The characters come alive, and are are so distinct that the narration fades into the background and a vivid play is performed within ones imagination and Alderley Edge, the Svarts, Colin, Susan, Gowther, Bess, the Dwarves and Cadelin appear before you.

Same scene..Show More »ry and Colin was the main character but very much different story to other two books in Weirdstone trilogy, not what I was expecting. Despite this I can't say I didn't enjoy the book.
