t's the end of the world as we know it...

The war on magic is here, and Mistress of the House of Swords Sara Wilde has done everything she can to prepare. The Arcana Council has recalled its most powerful members to hold the line, and the Houses of Magic are frantically strengthening their defenses. Then the first volley hits: a plague of demons freed to ravage the earth. Scrambling, Sara discovers that the war will be fought not on one front, but three--while new threats emerge at a breakneck pace.

All the magic in the world may not be enough to save it.

From an ancient coven in Chicago to the sunbaked streets of Vegas to the frozen ice fields of Antarctica, Sara rallies her closest friends and fiercest enemies to protect the earth from the gods and monsters raining down from the dark side of the veil. To succeed, Sara must confront the truths she's been avoiding her whole life, and take on forces that have kept the Connecteds powerless for far too long. But is she willing to make the ultimate sacrifice?

When it comes to Armageddon, where there's smoke there's always Wilde Fire.

Bobby Joe Looney and Deveraux LeDux are retired ‘herb’ smugglers who made a considerable fortune during their working days. Bobby Joe possesses second sight, a gift passed down from the Choctaw side of his blood line. He is dark of eye and skin, mercurial and intense. Dev is possessed of preternatural physical strength, violet of eye and light of skin, laid-back and gentle - unless crossed. Along with Jack Lee, with whom they have a long friendship from their days at the University of Georgia, they are both handy in a tight spot. Bobby Joe is the one who comes up with the idea of going to Brazil, and who dubs himself and Dev “dinosaurs” and Brazil a fitting “heaven” for their final retirement. Behind it is the fact that he has discovered he has relatives there. They are descendants of a group called ‘confederados’, who left for Brazil at the end of the Civil War rather than surrender. Upon meeting them, his family reunion turns out to be an event that shakes his world. Meanwhile, Jack Lee barely escapes with his life when the law raids his cabin. Warrants have been issued relating to the time he investigated the murder of his old partner in the ‘herb’ Trade, and Jack is forced to go on the run. Bobby Joe and Dev invite him to join them in Brazil, where they have been set up in style by another old friend. He is a former exchange student who also attended UGA, and who presents the public persona of a successful businessman and political fixer, but is in reality something else altogether. Jack makes it to Brazil, but with the law on his trail. The dramatic tension in this novel derives from the collision of these outlaws and the extra-legal U.S. agents that are sent to deal with them, and from the wild card involvement of a renegade agent with his own agenda: the settling of scores with Bobby Joe and Dev, whom he considers to be the source of his very special misery. The ‘outlaws’ survive to fight another day, but they have been bloodied, and storm clouds are gathering on the horizon. The quiet retirement that Bobby Joe and Dev had hoped for seems to be elusive, and Jack’s desire for a quiet place to meditate seems to be out of reach.
After a violent encounter with the Feds, retired ‘herb’ smugglers Bobby Joe (of Choctaw descent), Dev (possessing preternatural strength), and Jack Lee, move up to a mountain estate in Visconde de Maua? in Brazil. They each have women in their lives: Bobby Joe has a young son with an old love from the States, Dev has settled with a Brazilian lady, and Jack is in a celibate marriage with an old love who allows him space to pursue his spiritual practice. On the surface, all seems well, but forces are building from two different directions that could combine into a deadly pincer movement. Joa~o Silva, an old Brazilian friend from their days at the University of Georgia, visits with news of the systematic murdering of street children all over Brazil. He tells them he is going to try to stop it, and speaks of another old friend who oversees a ‘herb’ plantation in Bahia. He breaks out samples and speaks of the millions of dollars he will need to defend the street children. Bobby Joe rolls a fat joint and then stuns his friends with an announcement. He proposes they come out of retirement to smuggle one last load to help Joa~o's cause. This sets in train a series of events with mortal consequences. A load is successfully smuggled into the United States, and Joa~o is given the money. However, enemies emerge and they find common interest with the extra-legal U.S. agents who are in pursuit of the trio. A combined force launches a raid on the estate, but it has nothing to do with warrants, or arrests. Jack Lee is not present when it occurs at dawn one day, but hears the helicopters and afterwards discovers all of his friends and loved ones shot dead, except for Bobby Joe’s son. He goes on the hunt and ultimately finds and kills the one who led the raid, and in the process uncovers secrets that leave him reeling. After securing Bobby Joe’s son into the custody of Joa~o’s lifetime love, he takes passage on a tramp freighter bound for India. Once again he is alone, bereft, and with blood on his hands, with the ringing words of his guru in his ears, spoken some twenty years before and now seemingly bitterly prophetic and utterly accurate.
