Ooooh, I love this one! The start might be a bit of a turn-off - to my sister at least, hahaha - but as the story goes further, it absorbs me more and more. Wynne-Jones always amazes me with her ideas, and this one's also very unique. I'm still thinking of how to translate 'farm' like in 'Dillian farms law & order'. 'Dillian mengangon hukum dan ketertiban'? XD

My favourite characters are Torquil, Hathaway, and Quentin. I also love the whole Sykes family! This is an amazing fantasy story that tells about, among many others but I think one of the most important things, how a family stays together. There are rows, there are anger and sadness - Wynne-Jones does not shy away from them - but there are solutions and reconciliation (oh... except for maybe... nevermind, I'll be spoiling).
