I received this book as an ARC and was delighted. I read part of it as part of my book club assignment on a book social media site and was drawn in. The author graciously sent me a copy to read as a beta reader. It was even better and thoroughly drew me in. The fantasy world is lush, but not so detailed as to bore me. The action is brisk and the characters lively. It's one of those books you keep reading and don't want to stop and then are disappointed when you finish it. I hear a game is being ...more

It's a great paced story, and has wonderfully developed characters. It is not always easy to determine good versus evil, but it shows the unpredictability of the story. This is the first book of

I received this as an ARC, and will be purchasing a "real" copy when it's released.
It's a sweet book that combines hypocrisy and heroism in a well-realized pre-industrial fantasy world with the final semester travails of an art student in 21st century Louisville. The organization of both magic and religion around music, the introduction of a brilliant original species, and the whimsical treatment of gargoyles combine to add a great deal of freshness and interest to the world of Canard, while the
