In this second installment of Tanya Huff's Keeper's Chronicles, the pages are ripe with sexual innuendo, and the fast-paced humor will surely have you laughing out loud. I really enjoyed the exploits of poor Samuel, the lost angel who is completely confused by his unexpected male equipment. (Angels are not supposed to have gender.) His lines are without doubt the best in the book. His counterpart, the demon Byleth, is also extremely funny, as she tries to deal with well-intentioned strangers being genuinely nice to her.
Readers familiar with Huff's Summon the Keeper will find this novel a worthy successor and will undoubtedly enjoy the developments between Claire and her handsome young Bystander, Dean. Claire is a Keeper, someone who "maintains the structural integrity of the barrier between the world as most people know it and the metaphysical energy all around it." It's not an easy job -- with an angel and a demon to mess things up. (Corrina Allen)
