Paula Volsky's work is incomprable. She manages to mix politics, intrigue, horror, suspense, romance, history and fantasy together to form gripping novels. In "The Curse of the Witch-Queen," (Ms. Volsky's first book) we see the beginnings of her inimitable style: the court of Szar, the Sorcerer King, the slatkum (an alien creature), the whispering portraits. However, her voice is by no means complete by this time. "The Curse of the Witch-Queen" is "cursed" by a split plot, a "quest", expedient characters, and unsteady linguistics. Long-time devotees of Ms. Volsky's work will doubtless find great pleasure reading her first novel, with its hints of Illusion's Sentients and even The Wolf of Winter's necromancy, but those first reading Ms. Volsky's work would do better to seek out her recent novels, particularly Illusion.
