'What people need [in a book] is a little escapism, a little adventure - well, you've certainly given us that!' (Heather Jacobs) In this debut book scheduled to be the first in a series, K. Kylyra Ameringer introduces to the world Tronaugh, The Demon of Petty Disturbances, and her imp sidekick, DT.

The cover background artwork was done by KarrArikh Tor of Dark World International. 'Tor had already done some local paintings of Bantry, so he had a very clear idea of the look I wanted,' according to Ameringer. 'Combined with Adrian's illustration, the cover looks smashing.'
