The final book of “The Goldstone Wood” series, if you don’t count the two novella’s. I loved this one too. What can I say. My kind of fantasy, allegory. I am going to be sad to see it end. There is a lot more of one of my favorite characters in this one, “Monster” the man who is a cat. I loved these as much as Narnia and almost as much as Lord of the Rings! Five plus stars and a new favorite fantasy author.
