Publisher's Summary

Cassidy Kincaide owns Trifles & Folly, an antique/curio store and high-end pawn shop in Charleston, South Carolina, that is more than what it seems. Dangerous magical and supernatural items sometimes find their way into mortal hands or onto the market, and Cassidy is part of a shadowy Alliance of mortals and mages whose job it is to take those deadly curiosities out of circulation.

Welcome to Trifles & Folly, an antique and curio shop with a dark secret. Proprietor Cassidy Kincaide continues a family tradition begun in 1670 - acquiring and neutralizing dangerous supernatural items. It's the perfect job for Cassidy, whose psychic gift lets her touch an object and know its history. Together with her business partner Sorren, a 500-year-old vampire and former jewel thief, Cassidy makes it her business to get infernal objects off the market.

When mundane antiques suddenly become magically malicious, it's time for Cassidy and Sorren to get rid of these Deadly Curiosities before the bodies start piling up.

In the tradition of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files

Excellent read for people who like realistic fantasy. Memorable characters you'll grow fond of. Warning: it's hard to put down.

great story but over acted

I do love this book. the narrator while good seems to over act in places. it's just my own personal preference.

Good Horror/Urban Fantasy

I really enjoyed the characters and the plot. Though I did think the characters could have made a few intuitive leaps from the information they had, instead of dragging some of the reveal of clues out. I look forward to the next book in the series.
