An anthology celebrating the witches and sorcerers of epic fantasy - featuring stories by George R. R. Martin, Scott Lynch, Megan Lindholm and many more! Hot on the heels of Gardner Dozois' (Rogues, Old Venus) acclaimed anthology The Book of Swords comes this companion volume devoted to magic. How could it be otherwise? For every Frodo, there is a Gandalf...and a Saruman. For every Dorothy, a Glinda...and a Wicked Witch of the West. What would Harry Potter be without Albus Dumbledore...and Severus Snape?
Luna’s mother is fading away, the once brilliant woman regressing to an infantile state. The result of a forced breeding program to rapidly expand the wolf pack, Luna’s mom became the victim of the pack’s alpha, Raymond. Now Raymond has been defeated, but the results of his program linger. Luna’s magician mate offers scant hope for recovering her memories. Only someone who has known her since childhood could guide her to restoring her memories.
Luna White is a runaway, a lone werewolf running from her home and pack and her Alpha's obsession with using her to expand the pack; a plan that would have devastating consequences for Luna. She runs to Tokyo, where American werewolf packs are unknown. With a big personality and ego to match; she lands in Tokyo with a splash. Mason Carter is a magician. He traveled from America and settled in Tokyo. He doesn’t care for werewolves; their lack of control runs against the principles of magic.
Two Titans, formerly imprisoned by Molly's family, now walk the mortal realm. The vengeful ancient Nether, finally freed from her prison, longs for revenge against those who decided her fate. And this time, Molly just might not be enough to fight them all, despite having everything to lose.
What do you do when your most dangerous foe is the one living inside you? When Molly Brooks fought her way back to Detroit after her trials in the Nether, she came back changed. The life she thought she had, the one thing that helped keep her sane, was gone. She feels wrong in her own skin, scared. And her powers...well. They're just not working the way they're supposed to. She doesn't have a whole lot of time to wallow, though.
Molly Brooks has never been one to shy away from a fight, to hide from what needs to be done to protect the innocent. Even when it ends up costing her everything. Molly was beginning to have the type of life she'd only ever dreamed of: friends, family, rewarding work. Respect. Love.
Molly Brooks has earned her reputation: an Angel to the humans she's saved, a nightmare to the supernaturals who cross her. She is the last and only line of defense between the innocents in her city and those who hunt them. She is feared. Loved. A legend in the making.
Molly Brooks is a telepathic vigilante with a few secrets and a mysterious past. Determined to make something of her bizarre powers, she devotes herself to saving those who need her most. One night, she's followed by a powerful being in a pickup truck, and her world will never be the same. Finding herself thrust into a world full of supernatural beings she could have only imagined, Molly learns how powerful she really is, and how much she stands to lose.
