Sharon Li: apprentice shaman and community support officer for the magically inclined.
It wasn't the career Sharon had in mind, but she's getting used to running Magicals Anonymous and learning how to Be One With The City.
When the Midnight Mayor goes missing, leaving only a suspiciously innocent-looking umbrella behind him, Sharon finds herself promoted. Her first task: find the Midnight Mayor. The only clues she has are a city dryad's cryptic message of doom and several pairs of abandoned shoes . . .
Suddenly, Sharon's job feels a whole lot harder.
Shaman Sharon Li's adventures continue among the magical beings of modern-day London in this spell-binding sequel to Stray Souls.
Earnest and well-meaning Sharon Li is drafted as the replacement for Matthew Swift, London's Midnight Mayor, when he vanishes in Griffin's wonderful second Magicals Anonymous novel (after Stray Souls). Assisted by dogsbody Rhys, Sharon social worker, journeyman shaman, and chief administrator for a support group for the supernaturally perplexed must navigate the convoluted world of the city's supernatural community. Her competence leads only to more responsibility as success in the search for the mayor sticks Sharon with the even more daunting task of appeasing an angry god wandering the streets. Demon-strating a laudable respect for the rule of law, armed with good intentions and a quick and cunning mind, the firmly determined Sharon is often out of her depth but always willing to step up. This utterly charming protagonist easily elevates Griffin's second magical London series above the urban fantasy crowd.
