In the tales of World Fantasy, by Award-winning author Patricia McKillip, nothing is ever as it seems. A mirror is never just a mirror, a forest is never just a forest. Here, it is a place where a witch can hide in her house of bones and a prince can bargain with his heart ... where good and evil entwine and wear each others' faces ... and where a bird with feathers of fire can quench the fiercest longing.

Mckillip writes in a really dreamy way that is sometimes hard for me to follow. However, her books are always very good. I didn't like this one as much as her Riddlemaster trilogy, but it was interesting and unique. Probably won't be one I return to in the future to reread though.
