This review is from: The Chronicles of Chrestomanci, Volume 1: Charmed Life / The Lives of Christopher Chant (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is actually two books in one, there's also a second 'volume' with two more books, and several other storys which can be bought individually. This volume has the first two stories, but i think you could get away with reading the second volume first because they're not really sequels as such, just storys set in the same world.
when i bought this book i didn't know these things, and after i read the first story, i wanted to read about those same characters again, but the next story was about almost entirely different characters. apart from that small dissapointment, this book, and the whole series really, is really really good. every time i start a new story, its like 'oh no these new characters are going to be really boring compared to the last ones' but they never are, each story is just as good as the last.
