"He didn't think the red-haired girl was a demon, but she certainly wasn't human. She was ... He tried to find the right word. She was un-natural."
Really quick read. It's the story of Scathah's rescue of Joan as told by William of York. It's another epic battle of The Shadow. It's already known in the Magician that Joan was saved and it was Scatty who did it, but it was never really explained. It was really nice to get the vivid picture of Scatty's love for Joan and it makes the subsequent adventures they have in the series even more believable especially because of the injury William received for harming Joan!
