Working as a Hound-tracing illegal spells back to their casters-has taken its toll on Allison Beckstrom. But even though magic has given her migraines and stolen her recent memory, Allie isn’t about to quit. Then the police’s magic enforcement division asks her to consult on a missing persons case. But what seems to be a straightforward job turns out to be anything but, as Allie finds herself drawn into the underworld of criminals, ghosts, and blood magic.
Magic stirred in me, offering whatever I wanted. With little more than a thought and a gesture or two, I could make magic do anything. So long as I was willing to pay the price… Allison Beckstrom knows better than most that when magic’s involved, nothing’s free. She’s had to pay its price of migraines and forgetfulness while working as a Hound, tracing illegal spells back to their casters. And even though magic has stolen her recent memory—including her history with the man she supposedly fell in love with—Allie isn’t about to give up on Hounding, or the city she cares about. Then the police’s magic enforcement division asks her to consult on what seems to be a straightforward missing persons case. But what began as a way to make rent leads Allie into grave danger when the trail she’s following draws her into the dark underworld of criminals, ghosts, and blood magic. There, Allie discovers it will take more than just magic to survive. “We’re going to be hearing a lot more of Devon Monk.” —New York Times Bestselling Author Patricia Briggs “Monk’s writing is addictive, and the only cure is more, more, more!” —New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Vincent
Devon Monk writes the Allie Beckstrom and Broken Magic urban fantasy series and the Age of Steam steampunk series. She also drinks too much coffee and knits silly things. Monk lives in Oregon with her husband and two sons.
