I have the Crystal Cave on my TBR list. We'll have to compare notes.ReplyDelete
I've read the Stewart trilogy twice now, once as a young girl and a few years ago in my *elderly* years. I really like them and the POV of Merlin.ReplyDelete
Dark Wood has been on my Amazon lish longer than I care to admit. Must rectify that.
Planning on reading it soon?
Glad to know you liked the Stewart. Dark Wood is one big book, I hope it will be a good read too.
Some time in the next 8 or so weeks all things going well.ReplyDelete
