VOYA

Appelbaum's third novel continues to captivate the imagination. As in Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass, the main character must save the world while confronting the threats posed by her father.... Caux is a well-designed fantasy world with enough appeal to satisfy younger readers, who will wish for a fourth book.

Chronogram
The closing volume of the trilogy is catnip for fantasy fans young and old. Intrepid Ivy Manx steps up to the destiny plate to trump villains animal (ink monkeys!), vegetable (scourge bracken!) and human (her father!) Appelbaum's fluent prose shimmers with magical threads, like the tapestry into which one of her characters disappears.

About the Author

SUSANNAH APPELBAUM comes from a family of doctors and philosophers, which instilled in her both an early fascination and a great deal of caution with bottles marked "poison." The idea for the Poisons of Caux trilogy was born when she lived in an old woodcutter's cottage in French apple country as a child: "Out of the door were ancient forests, wild boars, and new and inviting foods to taste."

Susannah worked in magazine publishing for many years and now lives with her family in the Hudson Valley, New York, and in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, where her garden prefers to grow weeds. To learn more about the author, please visit www.susannahappelbaum.com.

Format: Hardcover
A friend introduced me to this series a while ago as she knew I am a big fan of the Lord of The Rings books and I have been a big fan ever since on these Poisons of Caux books. Applebaum's writing keep you hooked from page to page, I love the illustrations and interesting artistic touches - Book Three has Oxblood (colored) Ink.

Format: Hardcover
Beautifully written, captures any child or adult's imagination and takes you on quite a ride of twists and turns. This book transports you into a completely different world (or two). The characters are rich and the *poisonous* atmosphere keeps you at the edge of your seat. A grand finale to a great series... (Although I would welcome more!)

I got the second book at a used book store, so went ahead and bought the 1st to read and the last too. I've yet to read them as I'm very busy right now. But I know it's going to be great!!
