Image of Demon Bound (Black London, Book 2)

Kittredge takes readers back to
the gritty underbelly of London as
a demonic debt comes due. This
second book in the Black London series focuses on the lethal bargain crow mage Jack Winter made in the face
of death, and how it may now impact Pete. Kittredge's blunt description of the nature of "The Black" evokes a visceral response to its brutality and twisted nature. If you love your urban fantasy unrelentingly grim and edgy, this is the series for you.

Because of a demonic bargain he made 13 years ago when he was dying, Jack Winter is a dead man walking. His time is almost up, and the demon is taunting Jack with his upcoming doom. Jack is not one to go down without a fight, especially now that he has something to fight and live for -- Pete Caldecott.

Pete doesn't know about Jack's deadly bargain, and she's growing impatient with his secretiveness. That won't stop her from following Jack to Thailand as he makes a last-ditch effort to subvert the bargain. (ST. MARTIN'S, Dec., 352 pp., $7.99)
