Mesmerized by the deep, unfolding characters. It's not a big book, yet it has big magic packed inside it. The author must be a faery's child - hair long, foot light, eyes wild, brain quick, heart open - bleeding love.

Read it.

This was so so good but TOO SHORT! I mean I know it's a novella but still :p Complex, engaging, funny characters, and an exciting story that was over much too soon. Looking forward to the next installment!

Like Little, Big, Strange & Norell, crossed with Supernatural. A very good, immersing read that will keep you entertained, no doubt. But it also has amazing prose, very reminiscent of great Victorian classics, but with it's own spin on things. Must read. ...more

Much more complicated set of characters than I normal find in the Shadow Council shared world - almost doesn't fit in the novella (which is a complete story). A couple of the transitions between chapter/scenes have abrupt jumps; a problem with the extremely short format of novellas.

The language is beautiful. I bet this will be an amazing audiobook.

What makes a monster? When does one become a monster, and when does one stop being a monster? The monsters in this book are not that introspective, an

I've never had so much fun writing a book. Vivienne, Nerissa, Worth, and Christabel have become some of my favorite characters I've ever written. When I sat down to write this, I had the voice of the Dowager Countess from Downton Abbey in mind; I wanted a serious tale that was punctuated with absurdity but embraced my love of the Edwardian period, as well as myth. I have a MA in English, and my primary study was Arthuriana and the Romantic poets, so this was one of the first opportunities I had ...more

What a wonderous romp! I can't wait to read what happens in Cairo in the upcoming Masks & Malevolence. Nerissa is my power creature, but all the Beasts of Tarrytown are multi-faceded gems in an opulent setting. ...more
