Here are the books I picked up this week:
Tying the Knot by E.C. Bell –
Paper & Blood by Kevin Hearne –
From theÂ New York TimesÂ bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles comes book two ofÂ anÂ â€œaction-packed, enchantingly funâ€ (Booklist)Â spin-off series, as an eccentric master of rareÂ magicÂ solves a supernatural mystery Down Under!
Thereâ€™s only one Al MacBharrais: Though other Scotsmen may have dramatic mustaches and a taste for fancy cocktails, Al also has a unique talent. Heâ€™s a master of ink and sigil magic. In his gifted hands, paper and pen can work wondrous spells.
But Al isnâ€™t quite alone: He is part of a global network of sigil agents who use their powers to protect the world from mischievous gods and strange monsters. So when a fellow agent disappears under sinister circumstances in Australia, Al leaves behind the cozy pubs and cafes of Glasgow and travels to the Dandenong Ranges in Victoria to solve the mystery.
The trail to his colleague begins to pile up with bodies at alarming speed, so Al is grateful his friends have come to helpâ€”especially Nadia, his accountant who moonlights as a pit fighter. Together with a whisky-loving hobgoblin known as Buck Foi and the ancient Druid Atticus Oâ€™Sullivan, along with his dogs, Oberon and Starbuck, Al and Nadia will face down the wildest wonders Australiaâ€”and the supernatural worldâ€”can throw at them, and confront a legendary monster not seen in centuries.
