Spellbinder - Melanie Rawn This is the first and only book I've read by Ms. Rawn, but I doubt it will be the last. The characters are well-defined, the action a nice mix between the paranormal and the mundane, and the language fluid and engaging.

While not perhaps the most innovative example of the genre, the author clearly did her research and crafted a very complete tale with no discernible plot holes or confusion. The book is a nice read, neither predictable nor too complicated to follow easily. The romantic element kept the story feeling fairly original, and the events tracked around that central theme nicely.
