it was amazing
Read from March 31 to April 14, 2010

This has been the most amazing series to listen to. I've really enjoyed the world(s) Garth Nix created, especially the non-human characters and systems of magic. I want to be a charter mage.

Other the incredible language, including the beauty of the storytelling, I really have to say, I loved the incredible balance of gender that is either absent or awkwardly heavy-handed in a lot of the fantasy I've read. Nix is like a modern day Tolkien (with a better sense of humor).

I'll be thinking about this series for a very long time, and happily.
