Living in a city of chrome, a mother frozen as time within the city and the ultimate demon for a father, Daphne’s only light is her older half-brother, Obie. When he disappears, she journeys to Earth to find Truman, a boy her brother once helped. In a world she has little understanding of (except from movies and stories of her older sisters, demons who prey on the weak); Daphne must fight a force that wants to eradicate demons from Earth and her feelings for Truman. Feelings that could lead them either back to Hell…or possibly salvation. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Jennifer Strange is fifteen and running one of the last Magic-for-Hire companies. Magicians who once had the ears of kings, the respect of the kingdom are now reduced to hiring out as “magical plumbers,” or worse, using their magic rugs to deliver take-out and transplant organs (and hopefully don’t get the two mixed up). But when Jennifer learns of the prophecy that predicts the death of the very last dragon she has no idea what she is now in for! Trying to deal with clients who won’t pay, truant officers and cranky witches who would sooner turn you into a newt than be nice to you are the least of her worries! Funny take on nature vs. man and the pains and tribulations of growing up. First in a new series.~ Review by Jeanette
