The Forests of Silence - Emily Rodda 2.5 stars

Good beginning to a cliched, but still enjoyable fantasy series for kids 7 and up. The biggest drawback, apart from the less than original plotlines, is the lack of emotions and connection to the characters. Where there should be clarity, things are left vague, where things should be subtle, they are thrown at you.

Still, they really are not bad and I can see myself recommending them to young readers.
