    Fantastic fantasy novel. It did take a little bit to get into but once you know the characters and know what is going on you cant put it down! Then I was so happy to find Rhiannon's Ride also after this series of books. Definitely worth reading!!!

    Read this series when it first came out and loved it then. Have gone back to this series again just recently and have to say it is just as good now as it was then. Reliving all of of Isabeau's and even Finn the Cat's adventures has been a thrill fantasy ride all over again. This is the first series that set me off on my fantasy book reading journey as well as defining my interest in the Craft. I thank you so much Kate and look forward to catching up with your other novels which are equally just as good as this series is.
