    It was not common to awaken in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood. At least Maria Arena had never experienced it. She had no memory of how she died. That was also new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died. Maria's vat was in the front of six vats, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it could awaken. And Maria wasn't the only one to die recently....

    Though Han Solo has thrilled Star Wars fans for decades, the notorious wisecracking scoundrel was chasing adventure and dodging trouble long before he walked into the cantina at Mos Eisley spaceport. Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as long as he’s trapped in a life of poverty and crime - and under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her brutal street gang - reaching the distant stars seems impossible.

    The team saves on flight costs as the newest mystery happens around the corner. A tip from a local antiquarian doesn't make it to the team in time, and they are left with a once-bookstore-now-rubble pile, a missing magical tome, and very few clues beyond a helpful tour guide (one might even say too helpful). Tracking the missing book to a luxury yacht, the team gets less of the high-end boating experience and more of the demon-on-the-loose nightmare.

    Weather alert: Tornado-eating titans on the loose in Oklahoma. There might not be much upon the open, wind-swept plains of Oklahoma - but magic, like life, finds a way to thrive nevertheless. In this week's episode, the team is literally blown away when they touch down in a tiny country town, utterly destroyed by horrifying monsters the locals call Tornado Eaters. The town is past saving, but the threat remains - it will take all the society can throw at them, and even that might not be enough.

    From spin class to a Matrix marathon to saving Rome in the nick of time, it's all in a day off for Grace and Sal in urban fantasy's new hit episodic series. It's Grace's one-day-off-a-year, and nothing will stop her from enjoying every last second of it: not Sal's troubling sleepwalking, not the mysterious tour guide, Aaron, and not even the magical artifact spreading a time-slowing bubble across Rome. The team's troubles may never stop - but sometimes, you have to make time for a spin class.

    When a mysterious invite arrives in the mail and Father Menchu responds by whisking Sal off to Lichtenstein, the former cop is left on very new ground as she gets more than a glimpse at the broader world of magic users. Unfortunately, they are immediately confronted by a wealthy businessman who is less upset about them blowing up his boat two episodes ago than he is about them stealing his (sludge-demon releasing) book.

    NYPD Detective Sal Brooks is no rookie - but even the most hardened cop would think twice when they see their brother open a book and become...well...something entirely not their brother. When her attempts to solve the case cross paths with a mysterious team led by a priest, she starts to realize that the world is far more than what is seems, and, just maybe, magic is real - and hungry.
