"She writes darn good books, our Barbara!"
"FIRST-RATE HIGH FANTASY . . . ELEGANT, INTELLIGENT, AND ENTERTAINING."
–Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"I might be slightly prejudiced for dragons, and I am definitely prejudiced in favor of anything Barbara Hambly wants to do with her main characters, Lord John and Jenny . . . She handles the action with great skill and charm, and the universe with beautiful imagery."
