A Gleeful Return to the Old Kingdom
I loved getting back into the lore and magic system of the Charter. It is a good standalone novel as it has left me wanting more and I am now listening to the previous trilogy.
Exploring the Old Kingdom's history and Moggett!
He's not Tim Curry, but a very good narrator; he kept me interested.
I did, pretty much. Only took me two days.
There wasn't enough Moggett in it, like many people he is my favourite charecter. It was nice however to see the slightly more evil side of him. The book is great, don't get me wrong.. but there was something lacking.. Even after I finished the book I was unsure of why Clariel becomes and I hope there is possibly more books to fill in more adventuires of Clariel.
