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.

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

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

This novella had a bit of everything I love supernatural mystery, romance, and an historical setting. A quick, fun read.
