While the prose in this book was undeniably beautiful, at times I found myself overwhelmed with descriptions of magic that made no sense. I couldn’t even understand what this magic was meant to do. There are too many descriptions of smells of various plants, herbs and spices. I read repeatedly about runes of dead leaves and soot and the melting of precious metals.

It was all very prettily written, but I couldn’t grasp the end purpose of it all. There was evil but its purpose was too nebulous for

I read this when I was in high school, and was immediately drawn in. The story is about Fiona, and orphaned teenage girl- full of angst and a fiery spirit. One day she sees a star fall down into the forest, and she chases it, and her world soon changes.

I don't know if Tim (whom I had the very good fortune of meeting in NYC many years ago) ever managed to follow up on this book, but if he ever does, I'll be the first in line to buy it!
