Isaac is called in to investigate the killing, along with Porter psychiatrist Nidhi Shah and their dryad bodyguard and lover, Lena Greenwood. Born decades ago from the pages of a pulp fantasy novel, Lena was created to be the ultimate fantasy woman, strong and deadly, but shaped by the needs and desires of her companions. But their plan could unleash a far darker evil….
Reading was tricky with only one working hand, but I soon held the Ring of Gyges. I slipped the ring onto my finger and vanished.
Nevertheless, as I have said in many posts regarding the issue of censorship, the implications were necessary. Good job! This is a beautiful collection that is one gorgeous story after another. As somebody who grew up in a province and having experienced looking at stars almost every night, and listening to fiction stories by …more Childhood. The book has been called charming, funny, quirky, profound, and yes, it is all those things.
In theory, true invisibility should have left me blind. Fortunately, libriomancy obeyed belief over physics, and few modern-day readers thought about invisibility on a cellular level. I ran back to Christina Quinney and took a lipstick from her purse, then hurried toward the garden. Once there, I dropped behind the overturned bench.
The seat and back were slabs of polished black granite. The engraving along the back read, In memory of Annette Butler.
Had the truck hit this thing head-on, it probably would have broken both the bench and the truck, but it looked like they had struck it at an angle. I added a pair of angry eyebrows as well, along with uneven ears to either side.
I put the lipstick away and pulled out the pepper box. Creating the powder of life from The Marvelous Land of Oz had been the easy part. The challenge was getting through the ritual to use it.
