BOYFRIEND FROM HELL
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy
Quaid, aka fan favorite Patricia Rice, jumps into the urban fantasy genre with a bang by introducing her embattled but gutsy heroine Justine “Tina” Clancy. An area of Baltimore is a chemically contaminated nightmare, called the Zone, which imperils its residents. Quaid quickly establishes a unique cast of characters, full of flaws and mystery. There is plenty of humor, wild action and vigilante justice in this truly excellent beginning of the Saturn’s Daughter series.
With one strike against her (a faulty arrest), Tina is struggling to finish law school and maintain her job in the Zone working for the sexy but sleazy Andre Legrande. Tina finds out the hard way that she has some unusual abilities, when she accidentally condemns her boyfriend Max to hell. Now Max is showing up in mirrors, warning Tina that someone is after her. With the help of her new “attack kitten,” an invisible thief, a snake-charming PI and Andre, Tina hopes to learn what it means to be one of Saturn’s daughters — not to mention rescue Max! (POCKET, Oct., 400 pp., $7.99)
