really liked it
bookshelves: short-stories, fantasy, 2009

The Abhorsen universe story that begins this collection was really a lot of fun. I've always really liked Nicholas, being a skeptic myself. It's a great story in its own right, but I'm still longing for the Old Kingdom and more stories of the Charter.

I was pleased to find that I enjoyed the author's writing in other worlds as well. I think the Arthurian stories were my favorite of the collection (probably because I am not at all well versed in the traditional legends), with "The Hill" and "Three Roses" close behind. The Choose-Your-Own-Adventure tale proved that I am really a major dork in that I actually pulled up an online dice emulator to move through the plot honestly (and was victorious!).
