Mar 2001 Seventh Tower (Book 2)

Second title in fantasy adventure series, THE SEVENTH TOWER, from bestselling author, Garth Nix. In the Dark World, society is ranked according to colour clans and the most precious commodity is light. In all the world there is only one place that ever sees the sun, a seven-towered castle on a mountain high above the desolate ice lands below.

Tal, a Chosen, and Milla, an Icecarl, have been thrown together on a dangerous quest to gain a Sunstone. They must reach the Castle of the Seven Towers, home for Tal, but a dangerous and strange place for Milla.

From the deadly Hall of Nightmares to the magical chambers of Tal's great-uncle Ebbitt, they must navigate the Castle without being discovered. Sinister forces are conspiring against them and it will take all their strength just to survive…

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Original, First Class 1 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Castle picks up where the previous book left off, with Tal attempting to find not one but two sunstones. One for himself and one for the icecarls. Gart Nix is a tremendously imaginative author. His Abhorsen series is second to none, and this series is totally different except in that it is also a cracking good read in an imaginative fantasy world unlike any other.

This series is perhaps written for a slightly younger age group than the Abhorsen books, but it can be enjoyed by all ages (I speak as a very mature reader... well older reader anyway).

The books are fast paced, and this novel develops some of the themes that were clearly hinted at in the start of the series. We still do not know how the world got to be as it is, but it is clear we will find out. There are also some delicious plots and intrigues building.

Like nearly all of Garth Nix's output, these are excellent books and thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Read 24 July 2010
Format:Paperback
I was first introduced to Garth Nix through his "Keys to the Kingdom" series and thoroughly enjoyed all seven books in the series (although we had to wait a long time for the final book to be published). So I thought I'd give the tower series a try and I'm very glad I did so. Although ostensibly written as a childrens book, it's a cracking good read which will also satisfy any adult who enjoys this genre and I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series, read em from the start! 24 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
As much is this is aimed at teenagers, it's still a great quick easy read for adults too. If life is stressful and you want a little bit of escape-ism that takes little effort to figure plot lines etc, then this is your bag.
