I finally got some of the Chrestomanci novels and had a chance to read them. They are published towards young adults and are some very good fantasy books. I think a lot of adults miss out by avoiding the younger readers section because they think people might think them odd if they read them.

These books are fun and in a really interesting world. I’ve noticed in a lot of Jones’ books that she keeps parallel worlds as a constant. This one too has parallel worlds in which some are linked. The Chrestomanci is a position held by a very powerful enchanter whose job is to keep fellow magic users from abusing their power and trying to rule over those who don’t have magic ability.

The both books below are actually two books in one, with volume 1 containing Charmed Life and The Lives of Christopher Chant. Volume 2 contains The Magicians of Caprona and Witch Week. All four are very good, with the last two switching up the type of heroes and plot, which in my opinion is a very good thing. A series stagnates if it just reuses the same old plot over and over. There is a third volume in the Chrestomanci series but I don’t have it yet. I’m planning on getting it as well as a few other books of hers.

Pictures found here and here.
