Talented story teller and gifted writer

Cherie Priest is an amazing writer. She mixes excellent story telling with mystery, suspense, horror, and a dark sense of humor.

Keeping track of the names in the family tree was a little difficult. However, the author gave very good descriptions of the characters and engrossing details of their surroundings. The author held my attention at each episode, however there were some questions about the story that still leave me guestioning its significance. For example: The mysterious 'Book'! Whatever happened to it????? The story goes into deep detail about the characters efforts in trying to retrieve this special 'Book' and then the author drops the subject as if it never was mentioned in the story. Then there's a part in the story that the heroine boldly (& stupidly) drinks some smelly mysterious unknown liquid that was found in a vial in a relatives house in which she felt impending harm to herself - a stretch on the imagination. I wish the author had given explanation on the relationship with 'John Gray' (the sorcerer) and the heroines grandfather 'Avery'. You're left with another void trying to figure out what caused Avery to turn evil. Even with the unaswered questions, the author has a easy to read writing style and the book is a good past time read.

    Frustrating!

    I read book 2 first (Wings to the Kingdom) and really liked it. I naturally assumed this one would be even better. Wrong. The premise is strong, the characters are intriguing and Priest is a talented writer. However, this book needed a skilled editor to keep the story moving where it stalled and to develop certain plot lines more effectively. And the errors! Embarrassing that certain spelling/grammatical mistakes, typos, and worst of all, s cene conflicts were not caught/corrected. So overall a respectable effort by Priest, but I can't really recommend it unless you've nothing better to read.
