Ditto!  (That's one with Prince Jasleth in it, isn't it?)

My brother borrowed it (or something like it) from the library, years ago when
we were 13 and 10 or thereabouts.  I loved it, so I looked for TL next time I
was in the library, borrowed "The Winter Players", and was hooked for life.  But
never remembered the title of the original book...

Purely a matter of taste.  There are several series, none of which (iirc) needs
to be read in order.

I don't dislike any of them enough to post a negative recommendation to the
list.  I would say, if you don't like one, try a different one, because many,
nay, most of them are not for all tastes.


PS Textbook prices.  Ouch!  I never paid anything like that for my textbooks (I
dropped chemistry after my first year, 1986-87).  I also hardly looked at them
during my years of study...
