Product Details


“All the fun of pulp adventure, filtered through a twenty-first century lens… a hell of a lot of fun.”
– Marie Brennan, author of A Natural History of Dragons

“Dragons of Heaven combines superheroes, romance, ancient mythological China, and does it right.”
 - Cassie Alexander, author of the Edie Spence series

“A tough, witty young woman who inherited her superhero grandfather’s powers barrels through a rollicking Big Trouble in Little China-esque tale filled with magic, monsters and wisecracks. I loved it.”
 - Alex Bledsoe, author of The Hum and the Shiver

“Your Humble Reviewers loved the crazy family relationships which caused no end of problems and mysteries in this book…If you like dark detective or superhero stories then this is the series for you.”
– Bull Spec

“I’m really pleased that Helms’ second book to feature Missy was as entertaining and satisfying as the first…”
– SF Crowsnest

“Infused with wit and humour, filled with a fundamentally open and kindhearted warmth, this is the contemporary speculative fiction at its stylistic best.”
– Bastian’s Book Reviews

“Like the first book, The Conclave of Shadow whetted my appetite for further adventures set in this intriguing mix of genres and worlds.”
– Locus, issue 670

“The story is good and fast-paced, but what added to my enjoyment was the faithful realization of the setting. Helms captures the city of San Francisco, and also the pain-drenched but fascinating island of Alcatraz.”
– Fantasy Literature Review
