I really enjoyed this series. It was refreshing and smart. I got quite a few chuckles, and parts felt all too human. Although this series is essent..Show More »ially about a witch, I loved the southern charm of the characters. There is a lot of atmosphere and detail in these books which gives you a picture in your mind of the story setting. I thought the family dynamics were very well written and thought out. My favorite character was Geelo, but I do have hopes for the Gollum too.
