I'm in the midst of conversing with Skyhorse and Start, who acquired Night Shade Books last year. They don't seem terribly inclined to continue the series, but that doesn't mean I'm not stymied as far as what happens next. Sorry to be vague. I'm in limbo on this end, and I'm waiting for things to sort themselves out before I announce what is happening next. (less)

The second in a series, and in many ways, a better book than the first, in my opinion. Where the first book was a whogonnadoit adventure, this one is a political thriller, with main character Markham having to confront the skeletons in his closet and in his heart, while forcing the people around him to do the same.

Mark Teppo starts out the second offering in his Fantasy Noir series with action, and doesn't let up until you both crash panting to the floor in the final pages.

If you like urban fantasy, buy it. If you like magic, buy it. If you like action, buy it. Those copies are for your friends to read, so buy one for yourself and enjoy the ride.
