Truth in the Dark - Amy Lane Another fantastic read by Amy Lane. It's amazing to me that she can write contemporaries so well but also pull off a fantasy like this one like a total pro.

I loved this book from page one and just was delighted by the story and the prose over and over. I think my section when Naef was still on his home island was my favorite-- what a wonderful build-up of an underdog character. His sister and what she did to protect him was startling and so very dark in a Grimm's fairy tale kind of way.

Aerie-Smith's island, and the description of the people/animals, was terrific world building. I loved the story and the plot arc. But my favorite thing about this book is the language Amy employs. I highlighted passage after passage that was just sheer brilliant writing.

I bow to your gift, Ms. Lane, and try not to be too envious!
