National bestselling author Anne Bishop's provocative hardcover debut, set in a darkly romantic, ever-changing world. A world of shifting lands connected only by bridges, Ephemera has been kept stable by the magic of the Landscapers. In one land where night reigns and demons dwell, the half-incubus Sebastian revels in dark delights. But then in dreams she calls to him: a woman who wants only to be safe and loved-a woman he hungers for while knowing he may destroy her. But a more devastating destiny awaits Sebastian, for in the quiet gardens of the Landscapers' school, evil is stirring. The nearly forgotten Eater of the World has escaped its prison-and Sebastian's realm may be the first to fall.

It is the story, in my mind, of a unique individual trying to make a home and future for himself but trouble from others seems to slow or stop him in many areas. Sebastian learns to brave the unknown and make solid friends with those that are different than him. Loved it.

This is a very involved book, but worth the time commitment. The story doesn't move as fast as the black jewels books, but the characters are interesting and the plot is unique.

I could not finish this book. A good premise, but too much repetition of phrases and ideas. This book promises imagination, but does not deliver.
