Yesterday was the book birthday for Diana Pharaoh Francis’s SHADOW CITY, the third book in her amazing Horngate Witches series for Pocket. Before I post the short blurb for the book below, I have to share a couple of my very favorite quotes for this series:
“Diana Pharaoh Francis is a wicked, wicked woman… My heart wept for the characters, and I’m foaming at the mouth at the chance to see what happens next.” — Bitten by Books
“This is urban fantasy with the volume set on high, rattling the windows and provoking the neighbors.” —The Green Man Review
The world is falling apart. The magical apocalypse has come. Now is the time to guard the covenstead against both raiders and refugees. But Max has been stolen by a powerful demi-god who is determined to force her to find a way to use a magical power she never knew she had—even if it kills her. Meanwhile, back in Horngate, a Fury is birthing. When the creature breaks free of the fragile bonds that enclose her, her rage will scour the covenstead from the earth.
Max finds herself in the Shadow City, a place of mysteries and magic, where she must battle for her freedom or become a slave to creatures of dreadful greed and power. Back in Horngate, Alexander must swallow his anger and pride if he hopes to defeat the Fury, a creature that no one has ever successfully fought before.
In the end, it will be courage, friendship, faith and loyalty that win the day. Or else so one will live to see tomorrow.
