it was amazing

One of my favorite series (so far, since there are only two books out now), the first one is really a set up for the rest of the series. In the beginning, especially at the scene with the lighthouse, I hesitated to continue but discovered that the book was actually truly entertaining. There is a constant stream of bizarre and interesting characters as well as the introduction to a very different sort of fantastical world. Its not another Harry Potter teen series or Wonderland. Its more of a darker take on a new concept. Heed my warning though, Clive Barker is a particularly slow writer. I hope he reads that comment...
