Overview

Return to New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop’s Ephemera, a world of strange and magical landscapes connected only by bridges—bridges that may transport you where you truly belong, rather than where you wish to go.

When wizards threaten Glorianna Belladonna and her work to keep Ephemera balanced, her brother, Lee, sacrifices himself in order to save her—and ends up an Asylum inmate in the city of Vision, far away from all he knows.

But a darkness is spreading through Vision, perplexing the Shamans who protect it—and Lee is the only one who can shed any light on its mysteries....

INCLUDES THE EPHEMERA NOVELLA “THE VOICE”

Publishers Weekly
Bishop adds a third chapter (after Sebastian and Belladonna) to the story of the living world Ephemera. Protagonist Lee is a Bridge, able to join disparate chunks of the fractured world. Still dealing with his disquiet over the deep changes in his sister, Glorianna Belladonna, whose act of self-sacrifice saved Ephemera but split her personality, Lee is taken prisoner by evil wizards who want to use him to get to his family. Blinded and imprisoned in an asylum in the distant city of Vision, Lee finds an unlikely ally in the asylum’s Keeper, a shaman named Danyal, and an even less likely romance with his caretaker, Zhahar. Together, they must face the threat that ambushed Lee and now looms over Vision, even as Zhahar’s magical secrets add a new complication. Strong on world-building but light on action, Bishop’s romantic fantasy focuses more on character interaction than on exploring the possibilities set up by its premise. Agent: Jennifer Jackson, the Donald Maass Agency. (Mar.)

I love these stories and every single character. Bishop is the queen of dream weaving.

I love how Anne Bishop weaves her stories together. Her world Ephemera is bright and beautiful and full of possibilities. This is Belladonna's brothers story. Let him tell of his angst and Self loathing. Let him explain how he has doubts about the most important person in his life his sister Glorianna Belladonna. He finds love but more importantly he finds strength in himself to face his fears and love his sister dispite her many powers. This is my review my name is Huffie.

You can count on Anne to bring you bizarre worlds. Bridge relies a little too much on gimmicks established in earlier Ephemera stories. It's entertaining, don't get me wrong, it makes for a poor stand alone book (so don't try to read this one first). Enjoyed the new characters, the deeper look into ever changing landscapes, a better understanding of Lee and Belladonna. Sorry to see a few dark characters less dangerous. Will continue with series.

This is the last of the Ephemera  trilogy. The first book is Sebastian.       It took me a little while to get into this installment. I think the issue was the time between the last book and this one, taking place a month later. The issue I had was the change in Lee. I won't go into details, because I hate spoilers, but I think if the lapse of time was a few days leading to a month later, and the reader could follow Lee from the time of his sister's return, then I really think I could have re-immersed into the books world faster than what I did.      Once I got into the story, I really enjoyed it. It definitely the Anne Bishop style I know. This installment was well balanced. Enough character growth, action, and emotion. New and interesting characters grab you and pull you deeper into the story. The only issue: and this is more on a personal interest, if you read the story, besides like I've said before, no spoilers. But I was curious about the question Teaser wanted answered, and it never was.      Otherwise, an ending that did leave room for more tales, but left the reader satisfied, for the most part. Definitely, enjoyed visiting the wild child and the people who live with him.
