I am surprised to see that I am the first to review this book. On the other hand, I can understand that it may not be a book that is widely known. Anyhow, This book is a fascinating tale of a small race of beings that have been forced to seperate themselves from humans, who have over time, forgotten they have existed. Now their exsistance is in jeporady and in their quest, must rely on the help of humans. It is quite a book, and I am sorry to say I have not read the followin two of the trilogy. However, keep in mind that this trilogy was meant to be read all the way through...there is not much closure to their events at the end of the book, as their travels are continued straight into the next book.
