Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sophisticated readers in pre and early teens should lap up this and other volumes in this magnificent fantasy quartet. But is has much to offer others too. `Flaxfield' is a late quartet: Beethoven, Janacek, Faure. Like that music it makes demands, but it is none the worse for it. Quality writing always requires active reading; this very much so. Its consequent rewards are immeasurable. Its feel reminds me very much of Le Guin's `Earthsea', the late books: `Tehanu', `The Other Wind'. It is fiction for the elderly as well as for the young; for the 13-year-old with greying hair. Its terse and sometimes enigmatic dialogue resonates richly with late Garner: `Red Shift', `The Stone Book', `Boneland'. It is none the worse for it. It draws on many precursors, but is completely itself. It is enthralling. It is lyrical. It is sometimes uncomfortable, always beautiful. It is ultimately consoling. It is magical. It is a masterpiece.

No spoilers here but what a wonderful end to a beautifully created tale. All four books are a delight, slightly darker and more literary than Harry Potter. Both myself and my 8 year old were mesmerized from start to finish.
