We return to Felport to follow Marla Mason, mage, as she tries to track down Genevieve Kelley before she destroys the city. Gen was accidentally – or not – awakened from the Blackwing Institute (for the insane sorcerers) and is now loose and roaming about the city and her own world – or, well, reality – reweaving the real world and taking people and things with her. Orange trees and snow flakes are appearing where high rises used to be, and this is disconcerting to the people nearby, to say the least. Marla decides that she must return Gen to Blackwing at the very least – but as incidents seem to be increasing, will Marla have to resort to murder to save her city and herself? From official release/information:
Book Description: The bad girl of the magical underworld is back and badder than ever. Someone wants Marla Mason dead. Usually that's not news. As chief sorcerer of Felport, someone always wants her dead. But this time she's the target of a renegade assassin who specializes in killing his victims over days, months, or even years. Not to mention a mysterious knife-wielding killer in black who pops up in the most unexpected places. To make matters worse, an inmate has broken out of the Blackwing Institute for criminally insane sorcerers—a troubled psychic who can literally reweave the fabric of reality to match her own traumatic past.
