Ed Gorman, award-winning author of Bad Moon Rising, says: "Banished, by Billie Sue Mosiman, is one of the most provocative and compelling fantasies I've read in a long time. Storytelling that is...stunning."
When the Queen of the Fallen Angels came to earth again she took the dead body of a 10-year-old native girl on an island. It was the 1200s and life was primitive, but Angelique managed to rule the people for 200 years until Columbus arrived. Escaping her island home, the little angel with her malevolent intent, wandered through the world using humans to do her biding as her parents and guardians. Then she brought down Nisroc, an angel she trusted to be her partner and helpmate. The problem was, Nisroc wasn't like Angelique. Nisroc learned to love. And he had to flee from his life with the terrible child before he lost what soul he had left.
