September 12, 2001. Four members of the Klasser family are found dead outside Dallas, Texas. In the wake of 9/11, the Klassers’ neighbor, Omar Jones—an American citizen of Arab descent—is convicted of their murder. A month before Jones’ execution, attorney Lije Evans searches for evidence that will prove the man innocent. But Evans’ quest goes…
You’d think that saving the world from demons is supposed to come with justly earned desserts or at least flaky pastries. For Grace Moore, covert summoner/full-time foodie, saving the City of Spokane and earning a promotion is anything but. Her days are now full of paperwork and Grove politics, and her navigation of the new political waters is like a brick in scuba gear.
Then, there’s Grace’s eighteen-year-old apprentice, Robert Lorents. Robert is the most powerful untrained summoner Grace has ever seen, but her promotion means he’s left high and dry to clean up Spokane while she goes to Las Vegas on Grove matters. Robert is understandably annoyed. Yeah, saving the city was okay. Avoiding becoming a giant demon raccoon’s snack and the demon Cythymau’s new battery pack was even better. But he screwed up and failed to save a girl who was trapped in Cythymau’s clutches.
Grace seemed to have forgotten that little problem. And Robert isn’t willing to get to it “sometime.” Besides, what else does an annoyed, mostly-bored, foster kid in Spokane have to do anyway?
