Definitely a great read. Nod is such a richly imagined world. The richly described forest stirs the imagination, while there always seem to be multiple layers or magic at play. At times the different human factions confused me a bit. The three main characters grow and become more and more engaging as the book goes on. I hope to see more of their lives outside of chasing desperate quests in the later books. This promises to be a really good series.
