What the Critics Say

"Bishop’s talents lie both in her ability to craft a story filled with intriguing characters and in her flair for smoldering sensuality.” (Library Journal)
"[Bishop’s] worlds are so fully realized and three-dimensional, they jump right off the pages." (Fresh Fiction)

    Story
    "Doesn't hold up"

    I thoroughly enjoyed Anne Bishop's Black Jewel series and her Ephemera series. This Novella just doesn't hold up to the level of the other stories in the rest of the series. It was not horrible by any means, but the others drew me in and allowed me to get lost in the world. This story just left me wanting.
