The talent pool for the urban fantasy genre just expanded with Bennett’s arrival. This is an impressive debut, which opens the door for a series that promises to be exceedingly entertaining. The heroine is in a very difficult position; how she reacts to events gives this story plenty of emotional punch, not to mention some kick-butt action. Based on this, Bennett appears to have a bright future ahead!

For the last few years, Arcadia Bell (not her real name) has been co-owner of the Tambuku Tiki Lounge in La Sirena, Calif. Seven years ago, when she was a teen, her parents, Enola and Alexander Duval, were accused of being the killers of three rival occultists. Unable to prove their innocence, they faked their deaths and went into hiding. A sighting of her parents threatens them all as the head of the Luxe Order demands retribution. To prove their innocence, Arcadia needs to find who really ordered the Albino Demon to kill. To accomplish this, Arcadia is going to need the help of the intriguing Earthbound demon Lon Butler. (POCKET, Jul., 352 pp., $7.99)
