"Diana Pharaoh Francis delivers a downright terrific read." --Devon Monk, nationally Bestselling Author of Hell Bent on Trace of Magic

"A vividly written world of magic and kick-ass action." --D. B. Reynolds, author of the Vampires in America Series

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
And a pound of flesh.

Magical tracking expert Riley Hollis is on a mission to save five teenagers lost inside a mountain. But nothing is what it seems, and soon Riley finds herself bruised, bloodied, and embroiled in a battle to bring down a sadistic criminal dealing in human souls and the darkest of magics.

Her only hope may be to swallow her pride and ask for help from her not-quite-ex-boyfriend and his notorious brother--Tyet criminal boss, Gregg Touray. Even that may not be enough to protect her. Something has gone very wrong in the trace dimension and in Riley's head.

If she doesn't figure out how to handle the past, the present, the trace, and the bad guys, the road to hell is going to look like a great alternative.

Diana Pharaoh Francis is the acclaimed author of a dozen novels of fantasy and urban fantasy. Her books have been nominated for the Mary Roberts Rinehart Award and RT's Best Urban Fantasy. Edge of Dreams is the second in her exciting new urban fantasy series--The Diamond City Magic novels.

They’re smart, sexy, and supernatural. They’re the men and women of the Otherworld—a realm of witches, ghosts, and werewolves who live unseen among us. Only now a reckless killer has torn down the wall, trapping one very human woman in the supernatural cross fire.

Robyn Peltier moved to Los Angeles after her young husband’s sudden death, trying to put some distance between herself and her memories. Though she’s still grieving, the challenges of her new life as the PR consultant to Portia Kane—the world’s most famous celebutante wannabe—can sometimes be amusing, even distracting. But when her client is gunned down in the back room of a nightclub, Robyn is suddenly on the run as the prime suspect in the murder. And as more bodies pile up around her, it seems like only Hope Adams, Robyn’s best friend, and Hope’s somewhat spooky boyfriend Karl are on Robyn’s side. Hope Adams follows the kinds of stories whose headlines scream from supermarket checkout lines. But the difference is that Hope’s stories are even weirder—and they’re all true. Though determined to help Robyn, Hope knows it’s only a matter of time before her friend is caught. But it’s not the police Hope is worried about. For Robyn has gotten herself in the middle of a turf war between two powerful Otherworld cabals who’ll spill any amount of blood—human and inhuman—to protect what they consider theirs for all eternity. And the only way Hope can keep her friend alive is by letting her enter a world she’s safer knowing nothing about.
The healer Reisil and her goshawk companion must work with wizards—who were once enemies—in this tale filled with “likable characters and plenty of action” (Locus).

One year after the events of Path of Fate, in which the healer Reisil joined the ranks of the guardian and defenders, the ahalad-kaaslane, the young journeywoman feels disillusioned. Her fellow ahalad-kaaslane are fearful of her, and she does not fit in with the magilanes either—those priests and priestesses who, like her, share a telepathic bond with predator birds.
 
To make matters worse, the blessed Lady Amiya, the goddess of Kodu Riik, whom Reisil serves, seems to have abandoned her people. Deathly plagues, drought, and famine ravage the country; mysterious creatures attack people in the mountains; and the ruling lisand has gone into seclusion.
 
Reisil tries to help her countrymen, but is horrified to find that she has lost her ability to heal. When she catches wind of a group of mysterious ambassadors who are visiting the royal family in secret, she fears they have an evil agenda. Without power, and with only the companionship of her intelligent but enigmatic goshawk, Saljane, Reisil is determined to figure out what is truly ailing the land. She soon realizes that she must seek out the very wizards she once fought against in order to defeat the plague—and to do so, she must also come to terms with the destructive force within herself.
 
For lovers of strong female characters and compelling animal companions, Path of Honor is the suspenseful second installment of an emotionally gripping fantasy series, replete with a sinister plot, dark magic, and mystery lurking at every turn.
