Tanya Huff’s supernatural fantasy Smoke series, with a gothic twist • Mix of ghostly mystery, paranormal horror, and dark humor • Lamba Award nominated Fans of the X-Files and Twin Peaks will love acclaimed master of contemporary fantasy Tanya Huff’s twisted version of vampires, wizards, and TV terror. When Tony Foster relocated to Vancouver with his vampire Henry Fitzroy, he knew it was his chance to get his act together. In an example of art echoing life, Tony landed a job as production assistant for the syndicated TV show Darkest Night, a series about a vampire detective. And except for his unrequited crush on the show’s handsome costar, Lee Nicholas, Tony was pretty content. Until everything started to fall apart on the set. It began with shadows—shadows where they didn’t belong, that almost had an existence of their own. Tony tried to ignore it—until he found Nikki Waugh’s body, and felt the shadow’s touch, and a stunt crash went wrong for no discernible reason—and Tony knew that he had to find out what was threatening everyone on the set. From the Paperback edition.
Tony, a former street kid-turned-wannabe producer, is working on the set of a TV series about a vampire detective, where he discovers the dead body of a cast member. Tony fears it has something to do with the strange shadows he has seen around the studio and when he turns to special-effects wizard Arra Pelindrake for help, she turns out to be the genuine article. The wizard escaped from a dangerous alternate dimension and has more than a passing acquaintance with the shadows. Together, Tony and his vampire friend Henry Fitzroy try to persuade Arra to cooperate but can't get her to face her fears and confront the shadows. But they are soon left with nowhere to run as they are drawn into battle, for the shadows are intent on gaining a foothold in this world.
