(For the whole series): I blasted through all of these the first time I read them. Stewart and Riddell created an amazing world, where rocks float and there are a bunch of different humanoid beings running around, each with their own outlook on life and way of living. You can read them in published order or reorganize them into internal chronological order, as some of the characters turn out to be the grandparents of other characters. Either way, a good rollicking read with characters you might actually care about. The pen-and-ink illustrations top it off – interesting, complex, and perfect for the story.

Delightful, apocalyptic tale set shortly after vol 5. The story includes pride, courage, redemption, reconciliation, and just desserts - as well as excellent line illustrations, as with other volumes in the series. ( )

A genius who created several incredible inventions that helped everyone, hiding in the Palace of Statues, hiding from the very people he built for. Everything was taken from him, and he plots his revenge. But in the end, who really puts it in motion? And the giant battle in the end was awesome, shryke versus goblin versus librarian. A gory battle full of mysteries. Where are the librarians? Who is the third party that joins the fight? ( )

The librarian knights are heroes in this world of goblins, trolls, waifs and various demons and monsters. Intrigue and double-crossing are the order of the day. But the valiant librarians prevail. ( )
