Justice is blind. Justine isn’t. Book two in the Saturn's Daughter series, in which Tina Clancy is gifted with the power to dispense justice...for good or evil.
YOU DON’T NEED A LAW DEGREE TO DISPENSE STREET JUSTICE.
Tina Clancy hardly has a chance to celebrate passing the bar exam when an explosion at Acme Chemical sends a noxious pink and green cloud billowing over Baltimore’s radioactive Zone. It is not as if the place was normal to begin with, but as the poisonous fumes overtake the sky, her neighbors start falling comatose—and Acme is plucking them off the streets faster than Tina and her friends can save them.
Just because Tina’s a lawyer now doesn’t mean she’s going to miraculously morph into a respectable, law-abiding citizen. She once accidentally damned her own boyfriend to hell, for heaven’s sake. Now that Max is back—in the body of his evil cousin, a U.S. senator with family ties to Acme—she needs him more than ever.
And what does it mean to be one of Saturn’s daughters? Tina knows she’s obligated to use her powers to save the Zone, no matter the cost, but there’s a real possibility that victory will happen over her dead body.
The Zone is Baltimore's roughest neighborhood, not only because of its lawlessness and poverty but also because of the toxic waste from the Acme chemical plant, which has created magical creatures and given the Zone's inhabitants strange powers. Zone resident Tina Clancy is one of Saturn's daughters, able to damn souls to Hell in the name of justice a power she's not entirely comfortable with. As Tina contends with the latest wave of weirdness from Acme, she's tempted by two potential love interests and wondering whether her rage-fueled powers are inherently evil. As in Boyfriend from Hell, Quaid puts a new and satisfying spin on the paranormal formula. The grit of the Zone is realistically portrayed, and Acme is not only a bastion of mad science but also the Zone's primary employer, making it a more complex villain than readers might expect.
