Random book notes: Time of the Dark, Barbara Hambly

I'm not sure why I haven't read this book before. It was published right in the middle of my 'read all fiction in the library and local bookshop' phase, and, being in the swords and sorcery genre by a reasonably successful author, is the kind of thing that I would have expect to have read. But for some reason I haven't: perhaps no volumes of this book penetrated as far as North Devon in the 1980s. Or possibly the copy that was in our library had the same cover as the one I've just read, which would be enough to put anyone off. It's not my all time worst fantasy cover of all the books I own, but it's pretty dire. Anyway...
