Because this series is in the fantasy genre, I was reluctant to take it up. However, because it is based in modern times, is extremely well written and the characters are very well defined, including the non human ones, I found it most absorbing. I could not wait to find out the rest of this intriguing tale so bought all three in the series and read them one after the other. However, I think there may be more to come and look forward to reading more from this gifted author. I would recommend this series to most of my friends but warn them that they may not be able to stop reading once they have started!
I loved this series. The characters are strong and punchy -the sort of friends you'd love to have and the story is truly unique. The locations are amazing and add depth and richness. This isn't a story you've read a dozen different versions of. I loved it and would highly recommend it and the rest of the series to someone looking for an addictive read.
I bought the series in paperback first and everyone in our home read all 3. My 12 year old granddaughter was entranced and my 72 year old husband fascinated. Everyone in between bought their own copies and loved them too.
Some times the middle book in a trilogy seems lacking you all ready know the characters and the story can seem like a filler until you reach the final chapter. That was not the case here. I was engrossed from start to finish. Characters I thought I knew grew and developed. There were twists and turns a plenty. A thoroughly enjoyable read.
