Castle by Garth Nix

Castle (The Seventh Tower, #2)Castle by Garth Nix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So this series (Seventh Tower) remains simplistic, so simplistic that I almost feel guilty for counting this as a separate book. And then I remember all of the Robert Jordan monsters I read this year, and I don't feel bad any more. It all averages out.

I think of Castle as the next chapter to the story more than the next book, but even when targeting a different audience Nix continues to deliver enthralling worlds, realistic characters, and fantastic plots. He keeps things moving along at a good pace, yet doesn't miss the key details that he needs to build on later. Four stars for consistent awesomeness.
