Absolutely Terrific!, 3 Jun 2007
When I first picked up 'The Gift' I was immediately wowed by the complete fantasy that it is. 'The Gift' uses old faerie tales and legends (such as the will o' the wisps that Maerad is told not to follow and the Ice King from Hans Christian Anderson)and spins them completely anew. Alison Croggon has amazing potential that she exuberates in this book and I'm pleased to say that I am more than 100% glad that I picked up these books and I am anticipating Ms. Croggon's final installment, 'The Singing'.
