Not brilliant. The author is trying too hard and it comes off as as bit slapstick (which is not my bag). I'm not really inclined to read the others in the series.
A fantastic book! Relatively easy to read (saying a lot for some 19th century literature) and the sheer imagination involved given the time is, at times, breathtaking.
In this final book in the trilogy, the author goes into more depth as to how magic works, philosophises about the nature of balance and pulls together some earlier themes and events.
Again, this is very easy to read but I found the ending a bit of an anticlimax. I kept expecting the overall title of the trilogy (Delver Magic) to be explained more but it wasn't, leaving me with a feeling that there should be still more to come. There were also a lot more typos/spelling mistakes in this volume than I noticed in the previous ones. Having said that, it's still a pleasant enough way to burn a few hours. It's just a shame that some of the ideas weren't explored a bit more.
In this second book of the saga, the author examines some of the upheaval and chaos that the return of magic to Uton has caused. Once again from the word go, his easy writing style makes the story accessible and highly readable. There are a few places where he seems to conclude the action a bit too soon to my view (for example, I would have liked it if we had seen more of the magic users effects on the Lacobian Desert). Having said that, if you're looking for a pleasant, easy read to top up your fantasy-loving quota, this is definitely worth your time.
