About the Author
Susan Alison paints pictures and writes stories for a living, and her cafetière is always hot. Dogs tend to enter into the pictures, and the prose, quite a lot, Susan living under the paw as she does. Monty and Rosie (and Jeff-Dog now, too) are her Border Collies - they keep an eye on her artwork to make sure she keeps earning kibble, and every now and then they round it up and post it to her artwork blog. See the bottom of any page on her website at www.SusanAlison.com to sign up for her infrequent newsletter detailing new releases. Susan Alison is the Katie Fforde Bursary Award winner for 2011. She has won competition awards for short fiction and sold numerous stories to commercial publications. She writes romantic comedies, urban fantasy, books of illustrated doggerel, and short stories.

Still one of the most original voices in fiction today, Susan Alison turns her hand to urban fantasy. It has her signature quirky comic style and believable characters that make it a joy to read. Heroine Lily gets swept into an age old conflict between kindness and cruelty, with a whole other world hanging in the balance. From the title I assume this is the first book in a series, but it read like a self contained novel - I didn't feel cheated at the end like I have felt with some series books. The ending brought a tear to my eye (in a good way!) and that doesn't happen often. One thing to note - if you don't like dogs, you won't like this book!

Absolutely fantastic fantasy book, Susan Alison has slipped seamlessly from romantic comedies to this urban fantasy which still retains elements of her usual sense of humour . I love this book....and can't wait for the next part!

An amazing and magical journey. I have read many books within this genre and truly fell in love with the characters in this story. I can't wait for the next story and I hope, many more in the series.

This is a very entertaining and well-written fantasy adventure. I enjoyed the humour linked to the main character's efforts to communicate with the mysterious dog that suddenly enters her life. I was also gripped by the presence of evil in the story - the reader is never certain whether or not seemingly innocent figures are as they appear. The style is excellent and there is ample evidence at the end that more adventures are forthcoming. I am looking forward to reading future books in this series.
