I found this book absolutely fantastic. The subject material was quite interesting—i love a good story about the Roma—and the plot was intriguing. The book left on a cliffhanger that was satisfying enough for an ending but made it so that it would be extremely difficult to not pick up the next book.

The two elements I particularly loved were the clothing descriptions (my favorite part of reading court-intrigue novels!) and the fight scenes. Coming from a fencing background, I was gratified to be able to picture the scenes in my head and find that they were plausible.

The only unfortunate thing is the awkward wording in some passages—the kind of thing where it has to be read more than once to fully pick up on the meaning. It seems that the author writes close to the way she speaks, so sometimes the syntax doesn't "translate" well into text. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0756401275, Mass Market Paperback)

They are skilled in the ways of seduction and deception, magic and curses...They are masters in the trade of fine silk, and in the fatal art of poisoning...They are villains and heroes, outlaws and lovers, dreamers and schemers...Legend will call them Gypsies.

The Silken Magic saga begins...
In her full-length fiction debut, short story writer ElizaBeth Gilligan sweeps readers away to a dazzling 17th-century Sicily-and to a mythical kingdom across the water known as Tyrrhia.
It is a world in which magic has the power to shape the course of history-and love has the power to unravel it. Where religions rise, governments fall, and the only thing more powerful than a Gypsy's passion...is a Gypsy's curse.
