Thank you for finally epublishing what was my first fantasy book as a teenager in the mid-eighty's!
The story is just as fresh as it was back then and can't wait for the rest of the books!
Where are the rest?
This is a great book! I read it years ago but I'm confused why the other books in the series are not available. Come on iBooks get your act together!
This needs to be made into a tv series.
