Editorial Reviews


“Barbara is a fabulously talented writer who can write well in any genre.” —Charlaine Harris

"The novel is set among the film-makers in 1923 Los Angeles. Everything is described in a highly evocative, sensual manner so that as a reader, you can see the scenery clearly in your inner eye, hear the sounds, and almost smell the smells. A lot of information about Hollywood's early history and the making of silent movies is included yet Barbara Hambly never begins to bore with lengthy descriptions. Instead she seamlessly inserts details that the narrator observes or considers at a given moment and that are relevant to her situation right then." — Rike Hortsmann, All About Romance

"It’s fascinating, well written, fast paced, and packed with tension leading to a dynamite ending. It’s also got a sweet romance between a woman who thought her heart was dead and a fantastic hero who’s probably a good four inches shorter than she is, bearded and who wears glasses. Readers who want to experience an unusual hero need look no further …The wealth of period detail, the pulse pounding ending, the complex characters, the tight narrative, and three wonderful little dogs make Bride of the Rat God a winner for me." — Dear Author

From the Publisher

Even though I don't usually read fantasy, I read this book because of the interesting setting--Hollywood in the 1920s. A strange setting for magic, so I had to find out how Hambly could make it work. And she does. This is an enjoyable romp--and if you're an SF editor who reads Fantasy for fun on the subway, this book is just the ticket.

                                --Ellen Key Harris, Editor, Del Rey Books
