The Quilty Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

The Battle for Skandia - John Flanagan Installment 4 was an improvement over Book 3, which was disappointing. The gang reassembles in Skandia, and then - ultimately - returns to Araluen having forged a tentative alliance with the raiders from the north.

Both Nick and I are very much enjoying this series. I really like Flanagan's treatment of Evanlyn/Princess Cassandra. I'm sure we will see more of her, but he created a brave, resourceful and independent female character who is a nice counterbalance to Will and Horace. They are quite a trio and I am sorry to see them breaking up at the end of book 4.
