Jan Siegel has taken the material of a hundred good children's fantasies and woven a story which hovers, like her heroine, on the brink of being fully adult, with the visionary power that often comes from inhabiting the threshold between states. Her handling of shopworn questions--the paradoxes of time, the price of souls and the sinking of Atlantis--is as fresh and remarkable as fantasy gets; this impressive first novel is a classic in the making, and, it is to be hoped, the debut of a brilliant career. --Roz Kaveney, Amazon.co.uk --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

I liked the first half of the book. The young girl in the possibly haunted house with an elemental man/mage/thing lurking outside really got me interested. Read morePublished on May 4, 2006 by W. Boyd
