Ice Moon by Jan Costin Wagner

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
"I did enjoy this book, and there was a lot of amusement derived from its light and dated tone, but it did begin to feel like a slog after a series of fast books. I look forward to watching the impeccably cast series."

“No one expected me. Everything awaited me.”

Terry Pratchett
“Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett, Jingo

Nancy Pearl
“If you're 50 years old or younger, give every book about 50 pages before you decide to commit yourself to reading it, or give it up.

If you're over 50, which is when time gets shorter, subtract your age from 100 - the result is the number of pages you should read before deciding whether or not to quit. If you're 100 or over you get to judge the book by its cover, despite the dangers in doing so.”

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
