Answers to major questions are finally revealed in this taut and exciting new chapter in Kenyon's amazing Dark-Hunter world. Her gift for character and plot arcs is in full view as pieces of the enigmatic Ash's past are exposed. It doesn't get any better than this!

Former Sumerian god Sin has waited for centuries to exact revenge from the goddess Artemis for her betrayal and theft of his powers. When Sin steals an ancient artifact, Artemis fears he's stalking her, so she sends trusted servant Katra to kill him. But having been burned by Artemis before, Katra decides to find out what Sin is really up to first.

Sin has little time to waste on Artemis, because he's learned that an ancient race of evil demons is plotting to destroy the world. Only a Sumerian god can stop them, and Sin's short on power. (ST. MARTIN'S, Aug., 352 pp., $19.95)
