The Stringer features the buddy duo from We Are Not Good People, blood magicians who are struggling to get by with their cheap magics and wit (such as it is). Action-packed, inventive, and darkly comic.

For blood mages, the twenty-first century means hiding in the shadows, keeping society unaware of their incredible powers. In The Stringer, the power-hungry sort plot quietly to manufacture tragedies bloody enough to give them the gas they need to cast something monumental. Lem and Mags, down-and-out bosom buddies to the end, try to be good, bleeding nobody but themselves, skating by on small Cantrips, cons, and charms.

So when the siren song of easy money comes their way in the form of helping out a friend, clearly no good will come of it. Blood mages are not good people. And neither are Stringers—alien intelligences that can take over a body and run it ragged. Stringers: they aren’t subtle, aren’t content to skulk in the shadows, and aren’t a houseguest anyone wants. Lem is about to learn what a possession hangover feels like—if Mags and his more tentative allies can figure out how to stop the demon without killing him.

This ebook also contains an excerpt of We Are Not Good People.  


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
