Reviewer: Daniel A. Krantz "dan_krantz" (New Jersey, USA)
Another excellent work by Mike Resnick. Told from the viewpoint of an alien (something most authors have trouble doing), this book spans the galaxy in the quest for the Dark Lady. Is she Death? Is she a Goddess? The Bjornn art dealer Leonardo is driven to learn all he can about her, and what she means for his future, the future of his race, and the future of Mankind.
