Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Stranded by mischance on the planet Ivory, Theodora of Pyrene uses her small talent to read fortunes to support herself until a commission by a sorcerer of the powerful Cormallon family involves her in a web of deceit and murder on a world where magic and technology combine forces. Romantic suspense and exotic local color lend spice to this sf/fantasy debut. For most fantasy collections.-- JC

I agree that Doris Egan is a wonderful writer. I loved her IVORY series.
I learned from her website that she is now writing under the name 'Jane Emerson'. Under that name she has written CITY OF DIAMONDS. She also has a story in the book SIRENS AND OTHER DEMON LOVERS.
Under any name, long may she write!

This is the first book of a trilogy, but can stand on its own. It is well-written, plus it has a good plot and characters you want to root for. I definitely recommend it. Those who already know and love Doris Egan's books might be interested to know that she wrote another book under the name "Jane Emerson."

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Stranded on a "backwards" planet, the heroine ends up in a no-exit job with a magician. Our no-nonsense heroine of course doesn't believe in magic but is soon "illusioned". Adaptation is the theme of this story, as the heroine learns the perils and the pearls of Ivory. I love it I love it I love it. In this utterly unAusten world, the heroine reminds me of Emma.

I love this trilogy! I've never seen these books anywhere but the most out of the way bookstores, and I just have to wonder - what's wrong with people that they don't love this author? A wonderful first book in a group of stand-alone books with wonderful characters, an original detailed world and just great stories.
