Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tess Noncoiré, bestselling fantasy writer turned martial arts demon hunter, is back for another rollicking adventure. Trouble has followed Tess to her own doorstep, and now she and her sidekick Scrap must protect her mother from a demon shes fallen in love with while at the same time fighting off an invasion led by the king of the Trolls—who bears far too close a resemblance to a garden gnome...

Review:

"'Frost's lively sequel to Hounding the Moon (2006) finds Tess Noncoir, fantasy writer and Warrior of the Celestial Blade, literally haunted by the ghost of her dead husband, Dill, and on the run from the vengeful widow of a Windago demon. Tess doesn't need more trouble, but she gets it anyway when WindScribe, a member of her aunt MoonFeather's coven, reappears — unaged, naked and hounded by 'garden gnomes with teeth' — after vanishing 28 years before. The gnomes, actually demonic Orculli trolls, are guards bent on returning WindScribe to a pandimensional prison for unspecified crimes. Meanwhile, Tess's mom has fallen in love with Darren Estevez, Damiri demon and stepfather of Tess's mysterious love interest, Donovan. Frost juggles several plot lines and occasionally drops a few, but the ever-changing mix of mundane and supernatural elements keeps the story interesting. Fans of Anne McCaffrey and Marion Zimmer Bradley are most likely to enjoy this slightly screwball fantasy adventure leavened with touches of soap opera. (Sept.)'
