"Shadowhand" Review

By her father's wish, Lady Daylily is betrothed to the Prince of Southlands. Not the prince she loves, handsome and dispossessed Lionheart, but his cousin, the awkward and foolish Prince Foxbrush. As her wedding day dawns, Daylily flees into the dangerous Wilderlands, her only desire to vanish from living memory.

But Foxbrush, determined to rescue his betrothed, pursues Daylily into a new world of magic and peril, a world where vicious Faerie beasts hold sway, a world invaded by a lethal parasite. 

A world that is hauntingly familiar.

My Review
Best tale yet.

I have always thought Lady Daylily a very intriguing character.  Now we get to see inside her head; see who she really is.  We get some more of Lionheart, but not too much because _______________. (Sorry, spoilers.)  Foxbrush is the main character, and we see him for who he really is, not for who Lionheart sees him as.  Eanrin and Imraldera also come back!  Along with ______.  (Spoilers again!)

The plot....oh the plot...there are no words to describe how utterly awesome it is.  The way everything is weaved together...wow.  Just wow.  And there is a hint of time travel in this story.
