    "Meh"

    I just didn't really care for this book. I gave it 4 stars because of the great narrators. I just chugged through all of the different stories because I thought I'd find a couple of really enjoyable ones. The first one was great. I guess I may just be spoiled by the Abhorsen trilogy seeing as how those are my all-time favorite audible books/narrations.

    "Great Anthology"

    Hard to tell sometimes when one story ended and the other began, from a performance perspective. Garth Nix shows his versatility here beyond the typical coming -of-age fantasy fare. The crossover stuff was cool too, with Hellboy and Shade and Abhorsen.
