About the Author
She began her career as a medievalist, then jumped off the tenure track to try some other things. Besides teaching English and philosophy, she's worked as a technical writer, freelance editor and instructional designer, college admissions counselor, and corporate trainer.
Nancy lives in upstate New York with her husband Steve, where they both work from home without getting on each other's nerves. She enjoys visiting local wineries and listening obsessively to opera. There are still a lot of books she wants to read.

The main character is a shapeshifter who fights dream demons to rid people of nightmares, as well as the occasional harpie or more dangerous traditional demon, the plot is captivating.
The one down side...this author tries to use welsh words, welsh names, welsh legends in her stories and she seems to have gotten them from googling bad web pages, her translations are poor, the names sound corny and the legends are poorly told...basically it's really annoying for anyone with any knowledge of welsh to read these books. The story gets you through the book but not without rolling your eyes.
This installment started off a bit slow for me. The story was enjoyable, however, the author donated a little bit more time to Vicky's relationship with her were boyfriend than I would've preferred.
I agree with another reviewer in regards to the cover. I personally found it hideous and I felt that it does not do the series justice.
I found the motive and story plot purposeless. Don't get me wrong, there was action-packed parts and interesting moments, but the story itself felt forced.
Although, I found many parts boring, the book was not dreadful; it just was not as consistently exciting as previous books. Vicky's interaction with her niece and their aunt Mab is always a treat and was a definite highlight.
I recommend this book to fellow dark urban fantasy readers and will read the next book in the series Hellhound due out in 2013.
I also recommend:
Magic Bites (Kate Daniels, Book 1)
Lethal Rider (Lords of Deliverance)
Secrets of the Demon (Kara Gillian, Book 3)
Harvest Hunting (Sisters of the Moon, Book 8)
The Darklands were amazing with it's environment as pictured by Nancy Holzer.
Darklands will be way worth your time.
