Lily Carpenter’s father is not your typical dad. He can change shape, make people feel really good just by seeing him, and drain energy from them during sex. Faran is an incubus (when he’s not a succubus).
Faran, aka Helfaran Gef Nartharoll, was summoned to Earth around Christmas 1984 by a bunch of students after a good time. One of them, Sally Carpenter, a witch, got more than she bargained for when she gave birth to a healthy, if underweight, baby girl three months later. By then Faran was back in the demon’s realm and it was years before Faran was summoned again. The birth of his half-demon child gave him a link to Earth, allowing him to stay, and for several years he was the perfect father. Then the link between them started driving a teenage Lily to more and more wild behaviour, and eventually Sally had to have him banished.
The experience left Lily with a profound fear of what might happen if Faran ever returned to Earth. If you want to know what happens when he does, then you should read Legacy, the third book in the Thaumatology series.
In other news, you’ll find short reviews of Thaumatology 101 and Tales from High Towers’ Study over in Smashwords by Ellen J. Miller. Ellen is a friend, but she likes the books anyway. She’s also my chief sanity checker. If she thinks I’ve gone off the deep end with any of these books, I know I need a rewrite.
