ANY GIVEN DOOMSDAY
Handeland is back with a striking new series, The Phoenix Chronicles, narrated by a heroine thrown headfirst into
a fairly apocalyptic scenario. With sex and power intertwined, there's a decidedly sexy edge to this book. Handeland looks to have another winner of a series on her hands!
It's up to fellow ex-foster kid Jimmy Sanducci to fill in the blanks. Ruthie had been a powerful seer, and Jimmy her demon-killing tool. Now it's up to Liz. Despite her reservations, she has no choice, for someone or something is sending nasty supernatural assassins after her. (ST. MARTIN'S, Nov., 352 pp., $6.99)
