I was encouraged by Boneshaker to try other works by Cherie Priest (she's quite good). I found out I have a .PDF of this book, but TJ from Book Love Affair pointed out the set to me on what has become one of the most addicting websites ever: BookCloseouts.com. I used some of the rest of my holiday money to get this and the other two. Four and Twenty Blackbirds is a Southern Gothic tale of a girl searching into her family's Civil War past. There are mythological and horror elements enough to recommend this book to me that I couldn't go without it. That, and I really hate reading .PDFs on my computer screen.

Let me know what you think! I'm pretty lucky to have gotten the last four of these--Genre Reviews is a great community on LiveJournal with great book reviews and compelling discussions. I'd started to respond to one particular entry before realizing there was a contest involved. You can imagine my surprise after I realized, not only had I entered, but I'd won! The prize was a $20 gift card to a bookseller of my choice. I went with Amazon.com. Hopefully the ladies over there will be proud of my choices. :)
