Powerful witch Paige Winterborne, her ward Savannah and her lover, sorcerer Lucas Cortez, endeavor to build a new life in Portland, Oregon. Lucas' father is Benicio Cortez, head of the Cortez Sorcerer's Cabal. Although Lucas is the illegitimate rebel son, he is still his father's favorite and chosen heir.
Someone is murdering the teenage children of Cabal members and, knowing Lucas and Paige's predilection for helping those in trouble, Benicio requests their aid. It quickly becomes apparent that this killer is very dangerous, and Paige and Lucas will need help from a variety of supernatural beings if they're to stop this killer.
Industrial Magic is absolutely one of the year's best paranormal thrillers. Premier storyteller Armstrong really pulls out all the stops. For fans of her terrific Women of the Underworld series, this book will be hugely satisfying, since it reunites all the beloved characters from her previous books.(Oct., 560 pp., $6.99)
