When I was younger I read a ton of books, and it is impossible for me to remember all their names. It's very frustrating to only remember pieces of a book, and to have no way of finding it again, which is a problem I frequently encounter.

This was one of those books I started reading and instantly remembered. I love puzzles, so that might be part of it, but I also could identify with the characters' feelings of loneliness and wanting to escape from their problems - then again, who hasn't? I honestly found this book much better written than Steel Magic, the first in the series, if only because Norton draws upon more than Arthurian legend to create her stories, and she always has some interesting cultural backgrounds going on in them; for example, George's brother Shaka and the 'back to Africa' movement.

One of the recurring themes that you see again and again in Norton's work is the power of books... which is not really surprising, since she was a rather prolific author.
