Tara Maya has lived in Africa, Europe and Asia. She's pounded sorghum with mortar and pestle in a little clay village where the jungle meets the desert, meditated in a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas and sailed the Volga river to a secret city that was once the heart of the Soviet space program. This first-hand experience, as well as research into the strange and piquant histories of lost civilizations, inspires her writing. Her terrible housekeeping, however, is entirely the fault of pixies.

As she did in the previous novels in this series Tara Maya had me hooked and kept me that way the entire time. I'm loving this series, the culture she has created has depth which is often lacking in other books of this genre. Instead of a simple overview you learn more and more about the customs and culture as the book progresses. The story fits seamlessly together I only wish I wasn't left longing for Kavio and Dindi, will they ever be allow to love? Avoiding common situations in one thing but keeping these two apart is becoming painful. I'm looking forward to the next one, the only thing lacking is that there isn't more for me to read, Ms. Maya, please hurry with the next book, or send me some chapterS to proof I NEED MORE!!!
