More like 3.75 stars.Fun read, crazy family. Witches, wizards and dragons. And scary all-powerful grannies and aunties. One warning - this family doesn't share the current taboo aboout cousins having relationships. Didn't know about that before I started the book. Caught me off guard, I admit, but I just figured 100 years ago, this was pretty common behavior, so I got over it. Lots of sex in this one (its related to their magic), but it's of the fade to black variety. It all came together, though, and ended up being a really interesting story.
