Fast-paced page-turner. The story telling quality is very compelling. I would give it a 5 out of 5. Anne Bishop is one of those rare story tellers who draws you away and run away with you that you forget the time. You forget to eat. She draws a reader in so deeply that you can feel and hear the vibration as the demon motorcycles go by... World building is incredible. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5. At first, I imagined that it would be difficult to convince readers to believe in a world of shifting geography. I scoffed at it when I first encountered it. So it tells of the author's story telling skills that she has somehow managed, not only to pull it off, but sell the book to boot! I'd give the "suspension of disbelief" a 4.5 out of 5. Character development? Is a 5 out of 5. Anne Bishop gives us characters who lingers on a reader's mind long after the book was read. This book being the second book in a duology, is best appreciated if the first book is read first. I would give this book an overall entertainment value of 5 out of 5.
"Those who enjoy sophisticated, mature and original epic fantasy will be well rewarded by spending time in Ephemera. Strongly recommended."
