“This is a fun, fannish romp full of sarcastic quips and supernatural action.” – Locus (for Hounding the Moon)

“P. R. Frost has a nice romp going on, and I can’t wait for Tess’s next adventure.” – Science Fiction by Henry Leon Lazarus (for Moon in the Mirror)
 
“The absurd situations and mounting chaos keep things moving and plenty of fun.” – Locus (for Moon in the Mirror)

    Daughter of Demeter Chapter 1

    I was getting tired of running. <br>
    Sure, I had ADHD and maybe running could calm my heperactivness down, but I was seriously tired. <br>
    Okay, so there's a monster chasing me too. <br>
    Earlier this afternoon, I got home from school. I'm in 5th grade, but my grades aren't the best. ADHD, remember? I grabbed a juice box and said hi to the bby sitter eho was watching my younger twin sisters. <br>
    "I'm going out for a jog," I told her. "I'll be home in about fifteen minutes." She smiled at me. <br>
    "Go right ahead, Libby," she replied before turning to my sisters. They were three and awfully shy. <br>
    One out of the house, I headed towards the park, where I like o think. For some reason, my ADHD doesn't really other me when i'm in the soft green meadow. <br>
    "A demi-god." I heard a voice like chipped ice from behind me. I tensed. We had studied a bit about Mythology in History, and the term demi-god sounded familiar. I turned and saw an ugly old lady glaring at me. Suddenly, she wasn't an old lady. She was a feather-winged old lady with claws and fangs. I yelped. <br>
    "What are you?" I backed away as I spoke. The creature hissed. <br>
    "I'm a fury, aren't I?" She asked in that brittle voice. The term once again sounded familiar. "I was hungry and I decided to stop for a demi-god snack." <br>
    "Hey, look, I barely remember the Mytholgy lesson!" I pleaded. "Stop throwing big words out here!" The lady -the fury- snarled.<br>
    "Prepare to die!" Sh screeched as she lunged at me. I shrieked and ran. <br>
    But by now, i was getting tired. I ha pulled a few tricks on the lady that had slowed her pace, but she was gaining on me. <br>
    "If anybody can help," I muttered as I whizzed past the trees. "Help me now." For a moment nothing happened. The fury screeched, gaining on me. Then the ground opened below me, and I plunged into darkness.

    The latest Moon over Portland urban fantasy is an entertaining sword and sorcery thriller

    Fantasy writer Tess Noncoire a Celestial Blade Warrior, her personal imp Scrap and their allies plugged the faery leak (see Faery Moon). However, something new is in Portland committing violent crimes against women. Tess vows to take down the evil psychopath who has crossed over but the Celestial Blade Warrior is unsure of from where as the leaks seem to be everywhere.

    At the same time Tess finds herself overwhelmed with other issues. First she feels like a babysitter responsible for a horde of half-breed demons who are attending a local convention. Second she is the backup for renowned Celtic-folk singer. Third she needs to write a book. Finally she needs time to persuade her beloved they are fated; but is it Gollum or Donovan?

    The latest Moon over Portland urban fantasy (see Moon in the Mirror) is an entertaining sword and sorcery thriller. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action as Tess and Scrap take on a malevolent dangerous chauvinist. Although the heroine at times seems to be the star of a fantasy game in which whenever she needs a new skill she obtains it seemingly instantly but also uses her new talent as a seasoned veteran rather than struggling to understand what she newly possesses. Still this is a fun entry as Tess the Celestial Blade Warrior and her sharp "sidekick" Scrap fight evil doers.
