The Return of Magic

AdvantagesWell-crafted story in the traditional vein

DisadvantagesUnsubtle transfer into volume 2 (maybe)

similar by Price (less than 5 GBP)
JK Rowling's stories are getting more adult, a thrilling read
Things must get worse before they get better, I cried lots!!! (*)
Excellent writing style, frenetic pace, superb characters, shorter than most fantasies
Perhaps not massively inventive, narrative can switch quickly among many characters (*)
More assured writing, Death, Cohen is a wonderful character
The Discworld is still not quite mature (*)
Easy to read, entertaining, imaginative, and a real page turner
The plot can get a little complex at times. (*)
The epic saga continues in Western setting and we meet Susan Delgado...Roland's love.
None (*)
similar by Title (First Letter) (A)
decent read
not the best (*)
Tyrion Lannister wit, John Snow courage, dragons, the journey continues
The long wait till the next book (*)
A believable world...
Too much to take in and no resolution in sight. (*)
Vivid style of writing, Tyrion Lannister wit and back to the game
None (*)
Great progression of the story
You have to read the previous not so great books first (*)
similar by Author Surname (First Letter) (T)
great storyline-it has everything!!
hard to get? (*)
The Best book of all Time.
none for me. (*)
Great in its own right and sets you up well for the follow up
the fact that you can't actually live in Middle Earth (*)
A superb literary achievement
Can be a little boring at times (*)
