Karin Kallmaker has released (by my count) four books with Bella since Seeds of Fire, while Laura Adams, her fantasy alter ego, sleeps. Wake up, Laura! I'm ready for the conclusion to the Tunnel of Light trilogy! Note to Bella Books: for heaven's sake, stop insisting that Ms. Kallmaker release at least one romance per year and let Laura Adams finish her Tunnel of Light series. Her readers - okay, I - am growing impatient and weary. You cannot leave this cliffhanger hanging on its cliff for three solid years. It ain't right and it ain't fair.

THEY FOUND EACH OTHER in their dreams. Autumn Bradley used the magic in her hands to save Ursula Columbine from the darkness that hunts for her.

It's almost always true that second books or trilogies are never as good as the first or third, but Laura Adams has broken that rule - along with a bunch of others in writing this "lesbian" fantasy story. Where are the weakly-developed characters, the vanilla plots, the good and true goddess loving women who overcome everything by the power of.

Autumn Bradley used the magic in her hands to save Ursula Columbine from the darkness that hunts for her. But the ordeal of her rescue has left Ursula's mind blank and her powers dimmed. Autumn only knows that it is up to her to hide the defenseless Ursula.

Darkness has spilled into Kelly Dove's life. She will use all her strength, no matter the cost to anyone, for what her dreams seem to promise: Ursula hers again.

Taylor St. Claire risked faith and spirit to save Ursula but failed. No longer cleric, no longer priestess, Taylor's bitterness threatens to consume her completely. From the ancient music that haunts them all comes a clue in the search for Ursula, and Kelly seems only too eager to help. But the face of Ursula's captor is not the woman Taylor expects.

The second volume of the Tunnel of Light trilogy continues the explosive journey of passion, heartbreak and triumph.

Early Waffle
A strong warning to would-be readers: begin with the first book
of the sequence: Sleight of Hand.
This wonderful book continues the story of a dozen women,
who are introduced as we go along, and prove to be pivotal
along the way. Two of the most identifiable characters are
the richly portrayed Ursula, and the mischievous and lusty
Hilea, who are respectively reincarnations of St Ursula, and
Abbess Hildegard of Bingen. [If you like Hildegard, this is
probably a trilogy you shouldn't miss.]
The idea of a set of present-day individuals re-treading paths
they have tread in the past is not new. However, Karin
Kallmaker raises the device to attain new heights of poetic
power. The constant theme of the story is the tension between
the conflicting desires of the women, and their transforming
love for each other, and the focus of their existence, Ursula,
which is sometimes a battle, but at othertimes in blissful alignment.
The mythic tone of the narrative comes from the fact that the
women remember their numerous previous encounters only
imperfectly. They sometimes seek someone or something they
only know vaguely, from dreams. So their discovery of each
other is alway new, and ever more poignant. And sometimes they
proceed on a path despite painful intuitions about its futility.
In places, though, the author is juggling up to three
time layers at once, with the action in each affecting the
outcomes in the others, and we lose sight of the cause-and-
effect factor, the motivation, the triggers. Should Kelly
pull, or push? Why? Why should A shoot at B? (Was I too
sleepy when I read that page? ;) In once sense, their
motivations leak between the layers. On the other hand, some
of them are more aware of the other layers than others, making
it nearly impossible for the reader to make sense of the action
except that it was horribly and tragically necessary.
In spite of its minor weaknesses, I can honestly say I enjoyed
the two books very much, and I pulled out my Canticles of
Ecstasy (since I do not have 11,000 virgins) and wallowed in the
wonderful feeling of exaltation both the book and the music
Of Hildegard Von Bingen evoke.
There is a scene in book one, when the women are together, that
sets a mood of great innocent delight. It is like the kiss of
an angel, and I keep reading in the hope that such bliss will
be found again, perhaps in the final book of the trilogy!

It has become apparent to me that Karin Kallmaker is possibly the greatest American writer alive today. Put aside the ever-present need to slap a sexual orientation qualifier in there -- it is unnecessary and limiting. Kallmaker has moved into a starfield inhabited by the great tale tellers.
For example, throughout this story Kallmaker is using phrasing structures reminiscent of Gertrude Stein. A descriptive phrase is repeated several times in a paragraph to emphasize a message, while at the same time Kallmaker twists the phrase to a new meaning with each placement. Kallmaker is not stealing Stein's technique, for it is definitely altered, morphed into Kallmaker's own skillful means of bringing revelation to the reader. In another example of great craft, Kallamker constructs a flow of unusual adjectives and rich but economical description. She uses sentences like brushstrokes in a Japanese waterpainting, rendering suggestion steadily until she leaves in one's brain snapshot-like scenes dripping with medieval history and emotional nuance. This is brilliant use of language to tell a tale. The woman is creating stuff that is stunningly above what anyone else is producing right now. Anyone on the Lambda Literay Award Panel paying attention?...P>In this book, a middle story, Kallmaker has extended her scope and her technique to a new level. A skilled craftswoman and bard has evolved into an artist. She is doing more in this book than telling a story about friends, power and magic; she is holding up a mirror and reflecting back to us ourselves. She is playing a harp so sweetly and compellingly, that we are charmed into listening as she tells us how ugly we can be.
This complex, multi-leveled plot deftly succeeds in raising the curtain on the unappealing human acts we all engage in and hide: the non-stop jockeying for advantage, the subtle pressing of our own self-serving agendas on others, the wronging of friends while we lie to ourselves and anyone who will listen that we are only serving the common good. This is a relentless and graceful study of the casual worst of the human soul.
For me, there were parts of this story that were hard to face, for interlaced in the storyline, I recognized glimpses of my own darkness, my own treachery and glib shabbiness, my own fear of what may come. And yet I was fascinated. During the course of the past few days, everywhere I went, I had the book tucked in a coat pocket or under my arm. I was slipping it out and reading whenever I had to stop and wait for anything for more than a minute during the course of my day. This is a gem of a read, a gift to all voracious readers from a splendidly gifted imagination.
Perhaps this book is also the dark before the glorious light -- created for contrast against the bright promise of what book three, The Forge of Virgins, might be in this intriguing trilogy. Treat yourself to an encounter with masterful writing: read this series.

I thoroughly enjoyed Seeds of Fire, just as I enjoyed the first book in this trilogy, Sleight of Hand, but where, oh where, is the third book, Forge of Virgins? Karin Kallmaker has released (by my count) four books with Bella since Seeds of Fire, while Laura Adams, her fantasy alter ego, sleeps. Wake up, Laura! I'm ready for the conclusion to the Tunnel of Light trilogy!

Note to Bella Books: for heaven's sake, stop insisting that Ms. Kallmaker release at least one romance per year and let Laura Adams finish her Tunnel of Light series. Her readers -- okay, I -- am growing impatient and weary. You cannot leave this cliffhanger hanging on its cliff for three solid years. It ain't right and it ain't fair.
