The Silver Angel
Barbara M Hodges
Tigress Press
ISBN: 097613151X

Seven years ago the Rift between Earth and Daradawn closed. On Earth, humans Ben and his daughter Delilah raise her six years old half-breed daughter Angel by themselves as her purebred eleven father is on the other world. However, now the Rift is reopening; Ben and Angel want to give Delilah a chance to meet the patriarchal side of her family and to slow the aging process that has the six years old looking and acting like a teenager.

Although Ben looks forward to crossing over, Delilah does not. Also waiting to go back to Daradawn, Dirrk the sorcerer has returned from the dead with the help of Kelsey’s stepson; his goal has not changed. He plans to take over the kingdom with Regan as his queen or see her dead. His opportunity rises with the inadvertent help of the reluctant Delilah. The battle of good vs. evil has reached the next generation.

THE SILVER ANGEL is a terrific action-packed romantic fantasy starring the return of several delightful protagonists and an evil antagonist from the previous thrillers (see THE BLUE FLAME and EMERALD DAGGER) and the introduction of the next generation. Though the ensemble cast may at times seem overwhelming to newcomers, the tale stands alone and is fun to follow once the reader understands the relationships (for returning fans this is no problem); especially between key cast members and the two sisters (Regan and Kelsey) who serve as the center of the trilogy. Barbara M. Hodges provides a fabulous tale that grips her audience from start to finish leaving a desire for more trips to Daradawn.
