About the Author:

Garth Nix was born in 1963 in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band outside playing'Hail the Conquering Hero Comes' or possibly'Roll Out the Barrel'. Garth left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra (the federal capital) and stayed there till he was nineteen, when he left to drive around the UK in a beat-up Austin with a boot full of books and a Silver-Reed typewriter. He is now an award-winning author and one of the most influential names in contemporary fantasy.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-7-Nix picks his adventure up in midstride, sending renegade aristocrat Tal from the lowest depths of the immense, sunless Castle in which he has spent most of his young life to one of its highest peaks, and dispatching Tal's warrior companion, Milla, back to her ice-dwelling people with a warning that the Veil protecting the world from the deadly shadowrealm Aenir is weakening. As the author has created a very complex world in previous volumes, and the plot has gone too far to recapitulate easily, readers new to the series will flounder; still, the pace seldom lets up. Tal's affable but dim-witted "Spiritshadow" Adras makes a comic foil worthy of a Disney movie, and-sure sign of a Nix tale-the various uglies, from Waspwyrms and Dretch to archfiend Shadowmaster Sushin, are thoroughly bone-chilling. After plenty of narrow squeaks, exciting chase scenes, and stunning revelations (but no resolutions), fans will be eager for episode five: and voil...! It's already out.
