One of those books rates as one of my favorites, too--By Darkness Hid, by Jill Williamson. I read this book several years ago, one day while staying home from a slight sickness. I read all day long, it was so good, but started to wonder why it was taking so long to finish. Then, I figured out it was 500 pages long. But, that did not stop me from reading the next two books, one of which was considerably longer, in the next week. I was caught up in the adventure and the romance of the story. I could hardly wait and never ceased imagining scenarios in which Vrell Sparrow revealed her identity and disguised gender to Achan, our hansom hero.
But enough about that. I shall now introduce the 7 novels featured in Turning Point.
By Darkness Hid
