This review is from: The Dark Lord Of Derkholm (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Awful. Trite, twee, irritating and not funny. Even the plot is entirely linear and dull. By the end I still hadn't a clue which Griffin was which, because their characters were so unremarkable. The humans were equally dull. And as for the comedy family interaction, something she normally does so well, it was laboured and heavy and clunking. A great pity, not just because she is capable of so much better than this, but because the premise was a good one - but entirely wasted.
