I enjoyed this book. It is, as usual, well written with interesting characters. I recommend it to any fantasy fan.

The delightful first of a series but can be read as a stand-alone; I'm not the biggest fan of fantasy or urban fantasy but this was engrossing right from the beginning and I went on to read all three of Edghill's The Twelve Treasure trilogy. I'm only posting this paperback because a friend gave me the omnibus of all three novels!

One of my favorite books of all time.

Really fun book. Good considering it isn't high fantasy or an epic. My one complaint is the editing is somewhat shabby. Not so bad that it ruined the book. Fun story line. I thought in engrossing enough to make me read it, and I am interested in possibly finding the next one and reading that one as well.

From the back cover " It was Beltane Eve and student librarian Ruth Marlowe's thirtieth birthday when she stumbled over New York City's latest mugging victim. He was tall, with long silvery hair, catlike eyes, pointed ears and he was garbed in the finest of hand-sewn medieval wear......muggers had stolen from him -the Sword of Maiden's Tears......the curse on this magic blade was that any mortal who wielded it would be transformed into a grendel, an almost indestructible monster which preyed only upon humans.....
