    Aliyah Tsabo-Dawson: the world's most dangerous eight-year-old girl. Burned by a terrorist's magic, gifted strange powers beyond measure. She's furious that she has to hide her abilities from her friends, her teachers, even her mother - and her temper tantrums can kill. Paul Tsabo: bureaucromancer. Magical drug dealer. Desperate father. He's gone toe to toe with the government's conscription squads of brain-burned Unimancers, and he'll lie to anyone to keep Aliyah out of their hands - whether Aliyah likes it or not.

    Wonderful storytelling

    Ferret did a better job with this book then the first. Hope he writes another in this series.
