Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

Changing shape in an undersea world is intriguing, drawing in fans of fantasy and mythology who may not be as keen on the science fiction aspects of the previous book in the Wizardry series. Diane Duane knows how to spin a good yarn, and this multi-layered tale leaves readers with plenty to ponder about the nature of good and evil, and the role of sacrifice in light of a greater good. The novel raises ethical concepts such as truth, steadfastness, and temptation. Even an environmental angle, the pollution of water and slaughter of whales, is woven into the unusual undersea topography of this complex tale.
