I have been listening to this series for… Oh, ever since the beginning of Shadowmagic back when I was in High School. I kept listening to this series in five different countries, anxiously trying to download it in internet cafe's and hotel lobbies. I am hopelessly addicted, but have never given it a review. I must say that through out the many many years I've been partaking in this amazing world I was constantly delighted and swept away to a place where magic is real and adventure exists around every corner. I am so enthralled with this series and am anxiously awaiting the third book in the series. These are books I've recommended to all my friends and family, that I have read, re-read, and re-re-re-re-read, because they are THAT good. Keep up the amazing work John, you're doing a good thing for the world and all the readers in it.
