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. (ROC, May, 368 pp., $14.00)
