I was so excited when this book came out because I have loved this series for a long time. I would personally put this series on the same level as some of my other favorites such as Harry Potter. I was so happy when I found out that there would be a fourth book rather than ending here as originally planned. It is really a wonderful series with such a vivid world. I enjoy the background, history, and extra tidbits that make it feel like a fully functional world rather than a fictional story.
