Overview

Nola O’Grady is sick and tired of psychic squid-images following her everywhere, waving their tentacles and generally making nuisances of themselves. She and her partner, Ari Nathan, have a dangerous job on their hands, hunting down two criminals who have escaped into another level of the multiverse, the San Francisco of Terra Six.


Terrorists have turned parts of that city into a deathtrap—religious fanatics, yes, but from what religion? Nola suspects that the Peacock Angel Chaos cult lies behind the bombings and mass murders. As she gathers evidence, she finds herself face-to-face with part of her own personal past that she’d prefer to bury forever.


And by the way, just who is it that keeps trying to kill her?

Editorial Reviews

Kelly McCullough
“License to Ensorcell is a fast fun read, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes their urban fantasy with a side of humor or vice versa. Fans of Esther Freisner, Anton Strout, or Jody Lynn Nye will find a lot to like here.”
Monsters and Critics
“There is plenty of quick paced action...involving overlapping dimensions, pandimensional creatures, secret societies and family issues.”
SFRevu
“A well-respected fantasy writer, Kerr has adapted well to the gritty worlds of urban fantasy and created a strange new universe.”

Meet the Author

Katharine Kerr first became involved in the field of fantasy through role-playing games, becoming so intrigued that she began writing articles for gaming magazines, and for some time was a contributing editor to Dragon magazine. This interest soon led her into the field of fantasy writing, with her first Deverry novel, Daggerspell, appearing in 1986. Since then, she has written fourteen more Deverry novels, of which The Silver Mage is the latest, as well as other fantasy and science fiction novels. Her Deverry novels have hit the London Times and the Australian bestseller lists.

    Another great book

    This is another great book in the Nola O'Grady series. The books continue to get better and better. This series started off as a wonderful example of Urban Fantasy but now seems to start more leanings into SciFi as well. That is by no means a complaint. I love the deviant worlds and species with their own brands of "magic". The plots are always so interesting and intense. Nola is a perfect heroine--kickass, self-confident, magical abilities, intelligent, tough. Yes she has problems but continues to mature with each book. I also love her crazy family (ok except for her mother who is a real -itch!!) Her relationship with Ari is so much a part of the story but yet in no way do I consider this series as"romance"--and I mean that as a plus! I love the time spent in Nola's world(worlds?) & look forward to more forays in the future. Thank you Ms. Kerr for a fabulous series and can I have more, please?

    Urban fantasy romance with wonderful, complex world-building

    Love on the Run is the fourth Nola O'Grady adventure and, as they say, the plot thickens. From the first, these books have stood in my mind above the usual urban fantasy by the complexity of the world building. Nola is a paranormal investigator for the Apocalyse Squad, a branch of a super-secret agency; her sweetheart, Israeli Interpol agent Ari, is by no means mundane, and her large extended family is variously gifted and not always on the right side of the law on this and several other Earths. The multiplicity of parallel worlds remind me strongly of some of my favorite early Andre Norton science fiction novels, particularly the radioactive, gang-ridden version of San Francisco and the wet Venus with a single moon, home to intelligent, psychic squids. With each book, the universe has gotten larger, as new alternate worlds, new characters, species, and tensions have been introduced. Kerr is far too imaginative and thoughtful a writer to ignore the interwoven connections, implications, and nuances of even a "simple" story. As a result, each book elaborates established elements and introduces new ones. Now the threads are coming together, and we see the connections between Nola's eating disorder, Ari's childhood in a seriously warped New Age kibbutz, or why the Peacock Angel is a force of evil in one dimension but a power for good in another. The result kicks the story impact up exponentially. "Love On The Run" is the perfect title because the romance, although present and continuing to develop, has to take place in moments snatched while dealing with one escalating crisis after another.
