This is a story about the adventures of a half human alien who is on a manhunt for an old enemy from her planet. The book starts out innocently enough until one realizes that there is something different about her. In the backdrop of spy and military fiction we discover that she is more than she appears to be, and that her enemy is the basis for a work of literature, and that humanity is on the brink of ascension. It is an amalgam of action adventure, dark fantasy and specualtive science fiction all rolled into one, and you will find it hard to put down once you start.
Moore's writing style is visual and crafted rather like a screen play with enough room for the reader to visualize and imagine freely. She pushes the outside of the erotic envelope without resorting to soft core porn, and there are few expletives except in extreme cases. On the whole it is a work crafted in the tradition of Rudyard Kipling, Robert E. Howard and H. Rider Haggard, with enough room for Phillip K. Dick.
