After a period travelling in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia in 1993, he left publishing to work as a marketing communications consultant . In 1999 he was lured back to the publishing world to become a part-time literary agent. He now lives in Sydney, a five-minute walk from Coogee Beach, with his wife Anna, son Thomas, and lots of books.

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.

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.

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.
