Cosmically fast-paced and wildly imaginative, this debut novel is a
perfect potion of magic and suspense.
Once a city of enormous wealth and culture, Prague was home to
emperors, alchemists, astronomers, and, as it’s whispered, hell portals. When
music student Sarah Weston lands a summer job at Prague Castle cataloging
Beethoven’s manuscripts, she has no idea how dangerous her life is about to
become. Prague is a threshold, Sarah is warned, and it is
steeped in blood.
Soon after Sarah arrives, strange things begin to happen. She learns
that her mentor, who was working at the castle, may not have committed suicide
after all. Could his cryptic notes be warnings? As Sarah parses his clues about
Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved,” she manages to get arrested, have tantric sex
in a public fountain, and discover a time-warping drug. She also catches the
attention of a four-hundred-year-old dwarf, the handsome Prince Max, and a
powerful US senator with secrets she will do anything to hide.
City of Dark Magic could be called a
rom-com paranormal suspense novel—or it could simply be called one of the most
entertaining novels of the year.
