READER AND RAELYNX
The fourth book in the Twelve Houses series
is a simply stellar novel from beginning to end. Cammon and Amalie are wonderful protagonists, and it's a joy to see their relationship develop against the painstakingly
built world of Gillengaria. And Shinn's denouement is a thoroughly satisfying resolution of one of the ongoing conflicts of the series.
Cam starts to believe that Amalie is a mystic -- for not only can she shield her thoughts from him, she has the ability to control the ferocious raelynx. In a world that is increasingly unfriendly to mystics, this is most definitely a dangerous belief. (Ace, Nov., 432 pp., $24.95)
