Image of The Hour of Dust and Ashes (Charlie Madigan, Book 3)

Sadly, it seems to be the indomitable Charlie Madigan’s fate to prevent one disaster only to have a new one crop up in its place. For her third outing, Gay forces Charlie to make difficult choices that will have major ramifications personally and professionally. By continuing to define her world and add layers to her core group of characters, Gay ensures readers are in for one heart-pounding adventure!

Although she defeated one enemy and prevented the Sons of Dawn cult leader Grigori Tennin from waking an ancient, Charlie now fears that her “ash”-addicted sister Bryn may also be possessed by a spirit of a deceased Sons of Dawn member. To find out, Charlie must locate legendary sylphs and accept their tests. Meanwhile her siren partner Hank has his full powers back, but secrets from his past are now threatening. To save her sister and stop a war from being launched, Charlie may have to go to hell aka Charbydon … luckily her daughter Emma has a hellhound as a pet/guardian. (POCKET, Sep., 330 pp., $7.99)
