I love and I mean love the Weirdstone but this was struggling to recapture the magic and I found it rushed, almost as if it were planed to be a longer book which was rushed into print prematurely. Having said that there are one or two passages of description which I liked, but not enough to redeem the book I am afraid.

Wonderful writing, reader's intonation a problem

I managed to get about a quarter of the way into the book, which is a wonderful piece of lyrical writing, evocative and insightful. The reader is excellent in many ways but has a bi-tonal intonation that once I heard, I could not ignore. Most sentences start, rise and then fall noticeably and the effect was too intrusive for me to continue.

If this does not bother you (I may be a freak?) then this is a wonderful book.

A book of our time and all time

very good performance, well researched and written but as I have read many account previously, this only added a little to what I had already read.

So if you are new to the story - it is excellent
if not then it will be enjoyable rather than revalatory.

Moving and uplifting

I have read just about everything the author has written, this throws a poignant sidelight on these earlier writings. An uplifting book with a fascinating twist at the end.

Highly enjoyable and very well narrated. Be warned the story is the first part of a longer saga but nonetheless I thrroughly enjoyed it.
