NOTE: This is the second title featuring the sarcastic, butt-kicking heroine Kate is hip-deep in trouble.

The snarling, tantalizing dance that Kate and the Beast Lord Curran continue to engage in is worth the price of admission alone. As the new liaison between the Order and the Mercenary Guild, Kate ends up with the case of a teenage petitioner whose witch mother has disappeared. Kate is already working on a case for the shapeshifter pack, trying to recover items stolen by a thief who can turn to mist.

Following the trail of Julie Olsen's missing mom, Kate discovers an entire coven has disappeared. Magic flares in Atlanta, and all too soon Kate realizes that both her cases are terrifyingly linked to a burgeoning showdown between gods.

With this first-person series, Andrews -- a husband-and-wife writing team -- demonstrates her mastery at balancing dark humor, clever mystery and supernatural jeopardy. Andrews is the total package! (ACE, Apr., 272 pp., $6.99)
