Touchstone by Melanie Rawn

Touchstone is a behind the scenes look at theatrical production powered not by animation but magic.   Touchstone is a theatre group struggling for success and identity. 

Ms. Rawn has done a masterful job in presenting an eclectic cast of characters.   She provides insights to their personalities and how they became the people they are.   Allusions to societal ills such as discrimination, poverty, perversion are made without being done with a heavy hand.

Blye is a perfect illustration of the "glass" ceiling facing even contemporary women.   The author does a good job drawing parallels with real life in spite of the fantasy format.

This is the first book in a trilogy, I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I recommend the book.
