About the Author

Sharon Lee has been married to her first husband for more than half her lifetime; she is a friend to cats, a member of the National Carousel Association, and oversees the dubious financial schemes of an improbable number of stuffed animals. Despite having been born in a year of the dragon, Sharon is an introvert. She lives in Maine because she likes it there. In, fact, she likes it so much that she's written four novels set in Maine: mysteries Barnburner, and Gunshy, as well as contemporary fantasies Carousel Tides and Carousel Sun. With the aforementioned first husband, Steve Miller, Sharon has written eighteen novels of science fiction and fantasy–many of them set in the Liaden Universe® –and numerous short stories. She has occasionally been an advertising copywriter, a reporter, photographer, book reviewer, and secretary. For three years, she was executive director of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and was subsequently elected vice president, and then president of that organization.

You can enjoy this without having read the other two in the series (Carousel Tides and Carousel Sun) - I left it sitting in the living room and my husband, who hasn't read the others, is now halfway through it - but really, I recommend you buy them all and read them in order for maximum enjoyment. The worldbuilding has a strong sense of place and similarly the magic of many of the characters is linked to their home territory. The Maine town of Archer's Beach and its amusement park are vivid and real. There are regular townfolk - although some can hear the music at Midsummer - and alongside them live the not-quite-human. If you've read the other books, you'll enjoy seeing more of the characters (and a few new ones) and learning more about the continuing story of the carousel that is also a World Gate. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed it immensely. Only sad because this is the third book in the series. Afraid that there might not be another one.
