Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Magic takes flight

Tess Noncoire, a successful fantasy writer, is in Vegas for a writers' conference. Of all its sights, the most surprising is a group of faeries kidnapped to perform in a casino. If Tess and her sidekick, Scrap, don't return these winged dancers to their home, their dimension may be erased forever.

Review:

"The third Tess Noncoiré adventure (after 2007's Moon in the Mirror) follows the fantasy author and rogue demon-hunter to Las Vegas. While appearing as the guest of a regional writers conference, Tess and her imp sidekick, Scrap, are appalled to learn that the beautiful dancers performing in the hit show Faery Moon are supernatural beings kidnapped from Faery. Local vampire crime boss Lady Lucia offers to help Tess free the faeries and get them home, which seems easy enough, but the presence of another rogue Warrior hints that there's more going on. Meanwhile, Tess's old flame Donovan Estevez shows up, raising the possibility of conflict with her new would-be lover, Gollum aka Guilford Van der Hoyden-Smythe. The dark ending is leavened by the usual insider references to filk, as well as plenty of sword swinging and romantic angst." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The author uses Las Vegas and its desert surroundings to good advantage, creating an atmosphere of affluence and decadence amid the stark beauty of ancient places." Library Journal

Synopsis:

A brand-new Tess Noncoiré novel from "an innovative and welcome new voice in urban fantasy"(#1 New York Times-bestselling author Patricia Briggs)

Tess Noncoiré, successful fantasy writer and Celestial Blade Warrior, has gone to a writers' conference in Las Vegas, taking along her mother, who is depressed over the death of her demon husband.

Taking in one of Vegas' Big Acts, Tess is amazed to see winged dancers flying about the stage, seemingly unsupported by any wires. Then she discovers the dancers are actually faeries, held captive in the casino against their will. And if Tess and her sidekick demon Scrap don't help the faeries return to their own dimension, they — and their realm — will die.
