What do you do when the supernatural world crashes—suddenly, violently, devastatingly—into yours? If you are Jill Hamilton, you drop out of UC Santa Cruz, use your inherited savings to hire a couple monster hunters as bodyguards, get in your dead boyfriend’s truck, and you go out and study it. Of course. Even if your bodyguards tell you some things are better left un-studied. Even if unicorns are real and bloodthirsty. Even if summoning old, forgotten gods has detrimental effects on the state of reality. Because beyond killing monsters and helping people, Jill Hamilton wants to understand why the world she thought she knew is actually so much deeper, darker, and downright magical than it has any right to be.
Welcome to the world of Driving Arcana, where even the painfully boring and mundane aspects of everyday life are underlaid by a subtle current of inexplicable magic, and three women are on a mission to find out how it all works. Even if two of them would really rather not.
Wheel 2 of Driving Arcana, Paving the Road to Hell follows Wheel 1, By Moon and Star. It collects all the stories from Rotations Four, Five and Six, and adds “The Five Bodies of Tamerlain Pierce” at the end, which serves as a link between this Wheel and the next.
