Living among humans in a post- apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix is a source of both fear and fascination for the people of Mineral City--and now she faces her ultimate test.
Deep under the snow-covered mountains beyond the village, an imprisoned fallen seraph desperately needs her help. There, hidden in the hellhole, the armies of Darkness assemble to ensure this subterranean rescue will be Thorn's final descent...
"A new, strongly unique voice in the dark fantasy genre."
"[A] darkly alluring vision of a future in which the armies of good and evil wage their eternal struggle in the world of flesh and blood."
The apocalypse has come and gone, leaving a world changed by the arrival of demons and seraphs and the appearance of neo-mages, born from humans but possessed of magical gifts. Thorn St. Croix attempts to live peacefully in the Appalachian community of Mineral City, among people who both respect and fear her. But a greater threat lies beneath the mountains, where a captured seraph needs deliverance from the minions of hell. Continuing the story begun in Blood-ring, Hunter expands on her darkly alluring vision of a future in which the armies of good and evil wage their eternal struggle in the world of flesh and blood. Strong characters and a compelling story make this a good selection for most libraries. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
