A truly wonderful book that delivered on its promise to be a bit darker with a bit more at stake!

Wonderful characters with lives outside the book!

My only wish is to spend more time with these characters and understand more about them and there history together. I do have three books left, actually four if I count the collection of short stories. I eagerly await to spend more time in this world though it is with a heavy heart that I creep closer to having to leave it.

Taran is definitely showing signs of growing up in this book. My only real criticism is that things sometimes feel as though they are happening so fast in the book mostly because it isn't very long and Alexander keeps the plot moving at a rather rapid pace.

Wonderful wonderful book!

On to the next:-)

Lloyd Alexander gave the indication that things would start to get a bit darker as Taran starts to grow up. Lovely. I am even more excited for the rest of the series now."
