"Readers looking to get in on the
ground floor of the next great fantasy
series don't have to look any further
"I cannot shake the feeling that this
is somewhat of a guilty pleasure in
terms of reading, but it also does
the job of being a guilty pleasure
with such gusto and commitment that
it becomes all the more enjoyable."

"I enjoyed Bizenghast, far more
than I expected to and probably
a little more than I should have."
