From Barnes & NobleA modern woman suffering from tinnitus (a severe ringing in the ears) finds relief when she stumbles into another world. She finds danger there, landing as she does in the middle of a war, but also an unexpected talent since she proves adept at the world's magical system, which is based upon intricately painted patterns reminiscent of Celtic knotwork. Jones's many fresh touches lift her novel above some of the more standard high-fantasy elements that are also a part of the book. She also bucks the trend and presents the whole story in one volume without sacrificing either detail or scope.
—Charles de Lint
