I absolutely adored this book. Once again Marie-Louise has recreated history in a way which transports the reader. This is the kind of book which you will be unable to put down. The inclusion of shape-shifters and psychic abilities fits perfectly with the pagan setting and the characters are so entirely believable, not perfect but easy to empathize with and absolutely of their era. If you have enjoyed her books before you won't be disappointed, if not start now. This book will appeal to any reader aged 10 and upwards who enjoys historical drama and romance. Try this if you like Mary Hooper, Celia Rees, Mary Hoffman, Meg Rosoff or Eva Ibbotson.
