"Alchemy, herbal magic, and mystery work together to create a fascinating and exotic tale of fantasy intrigue."-"Library Journal""An unusual and successful blend of fantasy and mystery. . . . Familiarity with the previous books in the series isn't necessary, as the authors provide just the right amount of background on Astreiant for readers to get their bearings. . . . A page-turner that is sure to win them new fans." - "Publishers Weekly ""A fantasy of manners, a mystery, and a swashbuckler all at the same time. Through it all it maintains an almost Shakespearian sensibility, infused with the spirit of the theater where much of the action occurs." - "Lambda Book Report"
