Armed forces veteran and eight-time New York Times bestselling author John Ringo delivers the sequel to contemporary urban fantasy thriller Princess of Wands. Demonic, possessed Stepford wives versus a soccer mom demon slayer – plus, a zombie fight at an SF convention.
Soccer mom and demon fighter 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 stripper and High Priestess of Freya when she isn’t fighting demons, must contend with a spiritual journey of her own. It’s a journey into Janea’s acceptance of herself in all her dimensions (and what dimensions they are!). 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.
Finally, the Christian soccer mom and the Norse priestess stripper face their greatest challenge ever when an ancient Old One rears Her ugly face, and the Mother of Darkness walks among us. Since this is one Mother who is quite immune to any conventional power, including nuclear weapons, it seems humanity’s only hope is God. The question being: Is God willing to save humanity?

I have read most, but not all of Mr. Ringo's book. And this one of the best stories, he has ever writen.
John Ringo is one of my all time favorite authors but I don’t understand the point of this series. It’s like all a sudden he wants to reach out to the religious wacko fringe? Just don’t get it. Sorry, Mr. Ringo.
Princess of Wands got me started with the series. But Queen of Wands has me wanting more. Looking for what trouble can come up. Good work Keep it up
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.
