Read full description of the books:
A cover that raises the question: "Horseriding in a brass bikini? Doesn't that pinch?"
Overall, it's an entertaining story, consisting of a series of episodic adventures as Tiana obtains the necessary mummified wizardly body parts for this-doesn't-sound-like-a-good-idea reasons.
But never mind logic or motivation! Or the writing that occasionally tries too hard and winds up using the words like "nigh" and "ere" in narration, or reverses the word order for...I don't know, dramatic effect or something ("A pirate craft she was")! Or the fact that Offutt doesn't seem to know how many a "score" of items are (extremely youthful maidens are apparently twoscore years old, while Tiana is threescore)! Or that the entire motivation for her involvement doesn't stand close examination (being that Tiana, as an illegitimate child of a prominent Duke, was adopted by a pirate captain at a young age, yet she cares deeply for the half brother who she...never met? Met briefly? Saw at a distance?)! Or the fact that the deal with this Lamarred character stinks to high Heaven from the first moment!
After all, there are vampire nuns to deal with! Kingly tombs to rob!Grotesque overgrown gardens of death to...violently prune! Extraordinarily dangerous hang-gliding to accomplish! Body parts to assemble! Mirrors to stare into! She has to comment on her own appearance frequently and think about its effect on the surrounding men! And then kill them!
The story moves briskly, and each episode is sized such that none become tedious.

As an editor Offutt produced a series of five anthologies entitled Swords Against Darkness, which included the first professional sale by Charles de Lint.
