Author(s): 

Life has really changed for new magic user Tate Eresby in the third outing of Collins’ exceptional Golgotham series. Relations between the human and supernatural citizens of Manhattan and Golgotham continue to be strained and subject to manipulation. With protagonists Tate and Hexe, Collins has created a fascinating pair of lovers struggling to both survive and thrive. This is a truly stellar mix of high-stakes action, drama and magical peril.

Tate and her lover Hexe, who also happens to be the heir to the Kymeran throne, had hoped that with the arrest of criminal overlord Boss Marz, life would get more peaceful in Golgotham. Sadly it has not, as Marz is soon back on the streets and even more dangerous than before. In an act of revenge, Marz has Hexe’s magical right hand smashed, leaving him unable to conjure his benign magic. A search for a way to repair Hexe’s hand leads to a potentially dangerous solution … one they may seriously regret. Then Tate learns she is pregnant. (ROC, Nov., 304 pp., $7.99)
