Idle Ingredients

Matt Wallace., $2.99 e-book (140p) ISBN 978-0-7653-9002-8

After the terrifying events of Pride’s Spell, the Sin du Jour gang (New York–based caterers to the supernatural), and especially Lena Tarr, are still reeling. In fact, it’s been over a month since Lena left the apartment she shared with her friend Darren and took a job at a diner called the Ugly Quesadilla. When Sin du Jour’s head honcho, Bronko Luck, tracks her down and tells her that she and all of the Sin du Jour gang are still in danger, she reluctantly returns. Meanwhile, the Sceadu, a shadow government for the supernatural community, is choosing a new president, and Sin du Jour has been hired to cater an event for one presidential hopeful. When prickly new coordinator Luciana Monrovio steps in and Jett Hollinshead is pushed out, Lena starts noticing the crew acting very strangely around Luciana. It’s time to get back in the game, even if it kills her. This story is darker and a bit more serious than previous installments. Wallace’s imagination is still as wonderfully twisted as ever, and the cliff-hanger ending will have fans eager for more. Agent: DongWon Song, Howard Morhaim Literary. (Feb.)
