    This comes out not long after I finish my final year at university, so I think I'll be treating myself to an all day book binge on release day!The Witchwood Crown can't come soon enough.

    Once again such an awesome story! The bad guys are never just bad, and really believe they are doing the right thing. The good guys are never just good, but can be a true pain in the ass.I love how this book tells both the story of Morgan, son of King Simon, and that of several of the Norns.I'm really sad the release date of this book has been postponed for a year.

    Does this mean a reread of the original trilogy well over 15 years since I read them.
