As in a lot of Frances Pauli's fiction, the subplots are in control of this book. Betrayal, deception, fear, and the ominous, ever-lurking threat of something nasty on the horizon--it's all hear, mixed in with the central romance plot to beautiful effect. No loose-end left unconnected...unless it was on purpse.

The biggest surprise in this book to me, as a high-fantasy reader, is how much I care about the humans. The regular old humans. They get my iterest more than any elf or fairy in the book, hands down. I like it--it reminds us all that humans can still be moderately entertaining.

All ina ll, I recomend this book, especially if you like the old, Celtic fae legends.
