seraphsAbout the book:
Living among humans in a post-apocalyptic ice age, neomage Thorn St. Croix has learned to count on her friends, but she's lost count of her enemies. She is a source of both fear and fascination for the people of Mineral City: Her powers can save them from the forces of evil, but also attract demon spawn and succubae. And fighting on her own turf nearly gets Thorn and those she holds dear killed.

But Thorn's ultimate test awaits deep under the snow-covered mountains beyond the village, where an imprisoned, fallen seraph desperately needs her help. There, hidden in the hellhole, the armies of Darkness assemble to ensure this subterranean rescue will be Thorn's final descent.

drey's thoughts:
Ah, Thorn. Now her neo-mage secret is out in the open, and nobody's sure how to feel about her. Never mind that she's lived among them for the last 10 years. In any case, she has bigger fish to fry. Like something living in the depths of the mountains. Is it good? Is it bad? Is there anything in between?

But there's hardly time to think about this, when there are demon spawn to kill. Before they are killed themselves. So an uneasy peace becomes the status quo between Thorn and her neighbors, and they learn to work together to try to defeat the evil forces (omg! I so want to add "of the Decepticons" here, lol!!). At least for now...

Like a good post-apocalyptic yarn? Then pick up Bloodring and Seraphs. And let me know what you think!

Hi Drey,
I finished skinwalker. Liked it very much. I am about sixty pages into bloodcross so far oh so good. After that I will probably read carrie vaughn's voices of dragon's. What is the name of the book after bloodcross and when does it come out?
Take care my friend have a great week.

hey buddy!!

I so want to read Voices of Dragons too, but I have to go pick it up first, lol!

As for the Jane Yellowrock books, Mercy Blade is the next one, and it'll be out January 2011. I'm waiting!!

Hey drey thanks for the info. I think I will have enough time to read any book I want. I don't have the rogue mage series yet. I want to finish bloodcross first and get a little more info from you about rogue mage series. I know I will like carrie's new book voices of dragon's but will it reach happy dance level-I don't know.- It could help my lower back. Oh so sore right now. I hope everything is going well with you and your family? Take care my friend.

It's true, it's hard to find something that gets to the happy-dance level... Have you tried The Name of the Wind? It's one of my favorites, and check out Patrick's blog, he's totally hilarious!

Hey drey I typed a comment earlier today to thank-you for the Patrick blog link and the Name of the wind book shout out. There was an error with blogger when I tried to post it.

I like Patrick a lot. However when I tried to read Name of the Wind I didn't get very far at all. That would happen to a lot of good books back in the day when they would hit my shelf never to be looked at again. My average has improved a great deal. Now the only one I have trouble with is Brandon Sanderson Warbreaker. Who knew I would be the only person on Earth to not enjoy his books. Very lonely feeling. How many book does Patrick have out right now?

Take care my friend all the best.
