I am an author who also runs a small publishing press called Wittegen Press.
on Oct. 10, 2013 :
Third book out in the series and I enjoyed it just as much as the first two. I love how the different planets/dimensions each story is set on allow the series to explore various genres. This one harkens heavily toward the high fantasy, which was always one of my favs growing up, and it did the genre plenty of justice.
I also quite like the way Natasha handles the Questers, not tying herself into having to use every Quester in every task, or have them all front and centre all the time. With a large ensemble, it's easy to get lost, but by keeping the focus on Charlie and then having each book explore his developing relationships with one or two of his other Questers, you gradually get to know them all, without feeling like the knowledge is superficial at best (a common pitfall of large ensemble casts).
All in all an easy and highly enjoyable read, I'll definitely be buying the next one when it's released.
