Ays been prone to flights of fancy everyone in town remembers the shocking events leading up to Cassie's infamous trial she may have been acuitted but the insanity defense only stretches so farCassandra Tipp has left behind no body just her massive fortune and one final manuscriptThen again there are enough bodies in her past her. This book is an exuisite rarity a faerie book that is at the same time marvellously visual and imaginative but works eually well as a study of human trauma; a love story of sorts; a family drama; a wholly engaging mystery I found it in my ARCS to read pile which this year has been sadly neglected and started it with no great expectation although by the end of the third page I was not only hooked but beginning to think that this might be the best book I'd read all year Anyone who knows me knows how often I find myself disappointed by the payoff of a novel This one maintained the tension right till the end another rarity never veering into over exposition or self indulgence And the faeries are both nicely original and authentically folkloric creepy pagan detailed entrancing I loved it and I sense that I'll be following this author's future work with excitement and admiration She's been places She knows things Follow her; you'll know them too
