Dreamhunter (The Dreamhunter Duet, #1) by Elizabeth Knox

It’s as though Knox ended this book in the middle of writing it. Yet strangely it works because of the convoluted and fascinating plot and because the ideas are so intriguing. Now it came like sun showers, the sun and the rain together.

There was a serious problem with under developed characters. I loved Sabriel drramhunter I love all of Garth Nix’s booksbut I might have loved Dreamhunter slightly more if for nothing save its ending–one of the best I have read of late.
