    A reviewer

    The whole series is good, but this is easily the best! I liked the new character Leah. I loved the way her and Tony acted together. They talked and argued like real people. I like that Henry and the studio workers were in the mix. I liked the Tony and Lee encounters/situations. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. It left me wanting more. Would recommend to anybody with an open mind.

    Fantastic urban fantsy

    It has been almost two months since Tony Foster fought any supernatural entities so he enjoys the respite especially with his promotion to the Trainee Assistant Director on the set of Darkest Night, a TV show starring a vampire detective. Tony finds life ironic that he works on a vampire show when his lover, best friend, and father figure Henry Fitzroy (baseborn son of King Henry VIII) is a real vampire.--------- Tony¿s hiatus from the supernatural ends when he learns from stunt woman Leah Barrett who doubles as a Demongate keeping her demon out of our world that the Demon Convergence has begun. It is a time when energies are moving is such a way that the barriers between earth and the Hells are penetrable. Leah is 3500 years old and because her demon master miscast a spell she has been protected and he unable to breach the ¿walls¿. If he gains access as it seems likely he will, the demon master will dominate the world of humanity. His minions are coming for Leah and Tony, who still remains a tyro when it comes to using his wizard powers. With the help of friends like Henry, Tony knows he will stand brave and strong trying to stop the demon horde.--------------- The hero has changed from a street hustler and prostitute to a courageous person willing to die to keep his friends and his world safe. This superb urban fantasy is at times funny, but mostly dramatic as there is plenty of action especially as Tony learns how to use his skills as he wars with demon assassins sent to kill Leah, considered by her kind as a traitor. Tanya Huff writes a spellbinding fascinating tale that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and Jim Butcher will enjoy.------------ Harriet Klausner

    I have read the Blood Series, and at this point, don't even reme

    I have read the Blood Series, and at this point, don't even remember how I found the Smoke series. I think I was excited to see there were more stories about Henry Fitzroy. I quickly learned that Henry was not the main character, and even better, Tony is! This series wonderful. Easily one of my favorites, and one of the few I insist on keeping in paper form after clearing out my book shelves. I feel for Tony as he struggles, cheer him on, feel his heartache poignantly, and laugh out loud even in public. I've reread them several times, and was excited to find the short story "See Me" today, which follows up two years after then end of "Smoke and Ashes". My only complaint? No more adventures on which to follow Tony and the cast and crew of Darkest Night.
