The author's best weird novel. ''Chambers' last important work of supernatural fiction: an adventure novel of Oriental menace whose roots are clearly in 'The Maker of Moons''' (Bleiler, Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, p. 744).

''an American girl who has learned magic in the Mysterious East escapes and comes home but is broke and alone. In one episode she tries to earn some money by putting on a stage show in New York of genuine supernatural magic - but the audience doesn't go for it. Later scenes that show nefarious sorcerers animating mandrakes are very nicely handled'' (Robert Eldridge).
