loved this book. i would read it out loud to b when we were in bed and should have been sleeping, but instead we were laughing.
This reminded me somewhat of the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, but not quite as good. Where His Dark Materials is about Science and Religion instead of Swords and Sorcery, the substitute here is Necromancy. My issue with this trilogy (and to a lesser extent with His Dark Materials), was how the second book started out with a new unfamiliar character. In the case of Lirael, her story was not compelling enough for me to want to read it. I wound up putting the book down for a while, and didn't pick it up for a while, finally forcing myself to trudge past the lull of Lirael's back story. Besides that one complaint about the middle of the three books, the series is good, and worth a read by any fantasy fan looking for something a little different.
