Recommends it for: Anybody looking for an all-round brilliant story
Upon reading the first book in this series, I promptly fell in love with everything it had to offer. Between its evocative, strong imagery, precise setting and gripping plot, I could not find one thing I disliked, but what made the book for me was the heroine.

This book was brilliant!
I was drawn in the whole time, and I was sad to see it end.
I was even sadder because it seemed the ending was clear, nothing more could be added. Until the last line.

Can't wait for book three.

Deborah Kalin was once addressed by a recruitment agency as “Cheng Soon” no matter how often she corrected them.

A resident of the east coast of Australia, she shares a birthday with Pablo Picasso, was born in the year of the Fire Dragon, collects books beyond her ability to read them all, and once worked at an aluminium smelter where a sparrowhawk routinely ripped pigeons to pieces on a lamp post...more
