Welcome to the world of the Cosa Nostradamus, where humans and non-humans co-exist...uneasily.
Wren Valere knows she’s the best. So when she and her partner Sergei are hired to track down a missing - and deadly - parchment, she thinks it’ll be a piece of cake. And getting out of the city, with its rising tensions between human Talent and the fatae, seems like a really good idea.
The problem is, their employer hasn’t told them everything, and the job, taking them from the Italian countryside back to the summer-sweltering streets of New York City, will unleash a terrible magic that cannot be killed, or controlled….
Best or not, Wren’s going to need a miracle to pull this one off.
“[CURSE THE DARK] maintains the standard set in the first volume of this series. Gilman has managed the nearly impossible here: a cleverly written and well-balanced fantasy with a strong romantic element that doesn’t overpower the main plot.” — Romantic Times (4 1/2 Stars)
"[This series is]…an entertaining, fast-paced thriller set in a world where cell phones and computers exist uneasily with magic, and a couple engaging and highly talented rogues solve crimes while trying not to commit too many of their own.”— Locus
