    " I love Peake's writing style, although I like listening to it even better. Just watched the BBC production of this trilogy and it was very good as well. "

    " This book is quirky, labyrinthian, humorous, and dark. It's a great followup to the first book that makes you want to read the third. "

    " I liked this one much better than Titus Groan (the first book in the trilogy). It was still longer than it had any need to be, but at least this time I felt like there was a story. "
