I wasn't that keen on Sudden Wild Magic the first couple of times I read it,
but I took it away with me this weekend and really enjoyed it. I still think
Deep Secret is better, but I like a lot of the characters in SWM,
(especially Gladys) and I like the magic. (I think Crown of Dalemark is all
right- the modern bits make it seem a bit too detached from the "old"
Dalemark for it to work really well for me, but it's still a good book.)
My confession is that Charmed Life is my least favourite Chrestomanci book.
I don't know why, it just doesn't make me want to read it nearly as often as
the others. Fire And Hemlock is much the same- I enjoyed it, but I'm not
particularly bothered that I haven't read it for a couple of years ( I got a
copy when the new editions came out, and haven't opened it!)
