Characterized by magic, multiple universes, witches and wizards—and a charismatic nine-lived enchanter—her books were filled with unlimited imagination, dazzling plots, and an effervescent sense of humor that earned her legendary status in the world of fantasy.

    It is awesome!

    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.

    the plot was amazing, writing not so much

    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

    The most fascinating novel I've read in a long time

    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!
