Catherine Littlefield was raised in a seaside New England town haunted by whispers of arcane lore that remained tantalizingly out of reach to a daughter of well-to-do Baptists. But when her studies at Barnard College in New York lead to an encounter with a secret society, she is offered access to the knowledge she has always sought...if she can pass a test.

THE SPECTRA FILES books have all been a pleasure to read. Now with SMOKE & DAGGER, we get a peek behind the scenes at the beginning of it all. What fun!

In New York City, feeling far from her seaside home in Massachusetts, Catherine Littlefield haunts the local museums when she's not studying for her college courses. She especially likes to sit and gaze at a certain meteorite. It gives off some kind of...signal, a kind of...hum, which she can actually feel. She notices an elderly gentl

Prequel to the author's Spectra Files trilogy, but a little brief and sketchy. Like that series, reminds me of Tim Powers in the way that he believably weaves his fantasy (Lovecraftian in his case) into real history: here, Jack Parsons as well as the Egyptian obelisk in New York's Central Park and the Tomanowos meteorite in the American Museum of Natural History..

Following up on the success of the SPECTRA FILES novels, Wynne penned this present novella to explore the back story of heroine Becca Phillips’ occultist grandmother, Catherine Littlefield, who is the heroine of this story. Here, returning readers will be immersed in the history of the trilogy they enjoyed, while new readers will find a fast-paced introduction into Wynne’s Lovecraftian universe.

Clocking in at 155 pages, this is a quick read. It moves briskly from scene to scene through the use

Smoke & Dagger also provides us with another great perspective in the form of LeBlanc and Whittaker, two agents of SPEAR (a predecessor to SPECTRA) who are keeping tabs on Parson’s bizarre activities. Once Catherine’s mission becomes intertwined with theirs, things really kick into high gear. It takes a little while, though. Smoke & Dagger is definitely a slow burn, but one filled with enough intrigue and dread to keep the pages turning and an extra light on in the house.
