A seductive magic mirror lies hidden deep in a demon’s lair, with a simple warning: don’t stare at the glass...

Ice is a troubled fairy trying her best to survive in the squalid underworld of the Shadowfae. When she spends a hot night with a demon lord, she discovers a powerful magic mirror in his lair — and pilfers it, knowing it’s the key to escaping her bleak life as a two-bit con artist.  But Ice soon discovers that the mirror's power comes with a price...madness, which is slowly overtaking her.

Indigo oozes darkness, danger and tempting sensuality.  He’s been sent to destroy Ice and bring the mirror back to its rightful owner; a mission that, if he fails, will cost him his life.  But when he meets Ice, he faces an even greater challenge: an insatiable sexual hunger that neither of them can deny, and dark passions that threaten to claim them both forever.  The trouble is, the longer he stays within the mirror’s reach, the greater its hold on his sanity—and the stronger his determination to save Ice...

"Take an unbelievably sexy fae heroine who thinks she's a geek and a blue metalfae, and you have one steamy urban fantasy...  The unique characters have few morals and are totally engaging, and a colorful alternate world in contemporary Melbourne is the perfect spot for the magical, fast-paced plot."
--RT Reviews, four stars

"This engaging sequel to 2009’s Shadowfae weaves rich sensual imagery and dark eroticism into a breathless thriller plot. Thieving fairies, vampire gangsters, powerful demon lords, and creepy earth-bound angels all compete in a frenetic, bloody race to gain possession of a powerful magical artifact, a tiny mirror from Hell that destroys inhibitions. Light-fingered party girl Ice, a strawberry-scented water fairy, finds herself brazenly indulging in both lust and brave anger after she steals the mirror from Kane, demon lord of decadent Melbourne. When she loses it, sexy metal fairy Indigo, attracted to Ice but fearful of connection, offers to betray alliances and help her regain the item, but his own mirror-taint makes him mercurial and impossible to trust. Hayes’s characters have distinct and delightful voices, and she’s developed considerable skill at blending the gritty and the supernatural."
