After years fighting in the Goblinblood Wars, the dwarven warrior Akina is returning home, accompanied by Ondorum, her silent companion of living stone. Yet what she finds is far from what she remembers: a disgraced brother, an obsessive suitor, and a missing mother. When her brother is kidnapped by subterranean enemies, Akina and Ondorum must venture below, into danger as old as the stones themselves.
Clean freak college student Dani Hashelheim never imagined she'd discover her latent magical ability in, of all places, a bathroom. But when she ducks into the ladies' room at the library, she's put in the crossfire between an elderly janitor and a ravenous muck-monster that emerges from the sink. Dani's previously unknown power manifests in self-defense, and she floods and burns down the library - at the same time.
"Beware the monster lurking in the toilet!"
After surviving employee orientation without destroying the city with her new powers, Dani is finally a bonafide Cleaner. Raring to get to work and save the world from corruption, she's given the critical assignment of...full-time tools training. After all, what good are magic mops or squeegees if she doesn't know how to properly wield them against scum? For now, she's stuck in sparring matches where her pride is getting as bruised as her body.
"Great second book!"
