Danny Hendrickson — ex-cop turned PI — and his partner Ellen could be any low-rent private investigators trying to make a difference, and a living, in New York City.
Except Danny’s father was a faun, and Ellen is a storm-seer.
Which means that they bridge the line between human and fatae, between Talent and Null — and specialize in helping people who fall into the dangers between…
In “An Interrupted Cry,” a blackout hits New York City. Talent — cut off from the current that fuels their abilities — are at a disadvantage. Already reeling from one of her visions, Ellen discovers that her partner/mentor, Danny Hendrickson, has gone missing, leaving a violent scene behind…
…and the city is in the dark about what’s coming, in more ways than one.
I seem to have a fan at the Peabody Institute Library:
"Silver on the Road: I’ve mentioned this book before in a different context, but, having just finished it myself, I can say that this book is absolutely worth your time, whether you were (are) a fan of the Oregon Trail, or a fan of magic in literature, or both..... Laura Anne Gilman has a remarkable talent for crafting a setting–I genuinely felt the dust of the trail on my skin while reading. Best of all, because none of the characters are fully aware of what is going on, the reader is kept somewhat in the dark, as well. Thus, though the pace of this book isn’t rapid-fire, the compulsion to keep reading, to explore, and to understand just what Isabelle is meant to do on her journey, is almost irresistible. I loved that, even in her darkest moments, Isabelle remained the strong, capable, and incredibly determined heroine that she was, and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next installment of this series, due out in October."
Later this month I will be wending my way to Atlanta to be a Featured Guest at AnachroCon, which I am seriously jazzed about. Looking over my schedule, you'll probably be able to guess why. :-)
If you're attending, or just hanging around town wondering what to do that weekend, I'd love to see you guys!
(and, as promised (threatened?) on Twitter, if I see anyone cosplaying Isobel or Gabriel, I will probably burst out in tears and/or add you to the acknowledgements of the new book. If anyone's cosplaying Flatfoot, I will adore you forever.)
