Very very near the top. Really excellent performances added to the greatness of the book.
The ratio of romance to political intrigue was just perfect for me. I wish I could have read this book when I was fourteen, even though great gusts of it would have blown right over my head.
I don't think I have a favourite - I liked them all. Though I really like the way Ellen Kushner does Alec's voice. Loved the actress who played Artemisia too! She had just the right balance of girlish melodrama and sincerity.
When Alec goes to Haikum (spelling?). The buildup to it was so great and it really helped cement Tremontaine's motivations throughout the book.
Third book please?? Fourth? Fifth?
