Publisher Comments:

New Mexico, 1867: Months have passed since hexslinger Chess Pargeter sacrificed himself to restore the town of Bewelcome, once cursed to salt by his former lover, Reverend Asher Rook. Now a coalition led by Allan Pinkerton's Detective Agency lays siege to reborn Mayan goddess Ixchel's notorious Hex City, the one place on earth where hexes can act in consort, and the desert just outside Bewelcome has become the front line in what threatens to become a new Civil War - one in which wild magic and black science clash headlong, producing carnage like nothing the world has ever seen

Review:

"Apocalypse threatens on all sides in the rousing conclusion to Files's remarkable Hexslinger trilogy (after A Rope of Thorns), set in the post-Civil War American southwest. Magically-corrupt detective Allan Pinkerton's army, with its anti-magic devices and enslaved hexes, advances on the beleaguered Reverend Asher Rook's Hex City (a refuge for persecuted magic-wielders) as a group of women, including dead-speaker Yancy Kloves and the powerful but crippled Chinese hex, Songbird, struggle to aid Chess Pargeter's escape from the underworld. Throughout the proceedings, trickster god Tezcatlipoca roams free in Chess's body, only adding to the mischief. Underlying the plentiful gore are the moral dilemmas of both Pinkerton's more ethical agents and the hexes, whose freedom comes at the terrible price of blood-sacrifices to the goddess Ixchel. With her assemblage of strong female characters balancing the flamboyantly gay Chess and his former lovers, Files turns in a bravura performance, bringing a complex conflict among gods, monsters, hexes, and ordinary humans to a satisfying resolution.
