About Katherine Lampe

Some people posit that Katherine Lampe is a construct capable of existing in multiple realities simultaneously. Others maintain that she is a changeling, or at least has a large proportion of non-human blood. It is possible that her brain is the result of a government experiment, although which government is uncertain and as of this date none has claimed responsibility.

I loved this second installment in the Caitlin Ross series. The characters are so well-developed and the scenes so incredibly detailed that it's easy to imagine walking alongside Caitlin and Timber in Gordarosa. I was also happy to see that the complex Tintri Fionn made an appearance as well. Caitlin and Timber have become very dear to me and I can't wait to see what's in store for them next! Well done Katherine!

This second in the Caitlin Ross series continues to impress with multiple complex characters and action that sweeps you along into the story without becoming overwhelming. The end offers resolution while inviting me along for the next part of the ride, which I find refreshing!!!

One of the things I enjoy about Ms Lampe's character development is that nothing is absolute. The characters are neither inherently good or inherently evil, which is what you find often times in fantasy work. The characters are complex with many layers, much like an onion. Turning the pages reveals a new layer, moulding the characters into people that really could be our neighbors. I feel like I know Caitlin, Timber, and Breda personally - I'm transported into the midst of the story and just love that about Katherine's work!

I enjoyed this one so much that as soon as I finished it I started on the next one (who needs sleep anyhow? :)). And, I just finished that one as well! I'm very much looking forward to The Parting Glass - thank you, Katherine, for sharing these stories with us!

This book assures the reader that author Katherine Lampe is not just a one book writer. This second book in the Caitlin Ross series is engaging, fully realized and VERY difficult to put down (or turn off as the case may be). Caitlin and Timber become even more fully developed and familiar, and the supporting cast is made up of totally "real" people.
The "behind-the-scenes" look at the festival scene is illuminating and fun in Lampe's now familiar slightly cutting style.
And let us not forget the magic, plenty of gritty, troublesome, dangerous, and very effective magic. Lampe takes on that most capricious of magics, the wish, in this installment, reaffirming the old saying, "be careful what you wish for."
Caitlin's interactions with her patron gods are both a little humorous and slightly terrifying, as they should be.
After reading this volume, you may never experience a local festival the same again.

The second book in the Caitlin Ross series is even better than the first. The setting (a small town festival) is vivid. I really care about a lot of the human characters; they have a variety of realistic motives. The gods and demons that Caitlin has to interact with to solve the mystery are mysterious, thrilling, and scary. Caitlin's magic and its terrifying effects are beautifully described.
