- A series where the good guy wins and the bad guys loses.
- Books that I can read with my kids and still enjoy.
- A girl character that's smart and nice to be around.
- The friendship between characters that isn't always perfect. And then there's forgiveness. Just like real life.
- A boy/man that we can all look up to (even if he's a wizard.)
- The epilogue. I needed that epilogue - badly.
