Artemisia and Inanna - one a woman of science, one a woman of powerful and dark magics. Both have everything they want out of life except one thing - a child.
The Child - the result of scientific experiment is what links these two women and divides them in battle.
The Darkness is an excellently written first novel by Crystal Connor, a story that keeps you guessing with every twist and turn. The science and the mystical magic are believable, the characters stand out as 3 dimensional and I for one can't wait for the next part of the story to be published.
Crystal Connor is definately one to watch (and she writes a dog character better than Dean Koontz!)
