Fight a fire-breathing dragon with a wooden airplane? It’ll take a madman...

Under the Hill, Part 2

Kidnapped by the faerie queen, Ben is confronted with his own supernatural heritage, a royal family and a lover he doesn’t remember. His first instinct is to turn his back on them all and get back to Earth. Compared to this, Chris and his wacky cohorts seem almost…normal.

Back on Earth, Chris Gatrell is having trouble convincing the police that he didn’t do away with Ben and hide the body. Determined not to lose another sweetheart to the elves’ treachery, he presses his motley crew of ghost hunters to steal a Mosquito bomber…and prays the ghosts of his WWII crew will carry them through the portal to Ben’s rescue.

Meanwhile, Chris’s elf-trapped WWII love, Geoff, has a dragon and he’s not afraid to use it. If only he could be entirely sure which of the elf queens is the real enemy—the one whose army is poised to take back planet Earth for elf-kind.

In the cataclysmic battle to come, more than one lover—human and elf alike—may be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Warning: Dragons dogfighting with fighter planes, time travelers and reincarnated celestial beings are all very exciting, but have your hankies ready for a bittersweet ending.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This brisk and engrossing sequel to Bomber’s Moon is definitely not the place to start with Beecroft’s other-dimensional gay romance saga, which includes “definitive proof of time travel, flying saucers, hostile extraterrestrial life” that are actually elves. The barrage of weird begins to settle into a story line around halfway through, as RAF veteran Chris (blown into 1990s England by an elf-engineered event) heads off to rescue his old flying buddy Geoff and his new lover, Ben, from elves who are planning to invade Earth. Beecroft is fond of description, and the story would benefit from more word count devoted to character development and relationships rather than yet another lapidary articulation of the scenery. Despite that, it’s a treat for readers who like their romance with a healthy dose of adventure. Indeed, for a book billed as romance, there’s precious little; it’s mostly swashbuckle with just a bit of swish. (May)
