Intriguing new series with a touch of Gaiman. The characters are sympatheticaly drawn and believable. Even the magic is believable. The pages turn themselves you become so engrossed. I had to order the second book before I finished the first!.

I enjoyed this the first one presumes of a new series by Kate Griffiths. The one reservation I have that it is very similar to The Midnight Mayor books so don't really see the point of referring it as new. Having said that it is very readable.

What can I say another entertaining story. An amazing imagination which rifles all the mythologies and pantheons for its heros and villains.

The first of many winners I am sure. Atticus and company entertain. As a hero a 2000 year old Druid takes some beating.

Kevin Hearne has a great hero on his hands. Atticus is up there with Harry Dresden in my top magical characters and who could not love his hound. Cant wait for the next one.

What a superb recording. Jarowski and the LPO at their best. His attention to detail is second to none and he always brings out the best in this highly talented orchestra. Having been lucky enough to be present when both recordings were made, the disc brings back good memories every time I play it. The 6th is one of my favourite Tchaikovski symponies, but I still rate Manfred another recording from the LPO and Jurowski as my very favourite.

The score arrived on time and in good condition. All I have to do now is practice it enough to be able to play it.

The feelings and emotions raised by this Dramatic Poem are alll that youcould wish.It is an exellent example of the pathos and romanticism one expects from Byron and one can see how Tchaikovsky could be moved to write his symphony of the same name.
While I applaud the fact that this poem has been rescued from printing obscurety by this edition and the cover is suitably glossy, I would have hoped for a slightly better quality from the printed page, with parts of text looking more like a photocopied page and a bad one at that , than an example of fine print. Having said that I still love it and it was delivered on time and in good condition.

Who could not love this evocative rendering of Tchaikovsy's tragic dark interpretation of Byron's dramatic poem Manfred, The LPO play with all the pathos and dramatic strength that they are capable of and Jurowski 's leadership has I think taken them to new heights. On the strength of this recording and also of the other Tchaikovski works that they have released with this exciting conductor, I beleive them to be, one of the best orchestra's around today.

I enjoyed it but am beginning to think it's time to finish the story. At least I assume that she intends to complete with another trilogy.
