Library Journal Review: When Rayna Powell seeks to avoid running into a woman standing in the middle of the road on a rainy night, the ensuing crash hurtles her into another world, where she crosses a barren, lightning-filled plain to emerge in a land that hails her as a god returned. Rayna reluctantly gets drawn into an ancient conflict between the folk of West Taren and their eastern kin. Confronting inhuman magicians known as Red Robes and their ruthless king, Rayna and her newfound allies uncover a startling secret about the world's origin. Baker's first novel combines a fantasy-type world with quasi-scientific underpinnings to create a sf/fantasy blend suitable for large libraries. http://www.libraryjournal.com/article/CA6547829.html Copyright � Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
