Fantastic - again!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sebastian (Ephemera) (Hardcover)
This book is wonderful and badly needed as a fix after becoming addicted to Anne Bishop's powerful prose!
Once again, Bishop has created a universe which is utterly plausible, despite being somehwat complicated. And, once again, she writes with such fluidity that the strange concepts of the world she has created are quickly and easily explained. Just as the three ply creation of the Black Jewels universe was effortlessly achieved, so is that of the multitudes of landscapes that consitute Ephemera.
The romance in this book is a little less complex and poignant than that of the two main characters in the Black Jewels books and the style of the story is akin to the House of Gaian etc trilogy. It's still wonderful stuff, though, and extremely absorbing.
Just as with all Anne Bishop's books, once I started this I could not put it down and thus have been up all night reading it. I need more - and I need it soon!!
