Overview

One day, without warning, Jasmyn's husband Liam dies of an aneurysm. Wrapped up in her grief, Jasmyn is trapped in a world without color, without flavor, without Liam. But even through the haze of misery she begins to notice strange events. Things are not as they should be, and eventually Jasmyn begins to explore the mysteries that have sprung up after her husband's death. The mysteries turn out to be deeper than Jasmyn expects, and she quickly finds herself immersed in a magical story of swans, castles, and bones; of murder and a vicious battle between brothers; of a lost past and a stolen love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Effectively fuses theological fantasy with psychological mystery to create a gripping narrative."  —The Guardian, on The Ninth Circle

"As an exercise in sustaining a fantasy world, it's impressive."  —SFX

"Bell's strength lies in fusing fairytale and psychological suspense in a compelling modern narrative, combined with effective characterisation. Bell charts original territory with considerable charm."  —Guardian

"I was reminded of Neil Gaiman. But the mix of wonder, creepy paranoia, and disjointed dream-logic Bell brings to her tale of love, loss, revenge, and redemption is distinctively her own . . . a deft and incisive exploration of myths and romance, distinguished by flashes of true imaginative power."  —Realms of Fantasy
