Make sure you look for the paperback version of RHAPSODY (4 .5), the debut book of a great new fantasy talent, Elizabeth Haydon. She begins an epic saga worthy of Eddings, Goodkind and Jordan as she twists the strands of time to bring two people together who would otherwise have never met. That encounter will reverberate through time and change everything. First, however, we follow the adventures of a young woman who falls into the company of two mysterious strangers fleeing a deadly demon. Their ensuing journey will change her almost beyond recognition as she faces unspeakable evil and discovers unexpected camaraderie with her unusual companions. Beautifully rendering a mythological backdrop with a Welsh sheen, Ms. Haydon proves herself to be a spellbinding storyteller with the rare ability to manage a wealth of memorable characters with both intimacy and power. (Hardcover published September 1999)
