    The terrific second Kalinczyk urban fantasy is a great saga

    In Detroit, city fire department arson investigator Anya Kalinczyk works more than just the blazes as she is also a Lantern. Her latter skill is to send spirits into nothingness. Used to 24/7 shifts, six months ago, with her salamander familiar Sparky having her back, she faced the vaunting challenge of Sirrush (see Embers) and has been slow to rebound mentally.

    Recently, Anya feels she is returning to her lifestyle pre Sirrush. However, her two skills merge when she is assigned an investigation into what has been purported to be spontaneous human combustion at the home of elderly wealthy Jasper Bernard who was caught in the inferno but left not an iota of a trace of his remains. Her inquiry leads to Hope Solomon who insists she grants miracles to her donors. While Sparky hatches the next generation, Anya senses something not quite right about her or her charity backers as if evil has taken hold feeding on the souls of the desperate.

    The terrific second Kalinczyk urban fantasy is a great saga that works mostly because of the portrait of Detroit as a city with many ruins, but trying to recreate a new image. The heroine is fabulous as she keeps her wits and sense of humor in the midst of infernos (some created by unnatural arsons) while battling psychopathic and avarice arsonists and supernatural malevolent essences; in this preying on impoverish forlorn seeking miracles.

    Scorching sequel to Embers - I hope there will be a third in the series!

    "...Sparks has every bit as much page-turning intrigue as its predecessor; it's gritty and gripping. There's still a romantic element between Anya and Brian, but things get a little complicated on that front (without being melodramatic or plot-dominating). And just as with the end of Embers, there is another sweet boss fight at the end of this one.

    If you're looking for something other than the usual vampire/werewolf fare in the genre, you need to check this out. Bickle has something special and original in Anya Kalinczyk."
