The last book in Ms. Murphy's "duology" about Lara Jansen's continuing transformation from an expert tailor to Truthseeker, from Boston to the Barrow-lands (Faerie). In Wayfinder, Lara is seeking her lover, Daffyd ap Caerwyn, a Fae prince. Her search leads her through the Barrow-lands to the lands under the sea, fearing her lover is dead, but knowing through her special Truthseeker talent that he is neither dead nor alive. Walk with Lara as she uncovers a plot to take over all of Faerie through assassination and manipulation. Armed with her talent and her magical and often malevolently sentient staff, Lara must locate Daffyd and try to save Faerie from ultimate destruction. For the full journey, read "Truthseeker" first, then "Wayfinder". Prepare yourself for non-stop action fraught with magic and mystery.

I enjoy C. E. Murphy, and had great anticipation/expectations for this second book in the series. It was well written, pulled on many fairytale references. I felt the first in the series was a much stronger presentation, I lost some sympathy for the heroine in this book. Possibly, because she went from a human with a quirky ability to someone not as clearly defined by her human qualities.

Dafydd ap Caerwyn the elf from the Faerie Barrow-lands sought in the mortal realm a Truthseeker, a person who could tell veracity from lies. He finds her in Boston; Lara Jansen agrees to help him determine who killed his brother Merrick. A witness says he committed fratricide, but he knows he is innocent. It turns out that Merrick was responsible and the witness saw an illusion. A severely injured Dafydd is sent back to his world in the hopes that the healers there who use magic can cure his injuries. Lara follows him from earth and discovers he was near death and the healers couldn't help him so he was placed in the Drowned Lands in the vague hope he might heal. Lara and Aerin the elf woman go there to ascertain whether Dafydd was healed. Before they reach him the sea god Lyr informs her she might find her beloved if she passes the trials and when they do they find Daffyd alive he learns Merrick will go to any lengths to get what he wants. The trio must get back to Dafydd's father before Merrick reaches him, but instead they find themselves back on earth. The direct sequel to Truthseeker is an outstanding urban fantasy that effortlessly moves back and forth between the two planes. In the Barrow-lands, the Seelie and Unseelie are on the brink of a civil war due to the latter believing that the former drowned their lands. The stay in Boston is disastrous but they can't fix what was destroyed as time is running out with Barrow-land royal rules dictating the politics. C.E. Murphy provides a strong voice as the truth may set Daffyd free but at what cost? Harriet Klausner
