Twins Iris and Malina have been born with a gleam-- a unique way of using magic to manipulate beauty. Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her kaleidoscope visions into glasswork, while Malina interprets moods as music. They must keep their gifts a secret, and are not allowed to share their magic with anyone. Above all, they are forbidden from falling in love. When their mother is mysteriously attacked, the sisters discover a wicked curse that haunts their family line. And the very magic that bonds them together may be destined to tear them apart forever.

Sensual and atmospheric. This book is abounding with beautiful, lush descriptions of sights, smells, tastes, feelings, and sounds that delight. The setting almost becomes a character. And the characters are fully fleshed-out people who develop over the course of the story. The magic is evocative and enchanting. In many ways, it is a feast.

I almost give it four stars. Readers who revel in this type of feast will bump that up to five. I, however, bump it down one for a complaint I rarely have: it took me forever to get through this because I needed more to happen; I was bogged down in all the descriptions and was starved for more tangible action.

Nevertheless, it's an enticing story and I'm tempted to seek out the sequel. It's well worth considering.
