''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. Angel legends provide resonance for social order in both BURYING THE SHADOW and Stalking Tender Prey, with imagery and texture echoing the Old Testament, the Apocrypha and John Milton, and forming the core of a complicated narrative web. 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. A provocative and prolific writer, she 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).
