Not up to author's standardsReviewed in Canada on 28 February 2014
This allegorical tale did not keep my interest unlike the myriad of her other books which I have enjoyed. I wanted to enjoy this character and experience an adventure vicariously but found myself unmoved. This story was not up to the usual standard set by this author. I found the protaganist flat and unimaginative rather than the living breathing characters that usually inhabit all her series. Hoping things would pick up after several attempts to get into the book I started jumping ahead only to find more of the same. While the author seems to be exploring a new writing style to express a thoughtful philosophical and moral point of view, there still needs to be an engaging story used as the vehicle to propel this view. This book sadly ran out of gas at the starting line.
Beware all ye who enter into this book!Reviewed in the United States on 23 January 2001
I have always loved Ms. Perry's Victorian mysteries. As a scifi fan, I looked forward to her first foray into new worlds. Well, this ...I hesitate to call this mishmash a novel...publication is truly terrible. It lacks everything that makes good fantasy and has everything that makes bad fantasy and pretensious religion! This abomination should have a sign on it "for Mormons only." A waste of time, a waste of money, and a waste of environmental resources.

Sorry I paid for this bookReviewed in the United States on 10 July 2013
I love Anne Perry and I am impressed with her ability to write such a book but it was not for me. Too much repetition. No plot to speak of. I read for pleasure. This was too deep for me.

I was so disappointed in this book that I thought an imposter wrote it. Alas, that is not the case. If you love or even enjoy Anne Perry's historical fiction, do not read the fantasy books.
