Publisher Comments:

The bad girl of the magical underworld is back and badder than ever

Someone wants Marla Mason dead. Usually thats not news. As chief sorcerer of Felport, someone always wants her dead. But this time shes the target of a renegade assassin who specializes in killing his victims over days, months, or even years. Not to mention a mysterious knife-wielding killer in black who pops up in the most unexpected places. To make matters worse, an inmate has broken out of the Blackwing Institute for criminally insane sorcerers—a troubled psychic who can literally reweave the fabric of reality to match her own traumatic past.

With her wisecracking partner Rondeau reluctantly in tow, Marla teams up with a “love-talker” whose dangerous erotic spells not even she can resist. Together theyre searching the rapidly transforming streets of Felport for a woman whos become the Typhoid Mary of nightmares, infecting everything—and everyone—she touches with a chaos worse than death itself.

Review:

"Marla Mason, guardian mage of the east coast city of Felport, returns in her second major magical challenge (after Blood Engines): catching a psycho, and psychic, dream 'reweaver' before the psycho turns into an endless nightmare. Genevieve Kelley, a former apprentice sorcerer, vanishes from the Blackwing Institute for Criminally Insane Sorcerers after laying catatonic for 15 years, having put herself into a protective deep sleep after being raped. With the ability to 'reweave' physical reality, the terrified psychic is trying to escape Reave, king of nightmares, the avatar of her rapist. Marla, drawn in and out of Genevieve's dream reality, hires Ted, a former street bum turned skeptical personal assistant, and Joshua, a delectable 'lovetalker,' to help her put a lid on Genevieve as an important sorcerer assembly approaches. A rival sorcerer, Gregor, also seeks to eliminate the marvelous Marla by hiring Zealand, a 'slow assassin.' Pratt keeps the action lively in this wonderfully whimsical urban fantasy as the adventure of Genevieve takes some wonderfully imaginative twists and turns. (Apr.) " Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to "Blood Engines," not-so-wicked witch Marla Mason must stop the Typhoid Mary of Nightmares from infecting everyone and everything she touches. Original.
