Necromancer Eric Carter returns in this noir urban fantasy in which an unspeakable cataclysm has turned the City of Angels into the city of the dead. And there are more of the dead on their way
In his attempt to bely the wrath of the ancient Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, Carter unknowingly lit the fuse on what is now known as Los Angeles Firestorm. The massive explosion and its toxic aftermath killed over 100,000 people, sparking mass riots and turning the area into a kill zone. The city is slowly healing its shattered heart, but for Carter the guilt is crushing his soul.
But soon enough, the situation threatens to get even worse. There are ghosts gatheringmore than is safe. Because if the ghosts somehow works their way through the barrier separating them from the world, they have only one way to survive: feed off the living. And Carter realizes that the ghosts aren't acting on their own.
Someone is calling to them. A fellow mage looking for more power is using the ghosts as weapons against anyone who stands against them. And unfortunately, that's what Carter needs to do.
Because if any more people die from Carter's actions, he might just willingly join them
Praise for the Eric Carter series:
"Blackmoore employs Chandleresque prose to smoothly incorporate a hard-boiled sense of urban despair into a paranormal plot, with occasional leavening provided by smart-aleck humor." Publishers Weekly on Dead Things
"In a world where Aztec Mythology, dark magic and grim reality blend together, nothing is what it appears to be... Best of all, Blackmoore's chillingly good storytelling skills ensures that fans will enjoy every step of this adrenaline fueled journey." RT Book Reviews (Top Pick) on Broken Souls
"This series is so fucking good. Blackmoore can't write these books fast enough to suit me. BROKEN SOULS is hyper-caffeinated, turbo-bloody face-stomping fun. This is the L.A-noir urban fantasy you've been looking for." Kevin Hearne, Author of The Iron Druid Chronicles
"Carter's wry voice is amusing as ever, but the grief he carries is palpable, adding depth and a sense of desperation to this action-packed adventure. Readers will be eager for more after this thrilling, emotionally fraught installment." Publishers Weekly on Ghost Money, Starred Review
