Goldenhand; Garth Nix

Goldenhand (Abhorsen, #5)Goldenhand by Garth Nix
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This doesn't quite pass the stand-alone test, with ideas and people sprinkled in throughout that require prior knowledge to fully appreciate. But if you do have that knowledge, this is a great addition to the series. I did wonder on occasion why Nix has returned to the Old Kingdom (some authors return to old works - IMVHO - because it's easy, rather than because they have something truly new to add) but the ending clearly indicates that yet another entry will be on its way.
