Booklist Review

Theala, a beautiful, young woman disguised as an ugly hag, searches for the one demon that escaped being sucked back to hell during this decade's Battle Day. She encounters Smithe MacGinsie, a ne'er-do-well whose boasting about the encounter is overheard by the demon, who then forces Smithe to lead him to Theala. It turns out that the demon, Bytor, is Theala's brother, who, after being snatched to hell about 20 years earlier, grew up thinking he was a demon. Theala, Bytor, and Smithe embark on a quest to find the siblings' grandfather, a powerful magician. Stalked by the dread, spectral Implementors, they face and defeat deadly obstacle after deadly obstacle. The pace is fast and furious, with Theala proving as handy with her staff as Bytor is with his magic sword; meanwhile, Smithe gains in courage. The dynamics between the three add dimension to their characterizations and also humor that leavens the violence and the aura of foreboding. Sword and sorcery fans will find much to please them. --Sally Estes
