Fine Fantasy!, 28 Feb 2007
The Gift is in my opinion one of the finest fantasy novels I've read (and I've read quite a few!) The way Alison Croggon describes the world of Pellinor and its characters is unique, entertaining and enthralling. The action, adventure and passion of the main plot and its many subplots pulls you in and keeps you reading right until the very last page and keeps you gasping for more. It gives you the impression of a personal relationship with each character and whether good or evil you love to read more of them. This book and the two sequels that have been released so far are truly great works of literature and I wait with bated breath for the final instalment of the fantasy filled world of Pellinor.
