Mixing mystery, magic, humor, and heart-pounding action, The Sentinels is sure to delight fans of The Dresden Files and The Iron Druid Chronicles who may just find a new favorite hero in Rune Russell.
If I've learned one thing, it's not to play with fire—magical or otherwise.
The first time I used my power, I wound up burning down a mansion. The second time, an inter-dimensional elemental possessed my friend Jo. Now, with a sorcerer and a gang of werebeasts intent on ensuring that Jo's soul is consumed, I'll have to use my magic once more. Well, I guess third time's the charm, right?
I recommend not falling in love with your would-be executioner. Of course, I don’t necessarily practice what I preach.
I have to figure out why several orphans have been possessed by elementals and stop shifter criminals who want to destroy the city’s prison before it’s even built. But my worst problem is that Sash, equal parts beautiful and deadly, is immune to my goofy charm and appears determined to carry out her bloody assignment. I fear I’m going to find out how much loves hurts.
I’m not a coward—it’s just not everyone is meant to be a hero.
My fire abilities provide great power, but they also mean I’m a danger to those close to me and to the world. Hard-won battles are always been accompanied by dire consequences. Now, the supernatural war has broken out of the underworld and into broad daylight. Fire-wielding terrorists dominate the news, a specialized police force is imprisoning supernaturals without trial, and the kidnapping of the mayor has brought the entire city to boiling point.
But sometimes the only way to win is not to play.
