J.M. Ney-Grimm has woven a beautiful, multi-layered tapestry... All the characters, human and otherwise, in her world are well-rounded and believable.
...an entrancing story with a character you care about, and desperately want to succeed...
One of my favourite things about Ney-Grimm’s work is her treatment of fantastical creatures...the pegasi seem ethereal...creatures of light and gauze that are somehow the most real things in the world.
