then other things get in the way. An assassination plot is uncovered, a long-lost treasure discovered, and Ondine meets the devastatingly handsome son of the duke.
Will Ondine ever have time to find the spell that will turn her beloved back into a human?
This book has a great storyline going but I felt as if it was a bit repetitive; don't get me wrong one of the best stories I've ever read, but a bit over explanatory. Over all a good book but if you get frustrated easily, not highly recommended but still recommended.
