    Definitely one for the urban fantasy fans Co written by Megan Lindholm Robin Hobb and Steven Brust, the book mixes Hungarian folkloric archetypes with a story of modern police and teens I suspect that Lindholm wrote the folklore inspired characters, because some of them, especially the title character, reminded me of her early book Wizard of the Pigeons There ar

    This was a great read I m really surprised it doesn t have a much better rating from readers Perhaps the masses don t like to be challenged in their reading choices This book was a bit confusing for a while with a lot of different characters many having multiple names and a bunch of different story lines going on but that s what i loved about it Everything came together at
