'Somewhere something is waiting inside a stone. Somewhere several somebodies are looking for it. Somewhere a particular someone is waiting for it to be found so he can be released into a cataclysmic future. And somewhere else again, unreliable psychic Avril Audette and disaffected occult investigator Rupert Firth are joining a group attempting to validate the supernatural. This optimistic enterprise will lead the pair into a complex game of chance, skill and manipulation played by a coterie of otherworldly beings who rewrite the rules of reality on an hourly basis. Before they know what’s what (not something for which either has a natural talent), Avril and Rupert become involved in a scramble for the cryptic crystal known as First Frost, the possession of which will decide the destinies of worlds. In doing so, they are forced to cope with distractingly high levels of mutual attraction and the intermingling of their fates with those of a telekinetic amnesiac, a punk Valkyrie, a retired stuntman and his deceased relatives, the only living Elvish spin doctor, NASA, the staff of a very nice Indian restaurant, and the would-be assassins of a fellow traveller named Pherel. And then things get a bit complicated for everybody. For everybody, that is, except a something that somewhere waits inside a stone.'
