Holly McClure has it all: beauty, success, a great apartment in Manhattan, good friends, and a very sexy new boyfriend. And one more thing a very rare magical talent. Holly is a witch. There is magic in the big city literally. New York City has a small, and very discrete, population of witches and wizards and Holly is one of them, though she tries to keep magic out of her daily life. But trouble has come to the City, in the form of a black coven run by a murderous psychopath. And he wants Holly, for the power of her blood. The danger to Holly is extreme. Her passionate affair will be derailed by those who want to drain her for their own purposes, and her dearest friends will be put in peril of their lives. In the end it will be magic against magic, and Holly McClure will have to risk all for life and love.show more

Review quote

"Impressive....Melanie Rawn is good!" --Anne McCaffrey "I am mad (petulant, in fact!) that I can't immediately read book number two in the "Exiles" trilogy.... Melanie Rawn has established beyond doubt that she is a great writer of fantasy and "The Ruins of Ambrai" will join the "Dragon" series in my library of favorites for years to come." --"Realms of Fantasy" on "The Ruins of Ambrai""" "Rawn's talent for lush descriptions and complex characterizations provides a broad range of drama, intrigue, romance, and adventure. Her depiction of Lenfell's unique matriarchal society adds further texture to this densely woven fantasy tapestry." --"Library Journal" on" "The Ruins of Ambrai" " "Be warned-if you buy one, you will want to buy them all." -- Kliatt on "The Star Scroll"show more
