From back of book: From the author of Bloodring comes its thrilling follow up, set a century after the apocalypse and portraying a world inth throes of an ice age--and a never-ending battle among seraphs, demons, and humans...
Living among humans in a postapocalyptic 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 poeple of Mineral City. Her powers can save them from the forces of evil, but can 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 that this subterranean rescue will be Thorn's final descent...
