I like Cart and Cwidder first and foremost, then Spellcoats, then Crown, and
Drowned Ammet doesn't do anything for me except for a very few passages
(like using the names of the gods). They're due for rereading, but I got
NINE! books for my birthday and I'm only on the fourth :-)

(And I'm writing one, which also takes surprising amounts of time; two to
three hours each day)
