Since her first published fantasy in 1982 - The Time of the Dark - Barbara Hambly has touched most of the bases in genre fiction. She has written mysteries, horror, mainstream historicals, graphic novels, sword-and-sorcery fantasy, romances, and Saturday Morning Cartoons. Born and raised in Southern California, she attended the University of California, Riverside, and spent one year at the University of Bordeaux, France. She married science fiction author George Alec Effinger, and lived part-time in New Orleans for a number of years. In her work as a novelist, she currently concentrates on horror (the Don Simon Ysidro vampire series) and historical whodunnits, the well-reviewed Benjamin January novels, though she has also written another historical whodunnit series under the name of Barbara Hamilton.
Professor Hambly also teaches History part-time, paints, dances, and trains in martial arts. Follow her on Facebook, and on her blog at livejournal.com.
Now a widow, she shares a house in Los Angeles with several small carnivores.

I've always loved Barbara Hambly's fantasy books. This one is in the world of Darwath, after all the adventures in the Darwath series. I think it would stand alone perfectly well if you haven't read the series, but in some of the details might be a tiny spoiler for the series. (Which I'd seriously recommend reading.)
She manages a really spooky atmosphere on this. Its a really good mystery/magic/adventure story with an excellent twist. Up to her usual high standards.
