I really miss Nigel Planer. It takes a good hour to 'get into' Mr Briggs. But once I adjusted to the characters new voices, I was engrossed in this wonderful fantasy. The story examines new characters and gives some interesting personal developments. Plots within plots and fanciful fun really make this another entertaining book in the series.
