Bone Gods drops you into London, coasting with the black and reveling in the light. Kittredge has delivered an exciting, darkly humorous tale of just how far someone is pushed to save the world. Pete is one chick you don’t want to mess with!
A dead body found in the History Museum triggers the beginning of the end, unless Pete follows her impossible task, truly a test in light versus dark. Ollie, her former partner, is finding that magic really does exist. Jack might not be as gone as Pete once thought, but being in hell changes a man. And Pete’s missing mother reappears, but is she really there for her daughter — or her group’s own misguided beliefs? (ST. MARTIN’S, Dec., 352 pp., $7.99)
