Publisher Comments:

Following A Brush of Darkness, the second novel in a dark, fun, and sexy urban fantasy series—featuring a mortal heroine deeply enmeshed in a magical OtherWorld that she’s just learning to navigate.  

WAR IS HELL. AND WAR WITH HELL IS NO FUN EITHER.

     Just when her new life as a TouchStone—a mortal bound to help OtherFolk cross between Faery and human worlds—seems to be settling down, Abby Sinclair is left in charge when the Protectorate, Moira, leaves for the Faery Court. And when the Protectorate’s away...let’s just say things spiral out of control when a spell on Abby backfires and the Faery Queen declares the Doors between their worlds officially closed. The results are disastrous for both sides: OtherFolk trapped in the mortal world are beginning to fade, while Faery is on the brink of war with the daemons of Hell. Along with her brooding elven prince Talivar and sexy incubus Brystion, Abby ventures to the CrossRoads in an attempt to override the Queen’s magic. But nothing in this beautiful, dangerous realm will compare to the discoveries she’s making about her past, her destiny, and what she will sacrifice for those she loves.

Review:

"Abby Sinclair, the human TouchStone for Faery princess Moira, returns in a somewhat muddled second urban fantasy (after A Brush of Darkness) that sets a supernatural love triangle against the backdrop of a war between Faery and Hell. Abby is left to care for Moira's half-angel child with the help of Moira's outcast half-brother, Talivar, and Phineas, an obnoxious miniature unicorn. Then the half-mad Faery Queen closes the CrossRoads between worlds, leaving OtherFolk stranded on Earth to slowly fade away. Abby must face political machinations, the remnants of the Unseelie Court, and her painful family history while burdened by a tangled cast of minor characters and a tendency toward soap-opera angst, especially when she is torn between Talivar and her former lover, the incubus Brystion. Pang shines in her depiction of the lower-caste denizens of Faery and pulls her rather baroque conspiracy together with some coherence before a frustratingly abrupt and inconclusive ending.

About the Author

A marine biologist in a former life, Allison Pang turned to a life of crime to finance her wild spending habits and need to collect Faberge eggs. She also loves Hello Kitty, sparkly shoes, and gorgeous violinists. She spends her days in Northern Virginia working as a cube grunt and her nights waiting on her kids and cats, punctuated by the occasional husbandly serenade. Sometimes she even manages to write. Mostly she just makes it up as she goes.
