Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A mystical spiral garden that is also a gateway to another world blooms at the center of Snyder's (The Innamorati) tightly woven fantasy, a potent blend of faery and family conflicts. Cassiopeia Emma Brittman, 17, and Anne, who's more like a sister than a mom, haven't visited her grandfather, Daniel Brittman, in over two years, due to his serious illness. When the hospital calls to let them know the famous artist's condition has worsened, they rush to his side, accompanied by Anne's new boyfriend. They are shocked to find Poppie not only seriously ill but possibly in danger from his secretive caregiver. The family farm has been systematically vandalized, as has the elaborate garden planted by Cassie's great-grandmother, Hannah. The discovery sends a wake-up call to Cassie, who has been preparing for a violin recital, finals and the prom, wholly unaware that two faerie factions, the Green Clan and the Red Clan, have been waging a war for control of the all-important garden. Her mom, the late-blooming college student, receives a similar jolt, and both learn that power of love makes the real magic. Thanks to Snyder's gift for description, readers may feel as if they can hear the music or smell the fragrance of the garden's rare woodland species; the audience will be hooked. Ages 12-up. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-This inventive, beautifully written fantasy tells the story of a seemingly ordinary 17-year-old swept up in the battle between two clans of supernatural beings. Cassie Brittman lives with her mother, Anne, a self-absorbed college student. Despite an unusual family history, she struggles to be a regular teen, practicing her violin and spending time with her boyfriend. When her reclusive grandfather falls ill, her mother forces her to drop everything so that they can rush back to the farm where she was raised. The first half of the story centers on the conflict between Cassie and Anne, whose irresponsible ways often push her daughter into the parental role. However, Snyder drops hints from the beginning-Cassie's green thumb, her odd encounter with a winter hare, a dangerous but strangely alluring boy on a motorcycle-that this is more than a novel about a dysfunctional family. Eventually, Cassie learns the truth: the Brittmans are linked by blood to nature spirits who want her help in fighting a dark and threatening rival clan. Some readers may grow impatient as these secrets are slowly revealed, but they will be riveted by the thrilling battle in the final chapters. Snyder's use of language is especially poetic in describing nature, including the farm's flora and fauna and the magical creatures of the Green Clan. This satisfying mix of real-life problems and lovingly described magic will please most fantasy readers.-Miranda Doyle, San Francisco Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
A teenager and her mother are caught between opposing forces of nature magic in this atmospheric, if deliberately paced, fantasy. News that her grandfather, a renowned, reclusive painter of fantasy landscapes, is in the hospital draws Cassie and her mother Anne to his isolated farmhouse, which they find in a state of moldy ruin. What’s happened? Shuttling between the farm and the Intensive Care Unit, Cassie encounters one enigmatic sign or eldritch creature after another—most of which no one else, except perhaps her secretive, mercurial mother, seems to notice. A mysterious fiddler, a weirdly seductive biker, a frighteningly violent neighbor, and a strange, spiral garden planted by Cassie’s great-grandmother Hannah are all pieces of a puzzle that isn’t fully assembled until near the end. As it turns out, two powers are struggling for control of one of the few unspoiled places left to them, and Cassie’s Poppy has made a bargain with the more rational, less brutal one that is failing along with his life. With the help of Hannah’s journal, Cassie gradually pieces together her family’s central role in an ancient struggle, and emerges from the deadly climactic confrontation ready to take up the task of protecting the farm’s powerful but fragile residents. Like the tales Cassie remembers her mother telling, this is "filled with wonderment and botany," as well as music, deep relationships between generations, and complex, evocative magic-working. (Fiction. 12-15)

    Okay

    I think that it was a pretty good book. But there are some things i didn't like. I still like how there are worlds and how faeries are involved. In the beggining you don't get some things but then in the end you are like'Ohhhhhhhh'.
