"great Celtic read; start of a trilogy (first two books are the strongest); cathartic. Be ready to cry.Highest rated book in my book club for the last 3 years. Better story teller than Zimmer Bradley."
"a fantasy gem debut novel;hard to put down. Stands up in storyline even if the sexual themes are underscored in the reader's mind-Some won't care for that part of the characterization but worth a read"
"One of Burke's wonderful Robicheaux mystery series. Burke is a literary star. Highly readable (all the series) and one shouldn't miss his writing! Some people think he is a little violent, but such good writing."
"I have the old hardbound. Glad they published it again! I fell in love with this novel as a teen and think it has stood the test of time. read it if you like historical romance or a good historical story."
