I read it ages ago but didn't stick with me for some reason. I did appreciate it was a good storyline with decent characters but I wouldn't call it one of my top ten favourites or anything. Maybe I'm due for a re-read.
The Abhorsen trilogy are some of my favorite books. I've read Lirael and the third one (I can't remember what it's called at the moment) only once, but I have the first book and have read it quite a few times. It's been a long time, though... I don't remember it well, so I need to read it again. xD
