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.
With her wisecracking partner Rondeau reluctantly in tow, Marla teams up with a "love-talker" whose dangerous erotic spells not even she can resist.
Together they're searching the rapidly transforming streets of Felport for a woman who's become the Typhoid Mary of nightmares, infecting everything - and everyone - she touches with a chaos worse than death itself.BONUS AUDIO: Includes an exclusive introduction written and read by author T.A. Pratt.

T.A. Pratt has a wonderful imagination, Ive just finished the fourth book of this series and I must say, its been one heck of a ride. Great stories, the evolution of the characters was fascinating to watch. The magical world hes created is rich in detail and so interesting! After this book, read Death Reign then Spell Games. This series is the best urban fantasy Ive read, by far.
Dear T.A. Pratt, I love you. I love Marla, and I hope she can bring "you know who" back (no spoilers here!). Please tell me that you are already working on the next book. Please? Pretty please? Did I mention that I love you?
I was put off from the storyline of "Bone Shop" and "Blood Engines" by all the sex and foul language, but this one was much less bothersome, and I liked Genevive a lot. Although I wish you would kill so many good characters, it's annoying. I really liked Ted.
Hard to answer a question like this. How can you rate this against a romance, or any other style of story? Maybe the middle?
I liked the way that Genevive gave Z spiderman- mold superpowers.
Yes. I got my feet wet with the first one and this one was better. I had to drag myself away.
I thought this book was better than the first one and I think that T.A. Pratt has a better grasp of how to write Marla so that she isn't so one dimensional as she was in the start of the first book.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
I love Rondeau! He's funny, really funny, and loyal. Nothing seems to phase him. And, he compliments Marla well.
I love Jessica Almasy! She's one of my favorites. Her voices are distinct and very believable.
Oh the ending of course. Sad sad sad. Loss and betrayal. Sad.
Though this is a good book, it's not as good as the first book, in my opinion.
I flip-flop between business and fiction books to keep me grounded in reality while still keeping my childhood love of fantasy firmly intact.
I loved Bone Shop and Blood Engines, but this one dragged in the middle, which almost made me return it! I'm glad I listened through the middle, though, because I enjoyed the end a lot! I'm just not sure if I want to read another Marla Mason title.
I don't know, I haven't tried it in print.
Perhaps the early Dresden files books - only because they're also written with a lively imagination and plenty of humour.
Jessica Almasy gives each character a unique personality - it is really entertaining to listen to, because it's not just a "different voice", it's changes in pitch, tempo and timing - fantastic.
Gritty, kick-butt, heroine
If Harry Dresden had a female counterpart, Marla Mason would be her.
Jessica Almasy has a good grown up voice, gives Marla a mature tone.
