"Karyn Henleys novel starts with a jolt, grabs the reader by the collar, and doesnt slow down one minute. This author infuses her text with imagery, suspense, and a cast that will appeal to all ages. In addition, it has a feeling that I can only describe as "folklorish," with all the best elements that come with thatmusic, magic, and mystery. I think its destined to become a classic."
