As a visual artist, one of the qualities I particularly admire in these excellent works is the descriptive power of Latessa's writing. The author presents a vast continent of exotic peoples and creatures which are as distinctive and varied as the landscapes they inhabit. Her imaginary world comes to life in the mind of the reader in all its subtlety and particularity. The images created are vivid and moving-- compelling for readers of any age.
