Caro King has well developed characters and a great imagination in creating such greatness for her world, Nin our heroine, I loved her for her will to fight on, she wasn't lucky! she was a power all her own and boy did she prove that!

TAKE THAT STROOD! YOU GOT WHAT YOU DESERVED! [Insert spoilers here]  photo wcKZX.gif I loved how they found out who Simeon Dark was, that was a twister and Jonas, can't even begin to explain the shock I came to when i f

This stunning book is a brilliant sequel to 'Seven Soucerers' and creats amazing settings in the mind for the story to take place. With sudden twists and turns in the story it becomes addictive to the mind and is by far the best book I have ever read. In the first week I had it (which happens to be this week), I read it 3 times and I'm sure they'll be more. This story is unique, original, funny, adictive and is five star reading!! I hope Caro King writes more books set in the Drift, because ...more

De wereldopbouw van Caro King is gewoonweg geweldig. De Drift is zowel een mooie als een onheilspellende wereld, waar de meest onwerkelijke dingen gebeuren, de meest wonderbaarlijke en enge wezens wonen en waar niets is wat het lijkt. Veel van de personages uit de Zeven Magiërs zien we weer terug, maar we leren ook een paar nieuwe personages kennen. De personages zijn erg goed uitgewerkt en hebben allemaal hun ‘eigen ik’ en eigen aandeel in het ve

i felt like i was inside the book like i moved with the characters i loved everyone page and every thing that happened in the book. sometimes when your in the dark you find there is always light in the most darkest places and this book is like that with everyone dark patch there is a hero fighting in the light. and even the most strange characters can be hero's if the fight to be it. both seven sorcerers and shadow spell are amazing books you need to read them.

all my suspicions came to pass, and i'm glad jonas and skerridge had their happy endings. the bad guys got their just desserts and there is hope again for celidon. i do hope there will be further books on celidon and its folk as i'll miss reading this!

I love this book, true I was confused at some points in time and, Nin did get over Seth's death and her hand in his murder a little too quickly but I can write it off as there was more important things at hand.

I just wish there was at least one more book to this series.

More engaging than its prequel - that's to say, the prequel didn't keep me reading the last few pages when I really should have been getting ready for work (#howdoyouadult). I liked the range of invention and the way the threads through both books are pulled together for a satisfying conclusion.

Okay, I have to admit that I didn't actually read the whole thing. I got past the blood-grown tiger-man & decided it wasn't for me. I did cheat & read the ending, though....

This was a fun two book series. Interesting plot, a little magic, lots of weird creatures - a pleasant way to pass the time at softball today.
