Overview

From the moment Jane entered the city, she found herself a pawn in a dangerous game between rivals unknown to her. With no real memory of who she is or where she came from, Jane embarks on a quest to uncover her past as well as discover who it is she promised to meet.

Fraught with danger, her journey draws her the protection of the guardsman Derax, the cousel of the great Lady Ellowyn, and the most surprising of all, warning of plots and betwrayal by the most powerful oracle in the city.

Along this journey to discover herself, Jane encounters a city peopled by the strange, the wonderful, the terrible...and so much more.

By quest's end, she must begin to wonder if Shadeside itself has a stake in her success - as if there could be any doubt...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Editor and writer Brozek (In a Gilded Light) offers solid fantasy that tempers some clichéd adjectives (dark elves are “ebony”) and ill-conceived names (e.g., the axe-warrior Derax) with solid world-building and a good gothic plot line. In the mysterious city of Shadeside, where people show up from different times and worlds, a woman named Jane appears, having lost her memories. She’s adopted by a family of dark elves, and she and Derax head out to the seedier parts of the city in search of both her identity and the flickering memories of her true love, a man named Gil. Much of the book seems designed as an introduction to the shared world of Shadeside, introducing different denizens (a card-reading seer, a group of fantasy-world traceurs, an honorable cannibal-for-hire) and landmarks like the Ghost Clock, but Jane’s quest coalesces nicely near the end. (Apr.)
