“Nora must find her place in a world where her academic skills, and even the English language, are suddenly useless. She is alternately aided and thwarted by the magician Aruendiel, who can perhaps be best described as an Alan Rickman character when the Harry Potter films meet Love, Actually…. By the end of the novel, readers will feel at home in the alternate universe Barker has created, and their protagonists come to seem like old friends.” —Shelf Awareness
