Fantasy merges with scholarship under the masterful guidance of real, original imagination. This book will be pigeonholed as fantasy, paranormal, science fiction, romance, crime, historical and erotic. It is all and none of these: it is something much bigger and better.
Playing with time, power, culture and wealth, this novel is at heart a love story. But those who enjoy the Gothic, lovers of music – both classical and rock, astronomy, and the idea of telepathy will all find connections here.
As with all good novels, this well-written story works through carefully crafted characters who carry their humanity with love and bare their flaws for all to see.
A fascinating, complex and enthralling tale that I found a thoroughly compelling read.
