Overview

Magic can be deadly...

When Private Investigator Jonathan Shade's ex-lover walks into his Denver office asking him to prove her father didn't commit the murder that dozens of witnesses saw and security cameras captured, Shade finds himself in the thick of magical intrigue. In a world where evil warlocks refuse to die, magically engineered assassins deal merciless death and ancient myths aren't quite so mythical, only Shade and his sexy partner, Kelly, can stop a power-hungry sorcerer from taking over the world.

Too bad Shade doesn't have any magic.

Meet the Author

They say that truth is stranger than fiction.
Some of the following is true. For example, Gary Jonas writes fantasy novels such as Modern Sorcery and One-Way Ticket to Midnight. Well, that's sort of true. The truth is that he's already written those, but he will write more unless he gets too bored. But we'll call that an example of true. Gary's wife is Jessica Alba. Sadly, this is false. Jessica Alba won't return his calls, but that's the way it goes, and no, the restraining order doesn't prevent him from going to California.
Gary is an author for Sky Warrior Books. This is also true. In our quest for world domination, we know that having someone like Gary at our side during a zombie apocalypse is pretty useful. We can at least throw him in front of the zombie hordes while we run away screaming.
It's not that we don't appreciate our authors. We just know our limitations.
Gary, however, has added a number of true and false questions for us to puzzle over. Here are three; can you pick out the false one?
1. Gary's stepmother hired a stranger to shoot off her foot with a shotgun.
2. Gary dreams of creating a religion so he won't have to pay taxes and, in spite of the fact that he writes fantasy, people will believe him and pay him lots of money.
3. Gary dressed in drag and appeared on stage in front of a large audience telling a popular fantasy author that he wanted the author to lick his beaver, and raised his skirt to reveal a stuffed beaver hanging there ready for action.
Which is false? None of them. Which is why Gary is part of the Evil Overlord plan and a valued minion. His other works include the upcoming Quick Shots, a collection of short stories and Modern Sorcery, an urban fantasy series. Check out his website http://www.sff.net/people/gary_jonas/
Oh, and don't tell him about the zombie hordes.

    good start

    I think it could go somewhere, as a series. on it's own, it was a decent read, but nothing I couldn't put down.

    Loved this fast paced fun high packed adventure!

    I loved this book! I couldn't put it down once I started. I read all night long and then I borrowed my friend's kindle to finish it the next day since I didn't want to lug my lap top with me everywhere I needed to go. But I would have if necessary. I didn't want to stop reading, I had to find out what happened next! There was a ton of great action, lots of funny banter, an amazingly evil villian, (Gotta love those) and a handsome, butt-kicking, dynamic hero. (Gotta love those even more!) But then let's not forget the unexpected twists and turns and laugh out loud moments that ease the tension at just the right time. I want more Jonathan Shade and Kelly Chan fight scenes and interaction and quick shots at each other I just couldn't get enough. I thought the mix of magic and mythology was blended masterfully. The plot and sub plots pulled you along page by page and it was easy to be caught up in Jonathan's world. Character development was three dementional and you felt as if you knew each one personally. I want to know what happens next for Sharon, Kelly, Ester and Jonathan, I want to know how the magical world collides with mythology and the mundane world in the next book, I just want more! Modern Sorcery read so fast and the details were so vivid that it was as if it all played out in real life before me. I was surprised by the ending that I didn't see coming, and didn't want the story to end. I look forward with great anticipation to more Modern Sorcery adventures in this exciting new series, and can't wait for more of Jonathan Slade's action packed punches with his unique touch of sly humor.
