This was an unexpectedly wonderful book. I had never heard of the author, and just chose the book randomly from another member. Am I glad I did! I was anxious to finish it because it make me wonder what was going to happen next. This is actually 2 books in one, it is a reprint and republishing of two books, combined as the author originally intended. A riveting read, if you are into Sidhe, magic, etc.

This book represents the most rare of creatures in early 21st century America, an ORIGINAL fantasy novel! Not warmed over Tolkien, Cabell or Thorne Smith, Bear sets out to invent a new take on some very old ideas, and he does so admirably. If you want something besides the usual and are a bit too literate for the whole paranormal romance thing, check out how a master can breathe new life into themes that were old when they appeared in Weird Tales.

Interesting concept and execution. Mr. Bear really brings to life the difference in the faery folk from humans which agrees with the Western Esoteric Tradition of magic. In places, I found it down right chilling.
