Reviews

PI Gwen Gellman, the tough-girl heroine of Cunningham's fast-paced second changeling detective novel (after 2004's Shadows in the Darkness), is starting to accept she's not human. While Gwen is curious to explore her recently discovered elf heritage, she's far too busy trying to prove her mentor was murdered, looking for the missing wife and child of her lesbian attorney friend's abusive ex-husband, tracking down a pimp who enslaves Russian girls, dealing with an addictive aphrodisiacal but not yet illicit herbal drug, uncovering and avoiding lethal corruption in the Providence, R.I., police force and much, much more. Meanwhile, elvish politics that closely resemble those of the Mafia crossed with rigorous eugenics pose a potential threat. The fate of all elfdom and the human race the elves despise may somehow depend on Gwen. With its winning rainbow coalition of characters, this fantasy-crime hybrid is almost too much of a good thing for readers who haven't read the first volume and still await the third. (Feb.)

" A fun mystery, an intriguing introduction to a new tough-girl supernatural detective." --"Locus "on "Shadows in the Darkness"

" ... this fast read will be a hit with readers who enjoy mysteries with paranormal twists. Think of a less sexy fey detective than Laurell K. Hamilton' s Meredith Gentry, and be prepared to buy the sequel; readers will be eager to follow GiGi' s adventures as she comes into her elven birthright." -- "Voices of Youth Advocates" on" Shadows in the Darkness"

Fired from the vice squad when a failed bust becomes a bloodbath, Gwen Gelman opens her own P.I. business focused on domestic problems and runaways. Called to investigate a missing-persons case involving the wife and son of someone she dislikes immensely, Gelman begins questioning her own cloudy past and slowly awakens to her changeling heritage. The second installment in a series that began with Shadows in the Darkness features a wise-cracking, gun-toting heroine and a fast-paced story of an elven legacy rediscovered. This modern fantasy/crime mix belongs in most libraries, especially those owning the first in the series. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
