“A masterpiece of fairy-tale worldbuilding, with a Faerie land that eerily mirrors the real world. The tone is often dark, but rich, building a wondrous set in a fascinating world, with a classic reluctant hero and a cause worth cheering for.”—“Locus.”
Theo Vilmos' life is about to take a real turn for the worse. He is drawn from his home in Northern California into the parallel world of Faerie, for, unknown to him, he is a pivotal figure in a war between certain of Faerie's powerful lords and the rest of the strange creatures who live in this exotic realm.

I found this book have a very different fantasy story then I am used to. A mix of the modern man thrown unprepared into the fairy world. It involves murder and mystery and saving the world. Even though I finished the book and found it readable I didn’t find it holding my interest very well. I found the basis of the story is sound but it didn’t have the hook that makes you want to keep reading the next chapter. I couldn’t get involved or find sympathy with any of the characters. I don’t think I will read this book again. I can heartily recommend the author Tad William’s series of Memory, Sorrow and Thorn – Beginning with ‘The Dragonbone Chair’ though. These books kept my interest all the way through with good characters and good story.
