    I’ve been impatiently awaiting for this fourth book. If you haven’t read the series don’t let the age group stop you from jumping in. It’s good enough to be labeled a modern classic. Unfortunately I may have to reread the first three books first because my memory isn’t what it used to be. Of course I can think of worse things.

    I don’t know, the names are really making a bad first impression. Dang you, Fangs of Dang! Plus, the Redundancy Department of Redundancy strikes again. I mean honestly, isn’t “On the Edge of the Sea of Darkness” fine enough as it is? Maybe it’s a good book after all-the image of dragons rising silently from a dark sea is a good one. But man, those names.

    • I agree with Steve. There are lots of little quirky word uses for the sake of humor, and they are most evident in the first book, I think. I actually love them. Like Totatoes. OK . . .

      There’s also a bit of “little boy humor” that I think would have little guys laughing and laughing.  Well, it would, junior highers. 😉

    This is from the beginning of the book. It doesn’t do this all the way through. I think it’s a way of lightning a sort of dark series. When reading it you’ll quickly overlook the oddity.

What do you think?
