THE ANGEL STONE
Dark’s latest in the Fairwick Trilogy brings us back into the world of Fairwick College and its town, where fairies, vampires, nephilim and humans reside together. Intelligently written and visually appealing, with plenty of descriptive storytelling laying out the distinctive characters in an intricately laid plot, this story is a sheer delight.
To say that half-fey college professor Callie McFay is unhappy about the nephilim control over the magical town of Fairwick would be an understatement. Her fey friends and colleagues are stuck in the land of Faerie, the door between there and Fairwick College having been locked by the nephilim. When Callie goes in search of the angel stone, which holds power over the nephilim, she meets the incubus she once loved in his original, human form. With his help and the power of the stone, she hopes to save her friends and restore Fairwick College to its original state. (BALLANTINE, Sept., 320 pp., $15.00)
