Of all the stories I've read of the fairy-elf-fantasy genre, this author beats everyone except for maybe Lord Dunsany.
She follows the rather thin standard story line that this genre is always about, use of magic to right wrongs, destroy the bad guys, kill the trolls, etc, but her way is far more complex and elegant and holds your attention. Everything works and you stay entertained.
Additionally, she brings science in: our heroine is the 6 billion dollar woman, if you remember that TV series. If you don't, never mind.
I will automatically buy every audiobook this author puts out, which is the highest thing I can say about it. I have about 300 audible audiobooks, and there are only a very few that I will purchase like that.

This is sort of a spoiler, but not a serious enough one that you might not want to read it. I hate it when an author kills off one of my favorite characters in hopes of getting me to read the next book, especially when I know it will work. There is a ton of action packed into this book, and it is kind of a blood bath, now that I'm thinking about it, but the story got more interesting and the plot took an unexpectedly delightful turn at the end. Though it's total brain candy without a single redeeming literary virtue, I really enjoy this series and was sad to find out that the next one isn't out yet.
