Smoke and Mirrors is Tanya Huff’s second smoke book. I enjoyed this one more than the first, reading it almost in a single setting.  The main character is again Tony Foster, at work as a production assistant on the TV show starring a vampire detective.  The plot centers on filming an episode in a haunted and demonically possessed house.

Why is this book better than the previous? I liked the tension from the strong parallel narrative from two of the ghosts’ point of view, in contrast with the first book exclusively following Tony.  The setting is confined to the haunted house and it’s relentlessly spooky – that also works.

The characters are well-defined and occasionally funny.
