This modern urban fantasy trilogy takes Keeper Claire (a Guardian of Earth), her talking cat Austin (who always knows best), hunky handyman Dean (who refuses to remain a Bystander) and Claire's meddling younger sister Diana from a B&B where Hell has a portal in the basement and the clientele is out of this world...to an assignment where they must ride herd on an angel and a devil who have manifested in the mortal world as fully endowed teenagers who don't have a clue how to deal with their raging hormones and conflicting needs to do good and evil...to a shopping mall where Darkness is trying to stage a takeover from the Otherside....
Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular.
