Wonderful Series, January 29, 2003
Reviewer: Darcy Degone (Livermore Falls, Maine United States)

I highly recommend this series to any fantasy lover. These books rate a spot on my bookshelf right next to my Narnia series and the Lord of the Rings. The wondrous relationship between Ricardo (or should I say Rikardon) and Keeshah, the large desert cat, made me long for a Shaum friend of my own! Oh, to feel the wind in my hair, riding across the hot shining desert on the back of a huge, telepathic cat! Anyone who is hooked on the Ann McCaffrey dragonrider series, or even the new Phillip Pullman series (The Golden Compass) will love these books. I have reread them numerous times and never tire of them. They will keep you hooked right up until the last book, The River Wall, where the mystery of Gandalara is revealed, as well as Rikardon's true purpose for being transported there from his own world. Believe me, at 30+ years old I have read everything from C.S Lewis, Greg Bear, Frank Herbert, you name it. I still love these books better than any of them. Its a real shame they are out of print. If you can find a used copy do so, and you won't want to part with them!
