Feehan fans are in for a treat with this brand new series that explores a magical crime family based in Chicago. The Ferraro family has the inherited ability to utilize portals and manipulate shadows, allowing them to run both legitimate and illegitimate businesses. Not only does this have Feehan’s patented intense characterization and kick-butt action, but also fascinating family dynamics. A new series to get hooked on!
Certain areas of Chicago are part of the Ferraro family’s territory and everyone, criminals included, knows better than to mess with their holdings. Francesca Cappello is running from her dangerous past and hoping to stay hidden. What she doesn’t expect is to come to the attention of Stefano Ferraro, the head of the infamous family. The minute Stefano sees Francesca, he realizes that she too has the shadow gift and therefore could give him much-needed heirs. As Francesca is unaware of her ability, Stefano wants to ease her into his world gently. However, Francesca’s past is about to catch up with her and blow that plan to smithereens.
