I was just perusing the newly listed stuff and came across the name Neil Hancock on another series and immediately thought... Ah! Circle of Light author. What a wonderful series that was. Such bright memories. Funny thing is that I read the series as a young teen maybe 14 or so years old and am now almost 50. That alone tells me something. After all these years the characters of Bear, Otter, and Dwarf still bring a smile of fond remembrance. How much more praise can one give a book? This one stuck with me as far and as long as LOR and old JRR Tolkein ever has. Get it for your adolescent.
