Carved from Stone and Dream (#2)

Previous: Where Oblivion Lives (#1) | Next: A Song With Teeth (#3)

February 1939

Catalonia has fallen. Los Nefilim is in retreat.

With the Nationalist forces hard on their heels, the members of Los Nefilim—Spanish Nephilim that possess the power to harness music and light in the supernatural war between the angels and daimons—make a desperate run for the French border.

Diago Alvarez, a singular being of angelic and daimonic descent, follows Guillermo and a small group of nefilim through the Pyrenees, where the ice is as treacherous as postwar loyalties—both can kill with a single slip. When a notebook of Los Nefilim’s undercover operatives falls into a traitor’s hands, Diago and Guillermo risk their lives to track it down. As they uncover a pocket realm deep within the Pyrenees, Diago discovers his family is held hostage.

Faced with an impossible choice: betray Los Nefilim, or watch his family die, Diago must nurture the daimonic song he has so long denied in order to save those he loves.


“Frohock seamlessly blends fantasy and WWII history into a heart-wrenching story of war in the action-packed second Los Nefilim novel.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone, but readers will enjoy the depth of the characters more if they read Where Oblivion Lives first. Recommended for fans of dark fantasy, supernatural beings interacting with humanity, and spy stories.”

Library Journal

“Frohock charts her own path between the genres, drawing on many, subscribing to none — an innovator of style more than a follower of fashion. There are glimpses of urban fantasy, of horror, of historical fantasy, as well as a big enough dose of tense action for a Hollywood blockbuster, but ultimately CARVED FROM STONE AND DREAM is a unique and rewarding pleasure that defies categorisation.”

The Fantasy Hive

[S]olid, thoughtful and beautifully stark writing that doesn’t waste a word or pull a punch.”

Starlit Book

“What I will forever love about these books are the strength of the characters, the importance placed on their bonds with each other and the strength they draw from each others love […] The writing as per usual is beautiful. It pulls you right in and brings the story to life with a colourful intensity. The characters and the setting are so wonderfully drawn. Frohock has created something truly brilliant and it’s always such a joy to inhabit this world (even when it hurts).”

Wild Heart Read

“Excellently written (Frohock’s best work to date), potent, powerful, and memorable.”
