I am avid reader and writer, and have been since I was a child. I have a varied taste in literature, ranging from the classics to pagan, from fiction to non-fiction, and sometimes I even enjoy a spot of poetry.
It is three days since Andromache Jones suffered her ordeal at the hands of The Magician and she doesn't know what to do with herself. She doesn't think that she is up to working. She is not very keen on the idea of getting out of bed. In truth, all she wants is to be left alone. Unlucky for her, Jean Pottersworth is very persistent. Does she have a case that might chase away Mac's blues?
Andromache Jones has somehow managed to capture the attention of The Magician and finds herself caught up in The Game, his challenge that has very real life and death consequences, and not only for her. Can she complete the test he has set in the allotted time and live to see another day, or will failure, and The Magician triumph?
This was a great find! The stories are of a darker nature compared to more modern fairy tales as they focus on the traditional character of the fae. I enjoyed each installment and liked the way the book was written. Brilliant.
I really enjoyed reading this book; it nicely combines a twist on the traditional vampire story with an evocative window into the Jewish community of centuries gone by. This is an excellent short story and is well worth a read!
