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.
