A battle may have been won, but the war looms and the odds of preventing the upcoming preternatural invasion are not good. The action in Gilman’s riveting follow-up to the excellent Heart of Briar picks up after all-too-human Jan rescued her lover Tyler from the Elves, with help from some supernatural friends. Once again Gilman builds a rich world filled with complex characters whose motivations are varied and not easily defined.

Although Jan, with the help of dangerous kelpie Martin, managed to bring Tyler back from the Elf home world, Tyler remains damaged mentally and emotionally. However the bigger concern is that the Elves promised not to invade Earth in search of their runaway queen for 10 weeks, 10 days and 10 hours, but the clock is ticking. Jan, lupin leader AJ and Martin have been hunting for the missing Elf Queen with no success. With time running out, they are forced to launch a desperate bid that may or may not end in disaster.
