From the Author
On New Year's Eve 2000, the stroke of midnight returned magic, both light and dark, to the world.
Discordia Jones missed it.
Struck down at that same instant like a cut-rate Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty mash up, she awakened three years later to a far stranger life, and saddled with psychic abilities.
Working as a private investigator for Arcane Solutions only brings on more strangeness.
At least there aren't talking mice...

I have this rule of only reading the Kindle at the gym and I found myself spending 2-3x as long on the bike so I could read more. When the bikes were taken I even experimented with settings on the treadmill until I could walk and read without tripping and hitting my face on the E-stop.
I have been at a loss for words the past few days because I want to write a review that will do this book-- and the series--justice. I can't. The foreshadowing, the tightly-woven plot and subplots, the magical twists on current events, the fresh takes on old mythical creatures, they merge so well and without any wasted words it's impossible for me to describe without spoilers. Sometimes I like books to have pages of scenery, weather and wardrobe described, but if this series did that it would feel out of pace with Cordi's speed and wit. I'd still say it's "cinematic", but in a pre-Save the Cat Indie sort of way, not a cookie cutter Hollywood "let's see how many SFX we can fit in while you wait for something to happen" sort of way.
And it's funny. So funny!
You don't need to read the first one to understand what's going on here. This case relies heavily on dogs so if pets, mysteries and magic are your things you should check it out.
One thing I really like about this series is that Cordi is always learning something about the different species around her; supernatural and otherwise. And this particular story has a really interesting twist to it that just might alter a reader’s perception of their pets.
A great cast of characters and interesting situations. The author does really well in making us feel Cordi’s emotions and through that her friends actually feel like family. And we meet a new guy that you’ll definitely want to see more of in future stories.
I just wish these books were longer, and edited better.
