Filled with stunning, evocative images (both the drawing and colouring are superb) that create a fully developed world and atmosphere for the very well written characters to `live' within. Comparisons with Lord of the Rings are easy to slip into, but there is as much of a flavour of The Three Musketeers in here.
The hardback, slightly square format gives a -literally - different feel that all helps create the impression that this book is something special. The author has clearly poured a lot of love and life into creating this and the publisher seems to have recognised this will be something to cherish and have given it the right level of production.
If I have one complaint it would be that it is too long to wait for the next edition
