Death has come calling, and one woman

has what he wants most of all...

As chief sorcerer of Felport, Marla Mason thought shed faced every kind of evil the magical world had to offer. But shes never faced a killer like this. Hes dark, glib, handsome as the devil—and exactly who he says he is. Death—in the flesh. Hes arrived in Felport with a posse composed of a half-insane necromancer and the reanimated corpse of John Wilkes Booth, and he isnt leaving until he gets what he came for. Only Marla is crazy enough to tell Death to go back to Hell.

With the Founders Ball just around the bend, drawing together the brightest, meanest, and most dangerous of Felports magical elite, the last thing Marla needs is all-out war with the King of the Underworld, but thats exactly what shes got. As the battle lines are drawn, she can count on her hedonistic, body-hopping partner Rondeau…but how many of her old allies will stand by her side when facing the ultimate adversary? To save her city, Marla will have to find a way to cheat Death…literally.

Review:

"The complex, funny and powerful third entry in Pratt's urban fantasy series (after 2008's Poison Sleep) pits kick-ass sorceress Marla Mason, the guardian of East Coast metropolis Felport, against the newly reincarnated king of the underworld, a handsome and lusty fellow who calls himself Walking Death. He invades her territory in human guise and demands her prized artifact, a magical dagger that symbolizes her office and can cut through anything as long as its rightful owner wields it. When she refuses and Walking Death discovers that the weapon can't be seized by force, he exiles her and takes over the city. While a few unpredictable allies start an underground resistance, Marla turns the tables on her enemy by launching her own invasion of Hell. Pratt's writing is wildly imaginative, with roller-coaster pacing and startling twists galore." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

The third Marla Mason book by T. A. Ptatt is every bit as good as the first two. Its urban fantasy with attitude! Its a good paced, action filled, butt kicking, in your face good read!
