Delia never thought her love of adventure and artifact hunting would lead her to discover such oddities as man-slaying monsters, magical swords, and elves on motorcycles. Oh, and there's also the ancient Spartan warrior who's been stranded in the present - he's offering to work as her bodyguard in exchange for English lessons.
She's barely wrapped her mind around these strange new developments when another monster arrives, this time in Sedona, Arizona. The tourist town is known for its majestic rock formations, "healing vortexes," and ruins left by the Sinagua, a native people who mysteriously disappeared hundreds of years ago. Monsters are a more recent development. This one is leaving death and destruction in its wake, and Delia and her friends are the only ones who know what's going on. They're also the only ones with a weapon that can harm the creature - if they can find it.
To add to their problems, a centuries-old evil has been reawakened, one that threatens to deliver the people of Sedona to the same fate as the Sinagua. And Delia and her friends along with them.

There's nothing particularly ground breaking in this story, but if you enjoy a fast paced fantasy novel with a quirky, ragtag group of monster hunters, this is the book for you. It's protagonists are full of personality and never feel quite comfortable with the hand fate deals them. The last act really ups the ante and beings it to a satisfying conclusion.
loved listening to the latest installment, in the Rust and Relics series. Exciting storyline, filled with action and humor.
As a true fantasy fiction addict, I can honestly say that this is my fav series out of hundreds I have read/listened to! Unique storyline with a compelling mystery running through, a bit of romance (without it ever becoming the focus in the least), great narration and truly funny interaction between characters who are realistically more than one dimensional. It's fun, creative, and compelling! Can't wait for the next!!!! Hurry!!!
Ready, so ready, for book 3! Elegant and compelling mix of contemporary, lovable characters and other worldly situations.
