Rosa followed Jamie from the office and down the worn stone steps to the street. A nineteenth-century structure which had been boarded up for forty years, it was the current object of Vasily’s unstoppable desire to transform every old building in St Petersburg into luxury apartments.

Rosa moved back into the shadow of the fence and closed her eyes a second. Now she understood what poison infected the heart of the Chenchikov family. They were being haunted by Elizavetta’s dead husband. As the sun rose full on the first day of the journey, the clouds on the horizon burned off and the sky dazzled Daniel’s eyes. It was silver-blue at first glance, but he had the sense that if he looked deep-behind dense layers of air and light-there lurked swells of green and aches of violet

Rosa has discovered an ancient golden bear in the walls of an old bathhouse her uncle is fixing into condos. When she feels a spark from the bear she thinks it is only her weak magic flicking due the ancient artifact. She needs to know more about the mysterious artifact and so Rosa calls in an old friend to discover more. Little does Rosa know that it will be the start of an adventure through the forgotten lore of Russia and a land filled with hidden dangers.

This was a wonderful, stand alone novel. It was filled with a love, adventure, death and trials. I found the writing to be fluid and enjoyable but occasionally the story didn't move fast enough for me. Even with a few dull spots, the adventure more then made up for it. I liked Rosa and and ended up enjoying both the timid Daniel and icicle-like Em. I wish the villains could have been a little more developed, there was little character build up of them and so I didn't find them as scary as they probably are portrayed. I enjoyed the weaving of Russian mythology and that it didn't matter I didn't know the ins and outs of the myth to enjoy the novel. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a blend of modern fairy tales and ancient evils.

This novel is beautifully written and interesting. It is very hard to find really good fantasy novels that blend 'reality' or the real world with alternative versions of reality. I love Charles De Lint and Kim Wilkins writes in a similar style. Reading this book is like finding a really cool vintage jacket, or an original musician or artist. I like all of her books - they are romantic and ironic and dark and light, but most importantly, they are spiritual and really explore culture, values and belief systems.
