    Not Nix's Best

    One of the elements of writing in this genre that Nix is particularly gifted at is creating original fantasies and worlds. This series is no exception. However, in comparison to some of his other works, especially The Abhorsen Trilogy, the exploration of this world and the characters within is weak at best. The story is interesting because Nix presents the audience with a new mythology, but he rushes through the plot, circumnavigating what could be some really amazing explorations of the world he's created. As a result, it's more difficult to imagine this parallel universe and its characters and creatures, and it doesn't draw the reader in nearly as much as it could.
    This series breaks one large story into several books, and since each of these is easily around the high 100s and low 200s in page length, Nix could have spent more time giving description, metaphors, and poetic/aesthetic language to flush this world out. This would make everything significantly more engaging for the readers, and ultimately, foster growth and interest in the books, the fantasy, the world, and the characters therein. Ultimately, there's just nothing to bite into. -Lindsey Miller, www.lindseyslibrary.com

    Aenir book 3

    In the third, Tal and Milla subconsciously travel into another world to find a shadow in order to fight off their newfound enemy thus secretly in order to not be caught until they have accomplished what they've set out to do.

    Great Break from Harry Potter

    This series The Seventh Tower is one of the best I've read. Garth Nix keeps you hanging and wanting to read more. I've read the first three of the series and I find myself searching for next book in the series every time I finish a book just as J.K. Rowling does with the Harry Potter series. Garth Nix's The Seventh Tower series is great and a very interesting, fantastic, and captivating break from Harry Potter. I thing you'll enjoy The Seventh Tower Series if you have read Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia books.

    I Also Recommend:

    Good

    Based on the ice looking setting, at least from the old cover, did anyone think of that video for Whenever Wherever by Shakira, imagining it setting wise for Aenir while reading this? ....Just me then? Yeah I get random like that sometimes. Anyway, in secret, Tal and Milla travel to Aenir in search for shadows in saving both their worlds. Subconsciously anyway, leaving their bodies behind back at the castle. Will the two find what there looking for? Allies or foes? Mostly going by memories with these reviews for the books. But recalled being a little bored at times with this one. But when it got good, it well, got good. The new cover for this one is really good by the way.

    The Star rating says it all!

    All in all, this is a great book which I would recommend to most people. This must-read book is the prequel to The Seventh Tower: The Fall, and ever since the first book came out many readers have been waiting for the next book. In all the anticipation and tension, I believe that many people are very pleased with what Garth Nix has done with his The Seventh Tower series.

    Aeneirian creatures awsome

    This book was full of adventure, intensity, and courage. I really like when Tal and Milla get the codex out of coldstone mountain just in time. If you like magic, sourcery, and a great story, this book is for you!
