I'm in awe of L.D.'s dream-like writing, every page crackles with magic and they have created a world I'm already desperate to return to. Artezans is nothing short of phenomenal.
I devoured it over the course of two nights - stayed up until about 2am reading which I can't remember having done for a long time. It's excellent: inventive, emotionally charged, equal parts funny and frightening, and utterly enthralling in the way all LD's books are. I really think they're one of the most exciting middle grade writers working today.
