– Chapter 16
Carpenter has once again woven a wonderful story from the threads of history, mythology, art, fact and fantasy all laced together with emotion—love, hate, faith, betrayal, fear and fortitude. Her ability to create characters that are at once flawed and perfect is a delight to experience. I have cherished each volume in the Bohemian Trilogy and look forward to what Ms. Carpenter will write next.
– Killer Nashville (Book of the Day)
A satisfying conclusion to Carpenter’s complex blend of ancient Biblical history and supernatural thriller; like all the best of this genre, the cosmic setting is the backdrop for what is really an intimate portrait of human choices and the difficult decision to love in the face of betrayal.
