fancied stories with heroines disguised as young men after
first reading Shakespeareís As You Like It, which
lead to discovering one of my favorite operas, Straussí
Der Rosenkavalier. Iím pleased to say this exciting
rich tale of love, magic and mystery didnít disappoint.
Kardos are engaging individuals with hidden secrets, desires
and motives that are unfurled within the carefully layered
storyline. The authorís writing style is picturesque and
she makes the most of the players by including the five
senses. This is an exquisitely sophisticated tale that
radiates passion, whimsy and stark sensuality. I didnít
know what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised at the
ending and all the excellent parts that lead up to the
climax and the finale. Iím certain that readers will delve
straight into Wizardís Woman with its solid
characters and wonderfully constructed plot.
