This is an excellent book for all ages, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an enthralling read. If you enjoy reading Lord of the Rings, this is for you. It has action, a touch of romance, and most of all, characters who touch the inner depths of your soul. The intricate layout and sequences are well thoughtout and the characters are portrayed beautifuly, as Lloyd Alexander delves deep into each ones personality and each ones personal strife and struggles.
I have read The Pyrdain Chronicles and the Westmark series, and even though the endings are a bit sad, I really fell in love with all the books. I definitely reccomend it to EVERYBODY!!
