The Wayward Mage

Sara Hanover. DAW, $17 trade paper (336p) ISBN 978-0-7564-1633-1
Hanover continues her Wayward Mages urban fantasy series with a suspenseful third installment (after The New Improved Sorceress). Tessa Andrews is new to the world of wizards, demons, and the supernatural when she is abandoned by her mentor, a phoenix wizard, and must forge ahead alone. She’s determined to save her father—who’s stuck in a ghostly form after a magical accident and hovering on the brink of fading away forever—but struggles to control her fledgling magical abilities. Meanwhile, she must work to keep the threads of her normal life and her magical life separate. This task becomes more difficult when her academic mother writes a dissertation about magic that threatens to expose the paranormal world. Now Tessa must summon all of her powers to keep from losing everything she holds dear. Hanover writes with panache, maintaining a delightful blend of humor and suspense throughout, and new readers and returning fans alike will be drawn in by Tessa’s magnetism and quick wit. This is a treat. (June)
