5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Diana Wynne Jones, 24 Oct. 2000
This review is from: The Year Of The Griffin (Paperback)
I was delighted when I heard a sequel of Dark Lord of Derkholm would be coming out, and was not let down. At first I was slightly disappointed because I thought Blade, a fantastic character, would not be appearing but then he did! Comparisons to Harry Potter/ JK Rowling are often made, but I think Jones was the original and best, funnier, cleverer and fantastic for children and adults alike. If you liked Terry Pratchett before he started churning out books like it was going out of fashion, give Jones a try, you'll never look back! The title makes it sound like one of those fantasy books I would avoid like the plague, and perhaps might put off some readers, but this isn't like that at all. As usual, the characters are fantastic, the plot keeps you hooked (I finished about 3am last night) and at the end, you put it down and pray that it's a trilogy....
