There is a trend around the world these days to seek out the local, the eccentric, the home-made. It’s a natural reaction to globalisation and the drive for relentless uniformity.

Those apples from the market garden down the road might be a bit misshapen, but they’re a variety the big growers no longer cultivate. Their cauliflower might occasionally harbour an alarming-looking caterpillar, but they were freshly harvested only a few hours ago. And it all tastes marvellous.

That hand-made whatnot from the craft fair might have flaws no machine process would permit, but the craftsman will share their techniques and even encourage you to learn some of these skills for yourself.

I found this to book to be a very imaginative and creative story. Ms. Ember’s Jewish faith shines through her characters in this book. This is the first I have read from the series and I found the uses of telepathy within her characters and the plot interesting. I love sci-fi and fantasy and this is the real deal. Although I disagree with the cover art. As someone who has dabbled with Poser and Daz, those characters on the cover give me the willies. No offense!

Thanks for the review, Brenda! Glad you enjoyed it, but I LOVE the cover art, by Aidana Willowraven!

final cover print

Volume II is available everywhere ebooks are sold (links on http://www.sallyember.com on the right of every page) for $3.99.
