Christopher Chant is young and witty, and ready to face the challenges that await him. But when he moves into the infamous Chrestomanci castle will it change his entire outtake on life? Find out for yourself by reading this enticing book!

The luring plot does not make up for the poor writing...it seems like she wrote this book for high school audiences but the poor writing makes it more of an elementary school book...just being honest

I loved this book. It totally is as good and maybe better than all five of the Harry Potter books. I would definately recommend this book to anyone.

I found this novel and started reading it right after I bought it. I continued reading it until I finished it. The next day I read it again. I have read at least fifteen of Jones's books and I love all of them. A more perfect fantasy writer cannot be found anywhere. Christopher is great and cricket rules!
