About the Author
Holly Lisle started the Cadence Drake series back in 1997, and due to circumstances beyond her control, had to wait fifteen years to bring back the first novel, HUNTING THE CORRIGAN'S BLOOD, and write the second. A third, WISHBONE, is next on her schedule after she completes the third YA fantasy, THE EMERALD SUN, in the Moon & Sun series. (Books One and Two were THE RUBY KEY and THE SILVER DOOR. This book is NOT a YA novel.

Once I started reading, I didn't want to put it down. Not only are the characters memorable, the narrative tight and twisty, but Ms. Lisle has a real gift for subtlety. She drops hints and clues throughout the novel.
While you don't need to have read the first book to understand and love the characters in this one, you really should. It is a great book on its own and the sequel blows it out of the water.
There were many times that I was unsure how the characters would survive or even win. The solutions to their problems made sense without being obvious.
I recommend this title to anyone who loves a good story and strong, likable characters to root for. So everyone.
I liked the "Emergency Cookie" reference throughout the book - that added a smile to the story. I also really liked the ending with the character Herog and its future book possibilities (Man, it is hard to write a review without spoilers!).
Can't wait for the next Cadence Drake book! In the meantime, there are a lot more Holly Lisle books for me to read. ;0) She is fast becoming a favorite.
*I don't usually read vampire books because most romanticize the dark and evil, but this series doesn't. Here, Cady fights vampires to save humanity.
Science fiction is not normally a genre I read, but I stumbled on this author in search of writing courses, which she also provides, and I have become engrossed in the worlds she creates.
The story was well-paced, compelling, and the characters were well textured and multi-dimensional. Welcome Back, Cadence!
I will certainly purchase future books in this series, by this author, and will recommend to friends!
