Overview

Tess Noncoiré, bestselling fantasy writer turned martial arts demon hunter, is back for another rollicking adventure.

Publishers Weekly

Frost's lively sequel to Hounding the Moon(2006) finds Tess Noncoiré, fantasy writer and Warrior of the Celestial Blade, literally haunted by the ghost of her dead husband, Dill, and on the run from the vengeful widow of a Windago demon. Tess doesn't need more trouble, but she gets it anyway when WindScribe, a member of her aunt MoonFeather's coven, reappears-unaged, naked and hounded by "garden gnomes with teeth"-after vanishing 28 years before. The gnomes, actually demonic Orculli trolls, are guards bent on returning WindScribe to a pandimensional prison for unspecified crimes. Meanwhile, Tess's mom has fallen in love with Darren Estevez, Damiri demon and stepfather of Tess's mysterious love interest, Donovan. Frost juggles several plot lines and occasionally drops a few, but the ever-changing mix of mundane and supernatural elements keeps the story interesting. Fans of Anne McCaffrey and Marion Zimmer Bradley are most likely to enjoy this slightly screwball fantasy adventure leavened with touches of soap opera. (Sept.)

I loved the first book in this series. The story line continues to flow and the plot thickens. I get answers in this book, but Frost keeps somethings back. This book is fun, exciting, and gives a hunger for the next book, "Faery Moon".

She is a Warrior of the Celestial Blade and bound magically to the imp Scrap. Her job is to make sure that demons don¿t enter this plane through portals and if they do, she has to send them back to their own realm. Her morning gets off to a bad start when her friend Allie the police officer calls her and tells she saw a young woman emerge from empty space and is being chased by garden gnomes with sharp teeth.-------------- As Tess Noncoire goes to fix the problems, she thinks it is unfair because just before this assignment she fought against a Wendigo who wants revenge because Tess killed her mate. She discovers the woman is WindScribe, a witch who disappeared to faery with eleven other witches thirty years ago. She committed a crime in Fairy and King Scazz of the Orculli gnomes seeks to imprison her once again. In addition to dealing with a vengeful witch wanted by the Powers That Be Tess¿s husband¿s ghost is haunting her, she has to hold Donovan at arms length because though he is not a demon, he is something else. She also has to worry about her mother when Darren, Donovan¿s demonic father marries her mother, needs a refuge for half demons and wants something that Tess owns.-------------- MOON IN THE MIRROR is a fantastic magical urban fantasy in which the forces of good battle different evil beings in a series of high noon confrontations. Tess is a strong woman who although is tempted by Donovan and the ghost of her beloved she has the will power to resist temptation especially when the beings involved may be tainted by demonic forces. The biggest mystery is what Donavan¿s foster father¿s plan is and how will it impact the human race.-------------- Harriet Klausner
