Before she left, Kevla placed her hands on the stones and heated them again

Before she left, Kevla placed her hands on the stones and heated them again pleasant as hers had been. Kevla felt marvelous after several sessions of sitting in the hot steam, and then plunging into the refreshing coldness of the snowbanks. She had not realized how much tension she had been carrying in her body until she had been able to release it with the blessing of the vision, which comforted even as it confused and intrigued her, and the hamantu.

All characters in this book have no existence outside the imagination of the author and have no relation whatsoever to anyone bearing the same name or names. They are not even distantly inspired by any individual known or unknown to the author, and all incidents are pure invention.

i have not read book three yet.
I really like this story line however
This has been an enjoyable series, it's too bad that the last books will be e-books only.
this is a good series. just wish that there were more in paperback instead of needing an e-reader for the rest of the series.

The saga of the Final Dance continues with In Stone's Clasp.

Kevla's journey takes her far into the North to find the second dancer needed to keep the Shadow from destroying their world. She has dreamed of the Stone Dancer and has followed her dreams to find him. Along the way she finds others who can help her on the quest for the dancer.

When Jareth is finally found, he is nothing like what Kevla expected. Having lost his powers to bring Spring to the land and having lost his family to the endless winter have made him a bitter, angry man. He is far from ready to accept his duty to fight the Shadow. The hatred he feels for what has happened leads the small band of stragglers on a journey to find a legendary beauty, the Ice Maiden. Will he be able to conquer his pain to accept his destiny?

Christie Golden shows yet again why she is a gifted author of the fantasy genre. Her strong characters and brilliantly created worlds are sure to grab readers from the first page. The lands from which the players come are so vivid and full of life that one can envision the landscapes and their people. Add a few mythical beings and a mystical bend with the premise of the Dance, and readers can't go wrong.

Kevla is an incredibly strong woman, who has seen much in her young life, all of which prepares her for the role she now plays. She has her weaknesses and her strengths, making her all the more believable for the reality of her person. Jareth is emotionally wounded, never having been able to recover from the deaths of his family and the loss of the one thing he considered his strongest gift. His agony over what happened and his desire to fix it makes readers feel his pain with him, and empathize with his plight. Watching the characters grow is one of the best things about this series. They go through so much in their lives that their transformation into the mystical dancers is a sight to behold.

Of course, adventure is not lacking, as readers follow Kevla and company to Jareth, then on to the Ice Maiden, and where they go after that will leave one breathless with anticipation of what is yet to come. The enemies are powerful and readers long to know how they will be defeated, as much as they want to know what drives these villains to be who they are. This series is as much about the journey as it is the characters. This reviewer is a fan and doesn't know how she'll be able to wait for book 3, Under Sea's Shadow, to arrive in 2006.

Let's start things off for this review. First off, if you haven't yet read On Fire's Wing by Christie Golden you need to read that book first to understand what is going on in this book. On Fire's Wing is a great book too so don't worry.

Now on to In Stone's Clasp. I need to start by saying that, if you think this is a 'chick' book or a romance novel you are wrong. This is a FANTASTIC fantasy novel. What I said in my review of On Fire's Wing still applies to this book. The world building and character developmet are second to none. It is quite obvious that Ms. Golden has put considerable effort into the world development on this series. It's refreshing to see what she can do.

The character development is also top notch. Kevla appears in the first book, On Fire's Wing, and is on of the main characters in this book as well. Her development as a character is still progressing, in fact she makes some monumental choices to further that in this book. Another main character is introduced to us in that of Jareth. Jareth is the Stone Dancer, and needs to make some huge choices and develop as a person. In the two books in this series I have rarely come across characters this 'real'. They make choices that real people would make, they face real fears and uncertainties. They are not the all powerful, hack and slash everything everything in their path type of characters.

Now on to the story. The story itself has two parts. The most imediate is that of Jareth's struggle to realize he is the Stone Dancer and all that entails. The second part of the story is a carry over from the first book in tha of the Emperor wanting to stop the Dancers. I don't want to give away any spoilers here, but sufice to say that Jareth's journey is well worth the read and the more I read about the Emperor the more I hate him. I would be willing to bet in the two books in this series we have probably read about 30-40 pages about the Emperor and already I hate that man. Pretty strong emotion for so few pages, I hope that gets across just how good these characters are.

Saddly, I have a feeling this book will be overlooked by most, either because they think it's a 'chick' book or simply because they don't know about it. If you are a fan of the fantasy genre and have not read these two books you need to do yourself a favor and read them. They are fantastic reads and I am eagerly awaiting book three, which will probably be out in September 2006. I can't recommend this book enough.
