I loved the Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen series, but was really disappointed by this book, which appears to be trying to squeeze extra money out of the original books.
There is only one story about the Old Kingdom, which was so short that you were just getting into the book when it ended, which left you feeling very short changed. The rest of the stories I found pretty dull and only read because I was hoping for something special to appear at some point.
