This is really a beautiful combination of imaginative world creation (a la Tolkien), amazing artwork and good storytelling. I also just finished the second one, and together I would call these books a masterpiece. The paintings in this are a pivotal part of the story. They speak deeply to me, and bring a depth and reality to the world the author created that really cannot be conveyed in words. Outstanding. Highly recommended for all ages.
