I've only read Forgotten Beasts of Eld. I enjoyed it a lot, I also thought
it was very good (Shades of the lit-crit thread! I'm sure various people
said they could see a book was good but not enjoy it and all the other
combinations of that), but it didn't somehow give me the same "feel" that
enthralls me in the manner of a DWJ. My SO is reading one of hers (can't
remember which) at the moment and I'll read it after he does, so I'll soon
have another chance to tell.
