Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
This version of the "Tower" series is a reissue of an interesting experiment between Lucasfilms and the Australian fantasy/futurist writer Garth Nix. Unlike many "packaged" book projects, this does not obscure the author's voice; Nix is a good enough craftsman to retain his voice throughout the sprawling adventures of the two fourteen-year-olds questing on behalf of their separate civilizations. Book 5 of this seven-part epic pulls together most of the scattered plots and subplots that weakened Book 4. Milla is now War-Chief of the Icecarls, and we find her fretting upon an uncomfortable throne at the entrance to the castle of the Chosen. She wants to lead her people into battle against the dangerous Spiritshadows revolting within, but will the Crones who are trying to control her mind allow this? Meanwhile, Tal of the Chosen finds he must return to Aenir to report the dire situation to the Empress. Both kids mature remarkably as events escalate. Now, dear readers, you may root for a genuine hero and heroine. Bring on Book 6! Reviewer: Kathleen Karr

Looks like Gabrielle from Xena Warrior Princess on the old cover. Or so I thought when I first read this. Anyway, this one was a little different as we had Tal and Milla deal with stuff separately. Back home, Milla is gathering everyone who can help with the fight against their enemy. Another favorite of amine that shows how awesome Milla was. Or so I remembered. She's still one of my favorite book characters. Liked the back and forth between the two. You get an idea on what's their situation and etc. Yet another good sequel.

This book was so good, I couldn't keep my eyes off the pages, I read it in an hour! Soooooooo gooood... Too bad there isn't any romance between Tall and Milla, I thought that there would be, don't you? I think that there would be in future books, though.

The book is absolutely awesome. I only found out about it through an excerpt in the back of one of my other books, and it was so interesting I just had to buy it. Now I have the whole series, and each one is creative, well written, and just plain amazing.

This book is so exciting you can just sit there for hours on end without thinking about how much pages you have read. The author seems to suck you in as though he is using vacume and you are just a piece of lint. It makes you want to do anything to read the next book. But it puts you on edge when they switch back and fourth to Milla and Tal and their adventures every chapter. I really recommend this book for the people that have already read the last 4 books.

These books are the best. I read 3 and 4 in one day i couldn't keep my eyes off the pages. Even when it was time for supper. Garth Nix is an excellent writer. Even though I haven't really read this book from the other reviews and the other books it sounds really good. All the other books were.

I am a picky reader, I don't like very many books. This book is a lot different I love this book, there is great suspense and left turns. Reading this book can be addictive.
