Every Friday I tell you about a book by an author you really should be reading. This week’s book is:
Taking The Night by J.F. Posthumus
Magic and the Mob don’t usually mix well. But to survive, Selia Lascari has made both work in her favor.
Banished from her hidden island homeland and adopted into a Mob family, Selia has spent nearly a decade learning to live in the “modern” world of technology and doing legitimate business for one of the city’s oldest crime syndicates. Being a part of it all while still feeling very much apart from everything and everyone around her.
When she’s asked to run an errand, she discovers too late that it’s a trap. Alfi Barboni, a would-be suitor, wants revenge on her family and he’ll do anything to get it.
When her adopted father is left for dead in the attempted coup, Selia’s forced to turn to her only other option: the city’s vigilante known as the Sandman. Risking everything to protect her father and save herself, Selia dons a mask –a lot of Kevlar – and begins her search for Alfi… only to discover he’s nothing more than a necromancer’s puppet.
If Selia, with the Sandman’s aid can’t stop the necromancer and end the attempted coup, everything she holds dear will be left in ruin.
