The story manages to have both the classical good vs evil plot (a father and daughter versus a villain) whilst retaining relatively grounded and realistic characters. It contains, in my opinion, a nice mix of the fantastical magic elements and the more true-to-life ones, allowing it to appeal to fans of both without you feeling like the story doesn't contain enough of what you prefer (magic/reality).
Any adult who enjoys fantasy would enjoy this series, but I do recommend this for the pre-teen/teen age group as its themes and plot would more likely appeal to them than to an adult one (depending of course on the genre of books you tend to read).

Warning: Book three is intense and likely to prompt sadness in the reader. The calm after the storm is well worth the journey though. You'll find yourself rooting for the characters as they travel through, even as you bite your nails in suspense. ;)
