Rating: 4 stars
Summary: Not my favourite in the series...but still good
Review: As the title says...but still an excellent book. The entire series and especially the best books in it really immerse you in the story lines and this does it exceptionally well. I really liked the development of the relationship with Molly and the fairie queen character was a classic. My advice: read it; if you haven't read any of the Books of Magic before its a great introduction, and if you have read some of the other books...its a great addition.

Rating: 3 stars
Summary: The first half is good, the second half, not so good.
Review: Here is the second collection of "The Books of Magic" regular series, containing issues 5-13. Although BOM was created by Neil Gaiman, you will quickly figure out that he did not write this little ditty.
The first story arc, "Sacrifices" is pretty good stuff. In it we see a possible future evil version of Tim Hunter who wants to make sure that Tim follows the wrong path so that his version will actually exist in the future. Sounds like writer John Ney Rieber may have made contributions to The Terminator's movie continuity.
The other stories in this edition range from good to fair. Do not have huge expectations and you won't be dissapointed. This is simply a decent read, nothing more, nothing less.

Rating: 5 stars
Summary: Not the best, but thats not saying much
Review: I am an avid reader of almost anything and everything by Gaiman. I am also a reader of the Books of Magic (both the miniseries by Gaiman and the follow up series). This book is not Gaiman's greatest (That would be Fables and Reflections, or perhaps Season of Mists) nor the best of the Books of Magic (although perhaps it is the best of the miniseries), but given the length and Quality of the Books of Magic and Gaiman's skill in Sandman and Neverwhere thats not saying much. It is a great story with few flaws (some of the art is wonky and there are a few too many cliches) and recommended to fans of the BoM or Gaiman.
