Faery Moon by P.R. Frost
July 6, 2009 - Amy Phelps
A fantasy writer finds the situations found in her novels are can be more reality than fantasy - at least for her, in P.R. Frost's "Faery Moon," another book following Tess Noncoire.
Tess is attending a writer's conference in Las Vegas with her mother in tow. Tess is no ordinary writer, however, she is also a Celestial Blade Warrior, someone who fights the forces of evil from other dimensional intruders. With the help of a funy little imp called Scrap, who turns into her weapon when needed, Tess is used to strange and unusual adventures.
But this trip may be a bit than she bargained for. Tess is trying to get her mom out after the death of her husband - who just so happened to be not of this world either - and her trip is off to a rocky start thanks to the over-anxious empath in the next aisle whose portents of doom shake the other passengers. And that's just the beginning - Tess encounters a wereweasel who's scalping tickets for the hottest show in town and working for an ancient vampire, an untrustworthy fellow Warrior, her hot sometimes boyfriend, Donovan, her mentor and sometimes love interest, Gollum, and captive faeries. And now her mother's thinking of becoming a casino blue's singer. While Tess tries to save the faeries and their land, her mother, and possibly her own sanity and love life, she finds more danger than anyone should expect at a writing conference or a wild weekend in Vegas. By the time she's through, her life will be changed forever - not necessarily a good thing.
Frost's story combines fantasy, drama, romance and humor in a fun and at times heartbreaking adventure that would appeal to fans of the urban fantasy genre. "Faery Moon" is published by Daw. It is $24.95 and is 355 pages long. Look for the other books in the series, "Hounding the Moon" and "Moon in the Mirror" at bookstores.
