Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.

Library Journal Review

The world of Ephemera exists in the form of many magical landscapes, guarded over by Landscapers, women who shape these worlds into their myriad forms, and Bridges, men who act as transition points. When an ancient evil known only as the Eater of the World finds a way to escape its long imprisonment and begins its destructive onslaught within the many landscapes, only a few of Ephemera's residents still remember this creature's existence or know how to fight it. At the center of the battle is an incubus, a half human-half demon named Sebastian, whose powers over the land-and over himself-have yet to be unlocked. The author of the "Black Jewels" paperback series (Daughter of the Blood; Heir to the Shadows) makes her hardcover debut with a dark romantic fantasy series in which reality is shaped by desire and each person finds the world they deserve. Bishop's talents lie both in her ability to craft a story filled with intriguing characters and in her flair for smoldering sensuality that recommends her to fans of Tanith Lee, Storm Constantine, and Anne Rice. Highly recommended. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
