Sounds fantabulous -- I will keep an eye out for it!


I think this one is going to be a hit for all of the reasons you mentioned, but mostly Flora and the house. I wandered away from it a few times though - I think it might be too much for one book, if that makes any sense. That's not a strong criticism, just one that nagged at me a bit as I was reading. I was also a bit frustrated about the other Flora and I hope that loose end is tied up in the sequel. (I mean really - are they looking for her or what?)

I have this in a piece for Eclectica this summer on - get this - "Books Focused on Big Old Mysterious Houses". I've got four new books in the piece, (and one more on the way) can you believe it?


It does make sense -- it sounds like an oxymoron, but it was a meandering page-turner.


Just from your snippets, it looks like the names could be a bit much - my private rule is that if I have to stop and work out the pronunciation through the entire first chapter, the book isn't worth it. Do they get less distracting?

I absolutely loved this book. Couldn't put it down, and am eagerly awaiting the next installment. I meet Ysabeau Wilce soon after the book came out and was intrigued to learn that herbased the world of Califa on a real city in which she used to live and that she drew maps for every part of this world she created.

In response to the question about the names being a bit too much .... they definitely did not get in the way of my reading - I've had more trouble with other fantasy titles, most certainly. There aren't that many characters to keep track of.
