So many fantasy type books seem to be about the lead character's special powers/talking to animals/wonderful talents or involve battles of "good" against an "evil" that has no other motive than to be evil, so it was refreshing to read a book that was about very real people and the battles they face, with the fantasy aspect of the book being background rather than the whole point of the story.
Can't wait to read "The Cup of the World" which I've not read yet!
