First book in a new series by Anne Bishop. Not as dark as the Black Jewels trilogy, but still good. New world, villians not quiet as twisted as in her other books, sort of an Spanish Inquisition type of situation.

An intriguing tale of the interaction between faerie and the human world. Worth a read if you're interested in fantasy.

I like and enjoy anything Anne Bishop writes. She weaves a nice story of witches, the Fae and mortals in this book. Great!

Hard to get started on this but it really picks up after about the first 60 pages. Glad I kept reading.

This book, with its mix of Hitler-like villain & Greek mythology (well, actually technically Roman because of the names...) is still an entertaining re-read - especially since I remember so little of this trilogy. This first tale does have a satisfying conclusion unlike many first parts of trilogies.

Now, she finds herself torn between the world of mortals and the world of Fae, who ignore what occurs in the mortal world, for the roads between the two lands are vanishing into thin air.
