BookClub Magazine, March 2005

“This is a fast-paced tale and Kean successfully uses all the senses

to draw readers in.  Rexana is a strong woman with inner passions,

While Fane must fight the demons of his own haunted past.   The

secondary characters, from the servants to the peasants, are finely

drawn, too, and help bring this tale to life.”
