    When Daine comes down from the mountains, she carries with her two things: a dark secret about her own past, and a strangely powerful magic that even she doesn't understand.

    S. L. Garner says: "Doesn't do the book justice."
    "Great book, but..."
    Overall

    I loved the book, and unlike the other reviewers, had no problem with the full-cast production (although I did love the job Trini Alvorado did on the previous series).

    I just wanted to warn the users of the Creative Labs Nomad Zen Extra that this is one of the books that causes the "playback error" bug referenced in the FAQ. I got very frustrated a couple of times due to the tech issues.

    Story

    The huge Manhattan Dome hovers high in the smog. Beneath it, the city lies deserted, its buildings haunted, hollow shells. Years ago it was closed by the government in response to insidious crime and pollution. Now it is open only 2 months out of the year as a sort of morbid recreational park, and its only residents are the poor and downtrodden...

    Lisa says: "Dated, predictable"
    "A dissenting review"
    Overall

    The previous reviewer thought that Harlan Ellison's narration detracted from the book, but I thought it was a fine performance, and is one of the few cases where I remember the narrator (in a positive sense) as much as the author him/herself. Harlan really brings this tale to life, and we have a very entrancing story.
