"Elizabeth Haydon gives us strong, compelling characters in a world both mysterious and familiar. Drawn through wonders of the fantastic and of the human soul, we, the readers, are always moving forward, never sure of where the plot, with its surprising twists and turns, is taking us. But we are always interested in finding out." —J. Gregory Keyes

"A powerful novel.... Adventurous, magical, and with characters who are original am amazed by the growing number of strong new voices that are appearing these days in fantasy, hitherto mostly male. Elizabeth Haydon is sure to change that." —Piers Anthony

Elizabeth Haydon is a major new force in fantasy. Equipped with a quick wit, Haydon has a sharp ear for dialogue, panache with characters, and that essential ability to transport her readers into her own fantastical world — a world so real you can hear the sweet music of Rhapsody's aubade and smell the smoldering forges deep within the Cauldron.

Rhapsody is a woman, a Singer of some talent, who is swept up into events of world-shattering import. On the run from an old romantic interest who won't take no for an answer, Rhapsody literally bumps into a couple of shady characters: half-breeds who come to her rescue in the nick of time. Only the rescue turns into an abduction, and Rhapsody soon finds herself dragged along on an epic voyage, one that spans centuries and ranges across a wonder-filled fantasy world.

"Prepare to lose a weekend. Elizabeth Haydon's Rhapsody is filled with wit, adventure, and delightful characters. Pick up this book at your own risk—of neglecting your family, friends, and chores while under the enchanted spell of Rhapsody." —Kathi Kamen Goldmark, co-author of The Great Rock 'n' Roll Joke Book and Mid-Life Confidential
