Second books are always a little bit of a gamble, and if it’s a second books in a trilogy double that. So I started DANGEROUS CALLING with a little trepidation but hopes for the best. I’m pleased to say that it more than met my expectations. In fact, it exceeded them.
The Prospero’s War series inhabits a world where magic permeates the landscape of chemistry and pharmacology.
