Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Child of Fire is excellent reading: a truly dark and sinister world, delicious tension and suspense, violence so gritty you'll get something in your eye just reading it, and a gorgeously flawed protagonist. Take this one to the checkout counter. Seriously.-Jim Butcher, author of the Dresden Files

Cinematic and vivid, with a provocative glimpse into a larger world. Where's the next one?-Terry Rossio, screenwriter, Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy

Classic dark noir, fresh ideas, and good old-fashioned storytelling.-John Levitt, author of Dog Days

Redemption comes wrapped in a package of mystery and horror that hammers home the old saying ‘Don't do the crime if you can’t do the time' . . . and even then you’d better check the yellow pages for one bad-ass exterminator first.-Rob Thurman, author of Nightlife

A fine novel with some genuinely creepy moments. I enjoyed it immensely and hope we'll see more of Ray Lilly.-Lawrence Watt-Evans, author of the Obsidian Chronicles
