Diana Wynne Jones was born in London on August 16, 1934. In 1953, she began school at St. Anne's College Oxford and attended lectures by J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis.

She wrote over 40 books during her lifetime including Dark Lord of Derkholm, Earwig and the Witch, and the Chrestomanci series.

Rezensionen

Almost better than the first one, as it has less of a rigid story structure to cling to. The magic is way more fun - and powerful. It is full of humor and a great read.

When a fantasy world is being held as a tourist attraction for a world like ours, not everybody is going to be happy. One of those unhappy ones is Derk, who is chosen to be the Dark Lord this season. It's not even all his fault, but then everything goes wrong... in hilarious fashion. This book is great fun.

„Ayna could predict the future. Ceri could find what was lost. Gair thougt he was ordinary.“

Und natürlich ist am Ende Gair derjenige, der wesentlich für die Rettung des Volkes ist. ;-)

Es handelt sich hier um eine klassische Abenteuergeschichte - fremde Gebiete werden erkundet, Vorurteile überwunden, neue Freundschaften geschlossen und die Helden wachsen an ihren Aufgaben. Das ganze spielt in einer ländlichen Umgebung, aber man merkt sehr schnell, dass manches eher ungewöhnlich ist, und das ist nicht nur die vorhandene Magie.

Eine gut zu lesende Geschichte mit vielen guten Szenen und reichlich überraschenen Wendungen.
