Castle in the Air
Diana Wynne Jones
And so I'm here, with the last book in the Howl series, except it's not the last (it's the first companion book), it's not really about Howl, and it's barely a series.
Those caveats aside, I suppose I should clarify. House of Many Ways is the second companion book, meaning I should have read this one first. Then again, as I've mentioned in the last review, it's really not a big deal, because apart from a few details in Howl and Sophie's family it doesn't really matter what order your read it in.
This time it's more of an Aladdin adventure, except the protagonist is Abdullah, and there's a rather clever explanation for the seeming employment of fairy tale tropes. It's a lot more fun than House of Many Ways and at no point did I want to smash Abdullah's face in.
