Shadowdance captivated me from the first paragraph of the book. The writing in this novel is exceptionally fluid and sensual (which I found quite compelling) and the descriptions are rich and innovative. At the same time I liked the air of darkness and mystery surrounding the story.

The story itself is a unique perspective from a crippled boy, Innowen, whom acquires the ability to walk and dance at night through the strange and malevolent workings of a woman known as a fearful witch. No gift as generous as this one comes without a price.

I enjoyed all of the meanings the author allows you to interpret from the story almost as much as what is actually said. The subtext is enticing and sinuous. The main characters are interesting and complex. I loved this book, it was definitely worthwhile read.
