    Surprisingly fresh and entertaining variation on the paranormal mystery/romance. Wren Valere is not a magically capable thief -- she's a Retriever, using her skills to help clients get back things they have lost or had stolen.

Wren Valere is not a magically capable thief -- she's a Retriever, using her skills to help clients get back things they have lost or had stolen. Her partner Sergei handles the business end, and it's been a good partnership for 10 years -- strictly business, of course. These two characters anchor an interesting and large cast.

    The banter is bright, the plot has plenty of turns, and the world Gilman creates is layered, complex and believable. She has a light hand, creating it with hints and opinions and avoiding too many long explanations. It shares certain stylistic elements with other books (Weather Wardens and Dresden Files come to mind) but isn't quite as dark as those series. Of course, that may change.

    I found this first book in the series an addictive read, and I'm eager to get into the next book in the series.

    Great plot and characters

    I was drawn in by the cover of this book. Then I read the description and started reading it as soon as I got home. I enjoyed all of the creative characters and can't wait till the second novel comes out!!!! I think its this summer but if you want to know just read her web site.
