CSFF: Cyndere’s Midnight

This week the Christian Science Fiction Fantasy blog tour is featuring Cyndere's Midnight by Jeffrey Overstreet. I've read his first book in the Auralia Thread series - Auralia's Colors. I was impressed by the richness of the prose, but thought the story moved along a bit slowly. Based on the reviews I've read on the blogs below and elsewhere, Cyndere's Midnight doesn't have that problem.

This tale pairs a grieving widow with a beastman - part of the savage House that killed her husband. Since Cyndere and her husband Deuneroi planned to help the beastmen, the story brings another to mind - the story of five men killed by the very people they wanted to reach, and the widows going back to continue their husbands' mission.

I also love the beautiful covers - the depth and richness and mystery.

Hi, Katie, thanks for taking part in the tour for CM. And I agree with you on the pacing. That and the multiple points of view made it hard for me to get into. Still, like a number of others we've toured, in the end I wouldn't have missed it.
