Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles comes book two of an “action-packed, enchantingly fun” (Booklist) spin-off series, as an eccentric master of rare magic solves a supernatural mystery Down Under!

There’s only one Al MacBharrais: Though other Scotsmen may have dramatic mustaches and a taste for fancy cocktails, Al also has a unique talent. He’s a master of ink and sigil magic. In his gifted hands, paper and pen can work wondrous spells. 

But Al isn’t quite alone: He is part of a global network of sigil agents who use their powers to protect the world from mischievous gods and strange monsters. So when a fellow agent disappears under sinister circumstances in Australia, Al leaves behind the cozy pubs and cafes of Glasgow and travels to the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria to solve the mystery.

The trail to his colleague begins to pile up with bodies at alarming speed, so Al is grateful his friends have come to help—especially Nadia, his accountant who moonlights as a pit fighter. Together with a whisky-loving hobgoblin known as Buck Foi and the ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan, along with his dogs, Oberon and Starbuck, Al and Nadia will face down the wildest wonders Australia—and the supernatural world—can throw at them, and confront a legendary monster not seen in centuries.

Engaging and joyous.

I basically binged these books like a tv series I couldn’t put down. The story grabs you in the first book and never lets you go. The magic style that is described is fascinating and leaves me with nothing but curiosity I cannot wait to read about Al and bucks next adventure.

Kevin Hearne leaves you cackling

The last time I laughed this much at a book was when I read the first book in this series, Ink & Sigil. This one has a lot more action, and an even crazier new mystery that I hope we get to the bottom of and aren't just left hanging. The original mystery of who/what cursed Al MacBharrais is still unsolved, but I'm hopeful that by the end of the series we will learn at least why it happened. All of the characters were still incredibly nutty and we got to see a lot more of Atticus and his show stealing dogs Oberon and Starbuck. If Kevin Hearne just wrote books about Oberon and Starbuck alone I would read those all the time! Highly recommended!
