A genuine page-turner. Arden grows ever more powerful and assured, yet struggles under the sheer weight of human and Otherside prejudices she’s forced to deal with. Hill deftly piles trouble upon trouble, investing readers in both the urban fantasy and the allegory.

There should have been nowhere for Otherside to go after Eternal Huntress, yet Hill has managed not only to continue the series but also to up the sense of peril and urgency—humanity’s unceasing bigotry proving more problematic than the gods’ ire.

A page-turning finale, though the allure rests more in Arden’s ongoing fight to establish herself than in the end-of-days confrontation (a touch anticlimactic, for all its power and elegance). Hill again proves a devilishly dab hand at heaping trouble upon her characters.

Hill continues to enthral, pitting her protagonist against domino-chains of adversity. Arden stands representative of persons from all minority groups, forced constantly to fight for her place in the world. Her character is inspirational and her triumph this book is immensely satisfying.

This indie fantasy series becomes ever more assured. Readers may miss something of the old Arden—the private investigator who operated at least partly in the human world—but there’s no denying her character growth or the lure of Otherside’s power struggles.
