A young woman's unlikely love saves the soul of an evil vampyre in Meredith Ann Pierce's classic fantasy. "Easily the year's best fantasy."--The New York Times "Seductive . . . bewitching . . . unique. A brilliant fantasy."--Boston Globe
As for the negative reviews: (1) those of you who find these books "boring" must have no ear for language or no sense of the numinous, or your ideal fantasy is something of the "sword and sorcery" genre; (2) a whole lot of you don't seem to get that this trilogy takes place in the *way far* future ON THE MOON!!! That's what the "daymonth" and "earthlight" things are about. Re-read it if you don't believe me -- particularly the parts about the ancients "who had first fallen from the sky in fire to quicken this, a then-dead world, the moon of Oceanus, into life.." then returned whence they came, back to Oceanus (the Earth). "Oceanus hung, a swirl of blue and white, almost directly ahead of her..." Doesn't that put you in mind of that famous photograph (I think it's called "Earthrise") taken of the Earth by one of the astronauts?
