    Definitely one for the urban fantasy fans Co written by Megan Lindholm Robin Hobb and Steven Brust the book mixes Hungarian folkloric archetypes with a story of modern police and teens I suspect that Lindholm wrote the folklore inspired characters because some of them especially the title character reminded me of her early book Wizard of the

    I wavered between really liking this one and really just hoping it'd end On the whole I liked the parts I liked way than I disliked the parts that I disliked so I'd still count this as a worthwhile readThis is an urban fantasy tale of Good versus Evil set againstabovewithin the backdrop of Hungarian folklore The characters are compelling and

    It's a pretty good fantasy mystery with a bit of horror It didn't grab me on one read the way some of his others have although I'm not sure why I should re read it see if I change my mind but as I recall I just didn't identify much with the hero

    This was a great read I'm really surprised it doesn't have a much better rating from readers Perhaps the masses don't like to be challenged in their reading choices This book was a bit confusing for a while with a lot of different characters many having multiple names and a bunch of different story lines going on but that's what i loved about it

    Normally I devour books and Steven Brust is one of my favorite authors Butthis one was a slog It is a semi captivating story involving gypsies in and out of the real timeline but it jumps back and forth than a uentin Tarantino film The resolution was mostly satisfying but the journey through the book was confusing and tough

    Was a slow read Hard to identify positively with the characters as they were made real and unreal at the turning of a page Time place and story were mutating as you progressed through the book Each character had several identities that were not clear as to which were which And powersabilities were not set for any except the villain

    Gave up on this one Love Robin Hobb and love Inheritance short stories by Megan Lindholm and the not so short ones in that collection by Robin Hobb Really I just badly need Robin Hobb and I've run out Wah I'm thinking by the way that this author needs a third pen name to explain her self that created Soldier Son trilogy Am I right?

    I love the way Steven and Megan tell a our tale over a modern fairy tale on top of retelling a fairy taleand make it work Some pacing issues and I’m a bit iffy on Daniels choice but overall a solid enjoyable read

    Tough to start but well worth pushing through the first 80 pages to get into the flow of it Well written and atmospheric Not character driven but rather an examination of the ongoing clash between our 'real' world and the lands of fantasy As such it conveys its reality very well
