RT Rating

An enjoyable novel marked by an interesting but somewhat stereo- typical world and a sympathetic and intelligent first-person narrator, this is a tale of magic and secrets in a world gone mad.

A hundred and five years after the apocalypse -- which, surprisingly enough, didn't herald the end
of the world -- the planet has been plunged into a new ice age; the human population has been nearly annihilated and is now ruled by rigid theocrats; and seraphs and demons fight a
never-ending battle.

Thorn St. Croix is no ordinary human: She's a neomage, one of
the few people who can manipulate creation magic to her own purposes and the only unlicensed mage living outside the Enclaves. When she decides to help a dangerously attractive policeman find her ex-husband, she risks everything. (Roc, Nov., 352
