4.0 out of 5 stars Plenty in this Cup Jan. 23 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"The Cup of Morning Shadows" continues the story set up in "The Sword of Maiden's Tears." At the end of "Tears," Ruth Marlowe, student librarian and the soulmate of Elf Rohannon Melior, has sent Melior back to his own realm alone. "Shadows" picks up her story some time later, when Ruth has graduated and gotten a job in an upstate New York library. This particular library has only one claim to fame; every so often, a member of the staff disappears from the face of the Earth.
And that's what happens to Ruth, too, when she goes to answer an alarm on a holiday. She and her boss, Nicholas Brightlaw, end up being transported to Melior's realm, Chandrakar -- but Melior didn't call them, and he knows nothing about them being there. Which means both Ruth and Nic are in deadly peril from the start in a strange land; the only advantage they have is that, perhaps due to the translation, they understand and can speak the local language.
Ruth meets up with Fox, formerly known as Philip LeStrange -- he, too, had been transported unwittingly to Chandrakar a few years earlier than Ruth from the same library. Fox is embittered, as humans are treated lower than dirt by most.
Then, along the way, Ruth meets up with Jauressande, an Elf woman who's related to Melior. But Jauressande can barely stand the sight of Ruth (she views Ruth's love for Melior as an abomination) and absolutely hates Fox, as Fox has raised the humans in the countryside to rebel against their Elven overlords.
The Cup of Morning Shadows is the object Jauressande must have at the Elven conclave, but it's been stolen, and she's in trouble.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked This One Better Than The First One Dec 11 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book continues the story of Ruth Marlowe and Rohannan Melior begun in "The Sword of Maiden's Tears", and expands it nicely. Ruth finds a portal into Melior's world and enters it, searching for the missing part of her soul which is magically bound into the Sword of Maiden's Tears, and also, the love of her life, Melior.
This time the setting is in Melior's world, and we learn that all is not sweetness and light there. New characters are introduced and are better developed than those in the first book. Familiar characters from the first book are expanded. The whole setting seems to have been better thought out, or else I just found it more interesting than the rather claustrophobic Columbia University setting in the first book.
A warning though: if you buy this book, search out and buy the third in the series, "The Cloak of Night and Daggers", if you want to know what happens, because this book has a cliffhanger ending

I really, really loved this book. I've read the first and third books as well, and love how she really describes everything. You really get to love/hate certain characters, unlike in some other books. A must-buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book to Read and Reread June 10 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved it. I agree that it definitely needs more books to "finish" all the stories that are told in it. A little depressing at times, especially the elves-wouldn't you just love to slap them-but Ruth more than makes up for it.
