The boundaries between the worlds have fallen. Forced to integrate the creatures of fantasy into real life, humanity struggles against its disillusionment, prejudice and an inevitable feeling of inadequacy.

This was interesting, although it started out slow. A different look at fairies and elves, and I liked the author's exploration of one of my favorite themes in fantasy.

Liz is one of three women to create the first doorway for the fey to cross into our world. For a while she worked at the Embassy tending to fey/human relations. But she left the job after something happened with her partner, and now she ushers fey into the world at a place not so different of feel than a tram station. Liz seems to be trying to escape, or maybe remember, something inside herself as she goes with the fairies who call to her every night into the Middle World. Here is where she eats ...more

This was my first book by Frances Pauli and I'm so glad I found her. I was impressed with how well she developed the characters and the worlds they inhabit in such a short time. I was expecting a flat experience with a book this size but that is NOT what I found between the covers. A Moth in Darkness is 207 pages packed! I could easily see the world of the fey, with it's pink sun and obsidian castle rising into the clouds. I felt attached to Liz and worried about her dancing with the fairies. I ...more

Frances Pauli does something in 207 pages that some fantasy authors can't do in 500 and that is layout not one, but two complex worlds, with all the trimmings. Also she lays out multiple characters that truly you feel attached to midway through the book. I really enjoyed this book a lot as it shows just how awesome of a storyteller Frances Pauli is. There is so much going on in two vastly different worlds, with several very different characters but there is never once that I felt confused, left ...more

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,

Frances Pauli writes across multiple genres. Her work is speculative, full of the fantastic, and quite often romantic at its core. Whenever possible, she enjoys weaving in a little humor. Once upon a time she was a visual artist, but she's since come to her senses. Now she fills her miniscule amount of free time with things like crochet, belly dance and abysmal ukulele playing. She lives in Centra ...more
