    Captivating!!!

    I just lost the last 5 days of my life reading 'The Arm of the Stone' and 'The Garden of the Stone'. I've read a lot of fantasy, and rarely have I been captivated as quickly and as thoroughly as with these two books. I look forward to reading more of her works--this had such a satisfactory ending that I suppose there will not be a sequel. Superlative vision and skill in weaving such a fine tale.

    Destiny and choice

    Victoria Strauss expands upon the themes of technology, spirituality and human nature she took up in THE ARM OF THE STONE. This story of parallel worlds divided by the choice to use either mindpower or handpower moves in unexpected and satisfying new directions as a legend's daughter fulfills her own destiny. Strauss introduces intriguing new characters and details the sometimes painful enlightenment of familiar ones. THE GARDEN OF THE STONE makes some interesting points about mankind's nature and destiny, avoiding the obvious position of cheerleading magic and boo-ing technology. Thoughtfully and with finesse, this novel holds a mirror free of enchantment up to humanity, posing hard questions and exposing weaknesses that we might yet, with no little difficulty, overcome. May Victoria Strauss bless her readers with a long and fruitful career.
