World Fantasy and Nebula Award finalist Kate Elliott breaks new ground in a brilliantly original new fantasy set in a unique world of fabled cities, mysterious gods, and terrible dangers. From the first page readers will be swept up in the story of Mai and Captain Anji, as they become unwitting players in a conflict that began many years earlier, and which will shake the foundations of their land.For hundreds of years the Guardians have ruled the world of the Hundred, but these powerful gods no longer exert their will on the world. Only the reeves, who patrol on enormous eagles, still represent the Guardians' power. And the reeves are losing their authority; for there is a dark shadow across the land that not even the reeves can stop.A group of fanatics has risen to devour villages, towns, and cities in their drive to annihilate all who oppose them. No one knows who leads them; they seem inhumanly cruel and powerful. Mai and Anji, riding with a company of dedicated warriors and a single reeve who may hold a key to stopping the deadly advance of the devouring horde, must try, or the world will be lost to the carnage. But a young woman sworn to the Goddess may prove more important than them all . . . if they are not too late.A haunting tale of people swept up by the chaos of war, this is superlative fantasy adventure, rich in texture, filled with color and excitement, masterfully crafted by a brilliantly gifted storyteller.

3.0 Spirit Gate - Kate Elliott
I have a confession to make: as far as I can remember, Spirit Gate is the first book by Kate Elliott that I've actually ever read. Don't misunderstand me, I've picked up a bunch of her books, to the point where she almost has a shelf to herself on one of my bookcases, but the sheer heft of each one ...

Maybe 2½ stars. Fully ¾ of this book is taken up with mere introduction. We all know what's coming, but it just drags out for 300+ pages until suddenly everything happens.Then we get left at the end with very little resolution, and still no real understanding of what's going on. Well, Ms. Elliott, I...

4.0 Spirit Gate: Book One of Crossroads
This is the start of a series and as such has a lot of characters and several part of a new world and an unusual world at that.

I just could not get into this. I've been trying for a week and I'm calling it quits for now. I might try again later to see if the book improves when I'm in a different mood.
