Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, whether it be physically or virtually. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

This has been a pretty rough week for me.  My teenage son came down with a nasty case of the flu, which then spread throughout the family.  Unfortunately, I came down with the worst case in the household, was pretty much in bed for five days and incapable of even reading.  The only bright spot of the time was the new books I got in that I looked forward to reading.

black city saintBlack City Saint by Richard A. Knaak

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Series: Black City Saint #1

Publisher: Pyr (March 1, 2016)

Author Information: Website  | Twitter

Length: 390 pages

For more than sixteen hundred years, Nick Medea has followed and guarded the Gate that keeps the mortal realm and that of Feirie separate, seeking in vain absolution for the fatal errors he made when he slew the dragon. All that while, he has tried and failed to keep the woman he loves from dying over and over.

Yet in the fifty years since the Night the Dragon Breathed over the city of Chicago, the Gate has not only remained fixed, but open to the trespasses of the Wyld, the darkest of the Feiriefolk. Not only does that mean an evil resurrected from Nick’s own past, but the reincarnation of his lost Cleolinda, a reincarnation destined once more to die.

Nick must turn inward to that which he distrusts the most: the Dragon, the beast he slew when he was still only Saint George. He must turn to the monster residing in him, now a part of him…but ever seeking escape.

The gang war brewing between Prohibition bootleggers may be the least of his concerns. If Nick cannot prevent an old evil from opening the way between realms…then not only might Chicago face a fate worse than the Great Fire, but so will the rest of the mortal realm.

  1. Return of Souls is one of those books that seems to… haunt me 😀 these past few days, and since Remic is one of those authors I intend to try out, sooner or later, I guess this book will fall into the “sooner” category. Soon. 🙂
