A beautiful, beautiful book,
This review is from: The Forgotton Beasts of Eld (Paperback)
I first read this book many years ago, and then managed to lose my copy of it. I rebought it recently, and I was afraid that perhaps being older and more critical it might not be as good as I remembered. I had no need to fear; for sheer beauty of writing, evoking all that is best in fairy stories in a truly original way, I honestly don't think I've ever read anything better. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to read fantasy with a sense of wonder again, with both the magic and the powerful emotions of the characters, light and dark, coming through strongly.
