Ice, a fairy attuned to the element of water, makes her living as a petty thief in the supernatural underground of Melbourne, a city ruled by demon gang lords and vampire mobsters. When she steals a magical mirror belonging to a local demon, she falls prey to its insidious powers and hurtles headlong into a confrontation with the city's nightmare denizens. Hayes's second volume in her urban fantasy trilogy picks up the threads of a new set of characters, intermingling them with notables from Shadowfae, the series opener. VERDICT Writing with an explicitly sexual, visceral eroticism, Hayes calls to mind the fantasy of Laurell K. Hamilton and Storm Constantine and targets a strictly adult audience.
