    The Best Yet from Gilman

    I really enjoyed this book. I especially enjoyed having the character P.B. developed further. I truly think that this book is her best yet-while it is more than likely too complex to a newcomer, that is the price you pay for not reading a series from the beginning. There is a reason this book is part of a series! This book also has some great storylines that show Wren branching out and learning to make 'and keep' friends. Wren is learning to trust and Gilman is able to show that in a human way with a touch of comedy. This book shows a more feminine side to Wren. Gilman is breath of fresh air in the fantasy genere. Too many female fantasy authors have jumped on the band wagon of having their female protagonist become promiscuous, to say it nicely. Wren may not be a choir girl but she isn't cheap either.

    Fantastic romantic urban fantasy

    The Cosa Nostradamus is the magical community consisting of three major groups the council of mages, the lone jacks who are independent operators, and the fatae, the non-human species. Wren is a Retriever, a thief who uses her talent magic to steal things that her clients want. Her lover Sergei is a null (no magical talent) who left the organization of the Silence, a group who protect humans from larger darker forces to become an entrepreneur.------------- Both are loners but in the present climate, Wren can no longer stay on the sidelines. For years the fae were attacked and the lone jacks did nothing and now a vigilante group founded by an unknown organization is killing lone jacks. The fatae and the lone jacks for the first time in history along with the council organize a truce to find out who the enemy is and neutralize them. When a target is killed, by nulls and those who have talent, the truce is broken and the council withdraws. However the fatrae and the lone jacks are united in their determination to strike out at the enemy while Wren and Sergei are lovers fearing every step they take will make matters worse. A confrontation is coming and when it happens it will change alliances.----------------- Laura Anne Gilman writes some of the best supernatural fantasy on the market today. BURNING BRIDGES is a fantastic urban fantasy thriller with loads of action, protagonists that are likeable and understandable and a conspiracy that hides in the shadows using disposable minions to further its aims. Wren is a strong willed person while Sergei is a tortured soul who is tugged between two opposing groups who have claims on his loyalties. Readers will await the next installment in this series to see how the coming war bears out.----------------- Harriet Klausner
