Yes, the Mavin series. I've never read them, which is why I didn't recommend
them! They seem to be even more determinedly out of print than the Jinian
ones and I have never seen them anywhere. I've finally given in and ordered
them on the net, at more than I've ever paid for secondhand books before,
(my poor aching credit card!) but they haven't come yet. I'm glad to know
you like them, I'd hate to have gone to all the trouble and then find they
weren't as good as the other trilogies.
