And his biggest problem is admitting that magic exists at all...A novel of incomparable scope and brimming with atmospheric detail: in a world where heart hounds stalk the boundaries for unwary human prey, blood-sucking flies hunt on behalf of their underworld masters, and where artists can draw more than your likeness, there is no place to hide, nowhere safe. Here magic makes love twice as sweet, betrayal and loss twice as bitter.Read Less

This book was recomended to me by my fiance and we bought the CD so we could sit and listen to it together. He had listened to it years ago, and couldn't stop talking about it. In fact, he talked about it sooo much, that I decided to buy it and listen for myself. It was well worth the buy. I cant wait to get the rest of the set!

This was by far one of my favorite books ever. My father tried to get me to read this book for years and I put it off until last summer. I read it nearly from cover to cover. I couldnt stop myself from reading. I literally would wake up, read it, take a nap and read it when I awoke.
The story is so engrossing and you can just feel what the characters are going through. This is a must read!

Absolutely worth the money
The book started off with actions right away. It's a change from many books that builds up slowly. This sucks you into the story right away. Before you know it, events start to unfold fast. I love the details of the main characters. Each of their emotions are carefully layed out for the readers to savor, to experience and immerse into each character, bad or good ones. I find myself constantly going back to previous pages to find clues relating to the events I was reading about. So I can totally understand it. Definitely a must read, besides The LOTR.
