The world building in this book is awesome. Responsible of Brightwater must go on a quest. She must be careful of Grannies. She must be careful of her magic. She must be careful of flying mules because they lack powder rooms.

While the plot could use a tend more development, this is a very, very, clever fantasy and modern fairy tale. It is rather a very magical book.

Bettie☯ Sounds a little Pterry-esque

Chris Not really. The humor isn't there. There's humor but not only Terry Pratchett. She reminds me of Peter S. Beagle.

David I read this trilogy way back when and have been meaning to give it a reread.
