This is a brilliantly funny first novel by a very clever author. McArdle manages to incorporate the L.A. movie publicity scene, the breakup of an inter-faith engagement, sick pets, and the threat of eviction into a wickedly amusing tale. Well-written. Recommended!

Helpful Score: 1


Susan Cooper writes beautifully, although this book may not be suitable for every young reader. The war doesn't seem real to the schoolboys, but it gets closer -- and then tragedy strikes. From inside the front cover: "Dawn of Fear is a very good way of discovering what it was like to be young during the last World War."

First of a series about Tristen, "summoned" into being by the wizard Mauryl. Or is he another long-dead wizard, now returned to life? This book is well-written, up to the usual high Cherryh standard. I'm eager to read the next one in the series!

Though readers of Molly Hughes's delightful autobiographical trilogy A London Child of rhe 1870s, A London Girl of the 1880s, and A London Home in the 1890s will take up this sequel to her story with special interest, it can be equally enjoyed by the reader discovering Molly Hughes for the first time.
