Yes, I did like this book. Go and look under "Pendragon - The lost city of Faar" and see what I wrote about his writing skills. What I liked about this was the complex story. I don't think that I, as a writer, would ever have come up with this idea. It's in the thirties and has got to do with the second world war and the story D. J. MacHale (and probably some other people) thought up was really nice.
