  •     My teen-aged son's favorite series. He read it in a day and a half!

  •     Garth Nix dazzles The Seventh Tower series yet again with the fourth heart stopping book in the series : Above The Veil. Tal and Milla's journey is harsh and dangerous. Darkness rages from Milla and hopelessness brews in Tal. As they desperately search for Ebbitt, Milla longs to return to the Ice, her original home. But their mission is now at a delay. Rebel Underfolk are beginning to appear in the Chosen's Castle, while a vast conspiracy lurks about in the Castle. Lead by Crow, Tal must seek his trust to reach above the Veil, while Milla's own fate is uncertain. Their adventure has turned from brutal to life threatening, and now they are in greater danger then ever before. And the battle has just grown fiercer. What began with the first intense adventure now continues with the epic fourth book in this wonderful, elaborately written series, with the most surprising and unexpected twists of all.

  •     Tal and Milla have found the Codex and have escaped from Aenir, but now Sushin's guards are looking for them. They escape and are taken to the Freefolk Fortress, the home of the Underfolk who don't like being slaves, and meet an untrustworthy ally, Crow. Crow and Tal are going to climb through the veil in order to find a keystone, there are seven and they are the only things that keep the creatures of Aenir from taking over, which will help him free his father. Milla is determined to leave and tell all that she has learned to the Crones. But if she does, the Crones will most likely wage war on the Chosen and try to take over the castle, and that would mean that Tal would once again become her enemy. And in the Icecarl world the only way to deal with enemies is to kill them before they kill you. This book, like the others, answered just enough questions to get you hooked and left enough unanswered to make you want more. It was really entertaining and I can't wait for the next one.

  •     In the fourth part of The Seventh Tower Series, the story finds Tal and Milla separated once again. Milla is desperate to tell the Ice Carls of the dangers she has seen (and also to repent for her "sins" by leaving herself on the ice). Meanwhile Tal teams up with the Freefolk boy Crow to find and secure the Red Keystone. The story is somewhat slow, but takes twists and turns and ends on a very suspenseful note. A good read in the latter end of the series.

  •     The fourth installment of the Seventh Tower series accelerates the reader to new levels of excitment as Tal and Milla go their own ways. Tal is forced to work with the rebel underfolk called Crow to try to find his lost father and save both the Castle and the Dark World from Susin and the evil plot he's hatching. Milla returns to the ice and must then lead an assualt on the Castle. Both Tal and Milla grow inside, but their worlds are coming down around them. As the plot thickens, Tal and Milla's situations become more desperate. The end of this book, like the last three, leaves the reader on the edge. But, this time the reader is even farther out that before. The fifth book isn't due out until August. I don't think I can wait.

  •     WOW! This is an amazing book. I've read all of the books in the series (actually, I've read them twice) and I really like the way the story stretched farther and farther, the characters changing drastically. I also found slight careless mistakes in this book-- Nix claimed that Milla's eyes were grey, while in the first book, they were green. Also, I felt this book was a change. For some readers, they might box their expectations by judging the characters, but Nix's other pieces show that he is capable of the amazing, so don't be surprised if the plot or characters swerve around drastically. In this book, Tal and Milla are still on the run from the maniacal Sushin, and encounter a rebel gang of underfolk. Milla feels the compelling urge to return to the ice--her characteristic flame slightly dimmed. But everything starts to fall into place in this book, paving the way for a possible ending that I believe will leave each reader breathless.

  •     Thank-you! The Seventh Tower Series is older, but the kids love it. Garth Nix (the author) is unique in is book-writing abilities. The adventure is there, but it is not cookie-cutter style and pat. Interesting point of view. Great for younger readers because does involve the action without over-the-top violence.

  •     I am an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, romance and historical novels. I found this entire series to be exceptional. I am an adult and these seemed to be written for a younger generation but I could not put these books down!If you would like some light fantasy reading that is different from many of the books out there, then this is for you.

  •     Good condition!

  •     I really like this book. The series certainly doesn't get boring and this book continues the epic very well. Above the Veil doesn't start off as slow as the other 3. This one starts off with Tal and Milla in the underfolk levels and from there they meet a rebelious underfolk group with less than 10 people in the "society". Not much later Milla heads home and Tal along with one of the rebellious underfolk head up the red tower to find and free the keeper so that Tal can free his father from the orange tower. Milla heads to the ice and finds herself with a surprise beyond everything she ever hoped for. I think that this book has set the stage for a lot of action for the following books ahead. I can't wait for the next ones.

  •     Th entire series of The Seventh Tower books are very original and interesting. I highly recommend them for anyone that likes fantasy. Also, I highly recommend you read the books IN ORDER. They won't make sense if you read them out of order and you will spoil some surprises. However, this fourth book is the most intense and exciting, so far. I just hate having to wait until August for book 5! As for any parents that are wondering, I am a parent and these books are totally acceptable for upper elementary and older. No sex, no bloody violence, no cussing.
