Synopsis

Sora Fallcrest always dreamed of adventure, but as a member of the nobility, she learned the ways of a Lady instead. Now seventeen, she is expected to choose a husband and marry. She plots to run away, but just as she is stepping out the door, she runs into a mysterious man--and is kidnapped.

Abducted from her manor, Sora is plunged into a world of magical races, arcane jewelry and forgotten lore. She finds herself at the mercy of a dangerous assassin, haunted by an even darker past. She yearns for freedom, but he won't let her go--not when her Cat's Eye necklace is the only thing that can save his life.

But the necklace itself presents a problem. It is an ancient device from the long forgotten War of the Races, and its magic has the ability to steal souls. Can Sora learn to wield its power -- or will the power wield her? (Winner of the SKOW 2006 Best Fantasy Award)

    Can't wait to read the next in the series!!

    I loved the characters and how they still were relatibly human, with flaws and imperfections in their characters. I think that this is one of the most fantastic books that I've read so far and I really cannot wait to read the next in the series.

    Enthralling

    T.L. Shreffler weaves a story of a girl in the midst of figuring out who she is, who she wants to be, and how to reconcile these with the at times terrifying things that are happening to her. As she goes, she learns that the world is never as black and white as she grew up believing. I stumbled across this book, and have fallen completely head over heels in love with this world. It doesn't stop here, this story snags the imagination through every installment. I eagerly await the next (last?) book, Kraits Redemption, and my mind is on fire with the possibilities

    Great

    These days I find it hard to find books that will hold my attention for more than the first chapter, but this one did just that, and kept me reading rigt until the very end. Now i feel i need to read the rest of the series, very well done.
