I've heard so much about this author lately that I checked out a couple of her books from the library and really liked them. Now I'd like to own them! Does anyone have the following books in their inventory in nice condition? I was hoping to get these in hardcover.  Pretty please with sugar, chocolate and...well you know... ;D

  • A Charmed Life
  • Hexwood

Any other books you would recommend written by her? I've already read Magicians of Caprona.

I read Dark Lord of Derkholm which was good. I also like all the Chrestomanci books, Charmed Life, The Lives of Christopher Chant, Witch Week and The Magicians of Caprona.

That's just about all I've read by her, but I'm looking for more, too (see my sig. line).

I hope this helps.

I don't have any books to share - my copies are all keepers! 

But I loved the Dalemark Quartet.  It doesn't matter what order you read the first three books, but the fourth book must be The Crown of Dalemark.

The newer Chrestomanci books (The Pinhoe Egg is the most recent) are also very good.
