Review:

"[Francesca Lia Block's] lush, beautiful words turn modern-day Los Angeles into a fantatsical world of fairies, angels, and charms."--" ALA Booklist"Intoxicating...Heady...The darkness of these conflicts and subjects proves the strength of the magic [Block] describes: the transfiguring power of love."-- Starred Review, " Publisher's Weekly "[Block] uses language like a jeweled sword, glittering as it cuts to the heart."-- Starred Review, " Kirkus Reviews
