    1. This book is a seamless blend of fantasy, historical fiction, and murder mystery. The characters come to life from the first page and entwine with your soul in such a way that it lingers with you when you put the book down. Unlike many murder intrigues, where the clues are either totally obscured till the last minute or way too easy to follow, the plots and clues in this book are complex without being obscure or overwhelming. The author draws you into her world so completely that you can see you [...]

    2. A rich world based on an alternate history in Sicily with a beautifully drawn Romani culture as part of it. Watching the characters deal with threat, danger and the realities of this world while influenced by real characters in history is fascinating. The author's deep knowledge and respect of the Rom world is evident in her world-building and her characterizations. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

    3. Interesting premise, very likable heroine, and realistic relationships between characters make this a strong first novel. Heavy reliance on the idea of a sequel kind of put me off, because I think in the last third it turned into an issue of questionable pacing rather than suspense, but I'm still intrigued enough to want to read the rest.

    4. This alternate magical history is set in a fictional Italian city state following a Gyspy magic user married to a Duke. She goes to court to investigate her sister's death and must walk the line between her Gypsy heritage and what is socially acceptable. It took me awhile to get into this one but once I did I found it thoroughly engrossing. The wide variety of subplots was very engaging and added a new spice to what could have been a very predictable plotline.

    5. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a little slow starting but quickly took a turn for fantastic. After her sister's murder, Luciana, a Gypsy married to a brother in law to the King, declares vendetta. There are many twists and turns to the plot and it is soon revealed that it was a plot against the king and the royal family that started everything. The Catholic Church, with a evil Cardinal who dabbles in black magic is a definite difference in this novel.
