Image of Seraphs (Thorn St. Croix, Book 2)

This thrilling dark fantasy has elements of danger, adventure and religious fanaticism, plus sexual overtones. Hunter's impressive narrative skills vividly describe a changed world,
and she artfully weaves in social
commentary. Readers are thrust
into the action on page one and
will fare better if they start with
the first book, Bloodring. The secondary characters are incredibly
well developed. Despite minor
inconsistencies, this is a well-
written, exciting novel.

In a post-apocalyptic ice age, angels and demons wage war and a new species is born. Neomages can use the power of leftover creation energy to perform magic. Most are confined in enclaves, but Thorn St. Croix lives among humans. She has many enemies and is about to face her greatest challenge: to help a seraph imprisoned in a subterranean cell.
