About the Author

Violette Malan lives in a nineteenth-century limestone farmhouse in southeastern Ontario with her husband. Born in Canada, Violette's cultural background is half Spanish and half Polish, which makes it interesting at meal times. She has worked as a teacher of creative writing, English as a second language, Spanish, beginner's French, and choreography for strippers. On occasion she's been an administrative assistant and a carpenter's helper. Her most unusual job was translating letters between lovers, one of whom spoke only English, the other only Spanish. She can be found at violettemalan.com.

Reviews

In Malan's Narnia-spiced fantasy debut, which also contains dashes of de Lint, Rowling and Tolkien, Canadian Max Ravenhill thinks he's just a young professor of history with a crush on Cassandra Kennaby, a pretty martial arts expert, but he's really Dawntreader, a Faerie Prince Guardian, who lost a war and was exiled to the Shadowland of Earth. And Cassandra is actually his soul mate, Truthsheart, a Rider charged to protect him from the Hounds of the Hunt during the time of Banishment. Cassandra is also trying to keep him far from his evil brother, Dreamer of Time (aka the Basilisk Prince), who thinks Max knows the location of powerful Talismans. The revelation of the identity of the High Prince, whom the Lands of the People have been awaiting, provides the best surprise in a book that suffers from overly complicated world building, fragmentary plotting and lead characters who never really come alive until the end.

Banished to the Shadowlands (the human world) for being on the wrong side of a civil war, Max Ravenhill forgets his true nature until his ancient enemy, the Basilisk Prince, plans an attack on him in the land of his exile. Warden of the Faerie folk, Cassandra Kennaby discovers Max and helps him remember his true self, determining that his only hope of survival is to return to the world of the Faerie, even though his banishment has not yet ended. Malan's fantasy debut straddles two worlds, each detailed in vibrant colors and images. Believable characters and graceful storytelling make this a good addition to most fantasy collections.
