I read this when it was first published and still have my ragged paperback on the shelf with all Hambly’s other books. Her descriptions are layered and fascinating, her plots have more twists than a theme park ride and her characters are the people you would most like to meet in person.
Please be advised, these are not books to skim if you want to really get into them. Sun Wolf is a complex character as is Starhawk. There are two more books with these characters, and they are even more enjoyable. I have read and reread these books and they never get old, although I have to say that they get even better than Ladies of Mandrigan.
