Property of a Lady Faire (#8)

Previous: Casino Infernale | Next: From a Drood to a Kill

Call me Drood, Eddie Drood. Some know me as Shaman Bond and most simply don’t want to know me at all. For centuries, my family has been keeping the things that lurk on the darker side of existence as far away as possible from humans like you, without you even knowing we’re there.

Unfortunately for us, not everybody appreciates what we Droods do. Recently, I personally managed to survive yet another attempt on my life, but the rest of my relatives weren’t so lucky. My parents are missing in action. My grandfather has been murdered. And the future of my family lies in the iron grasp of the Lady Faire, an incredibly seductive, mysterious, and powerful being.

She possesses an ancient object that can save them. I have to steal it from her. Easy enough to say, difficult—and very, very dangerous—to do…


“Tons of plot, nonstop semicomic action, and further revelations about the entire Drood brood and their mysterious mission—what’s not to enjoy? Close to the best of a fun series.”


“Jumping from battle to battle, the action never stops in this eighth series entry that attempts to cross James Bond-style secret agent high jinks with urban fantasy. Fun, escapist fare.”

Library Journal

“Green’s imagination seems boundless, and this eighth installment of his snarky, dark paranormal noir Eddie Drood series is only further proof of that. Green also manages to weave genuinely moving moments and deeply poignant relationships into the colorful and irresistibly humorous scenes, creating a story that is superbly well balanced and instantly engaging.”

RT Book Reviews

“Green’s worldwide legions of fans are sure to enjoy this newest entry into the Histories, as it represents all that readers have come to desire in an Eddie Drood and Molly Metcalf story: action, romance, intrigue, surprises around every corner, and an impossible threat defeated by heroism.”


“It’s inventive, it’s lively and […] I always enjoy reading his work. His writing is like taking a whirl on a Snap-the-Whip ride in an amusement park with a soundtrack of comedy albums […] and it works!”

Kings River Life Magazine

“Witty as always, Simon R. Green’s PROPERTY OF A LADY FAIRE was a fun romp […] light-hearted adventure full of a great balance of humor and action.”
