Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic New World originally got my copy from a friend, not a book I'd have bought - what a shock once I began reading it because it really is a fantastic new world to which the reader is introduced between the covers. I wanted more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Fantasy I've been reading Fantasy for over 20 years now, and this book is truly exciting! As a huge Anne McCaffery and Marian Zimmer Bradley fan myself, I just have to tell everyone that Janice Cullum has created a whole new world for us to explore. I, for one, can hardly wait for the next book!!
