Overview

Soccer mom and demon fighter Barbara Everette is back in an intricately interwoven monster noir thriller, the sequel to bestselling Princess of Wands.

Barbara Everette has a problem. It seems Janea, Barbara’s assistant and the Foundation for Love and Universal Faith’s best operative, has been thrown into a coma by some very nasty magic she’s stirred up. Barbara must track down the perpetrators and break the spell or Janea’s soul will be forever lost on the astral plane. Oh, and if she can’t break the spell, zombies will destroy all mankind.

Meanwhile, Janea, a high-dollar call girl, stripper and High Priestess of Freya when she isn’t fighting demons, must contend with a spiritual journey of her own. Where to locate one’s true inner essence? At a science fiction convention, of course. But when rescuers pursue Janea into her vision of a geeky alternate reality, we find this is one science fiction convention where the Guest of Honor could turn out to be Death Himself.

This book grabs the reader and does not let go through the entire course of the book. I have the kindle book the signed edition three copies and two rwgular hard back ediitions. I also have the audio edition. YES I am nuts for this book. John Ringo does a great job of chacter devlopment. The chacters are allowed to breath and grow in the face of a rapidly moving plot. I truly loved the two side by side storey lines that merge to one in one part of this book. If this book was brought to the big screen it would be a visual stunner. The auduo book is very nicely done. The orator brings a depth to the presentation that is very enjoyable and worth while. One reviewer critizied the author for preaching. If one knows where he stands how can a few words hurt you. Thin skinned ninny.
