Fantasy novel. SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
''...her more recent novels - Burying the Shadow (1992), SIGN FOR THE SACRED (1993), Calenture (1994) and Stalking Tender Prey (1995) - have moved her work towards Dark Fantasy. Her writing is distinguished by a fine attention to psychological character detail, charting progression and regression through complex inner as well as outer landscapes. A fascination with sexual power, with sexual ambivalence, with redemption and transcendence, pervades her writing. Religion as Mystery and source of action is explored in SIGN FOR THE SACRED. Her re-inventions of vampires and angels lie firmly in the realms of danger and delirium. Her novels are not always comfortable reading, being challenging both stylistically and thematically, and the author must be considered to occupy a key position in the emergence during the mid-1990s of dark fantasy as a separate subgenre'' (Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
