Karyn and her crew specialize in relieving folks of magical items for interested parties. It is the best way for them to make large sums of money. Each member of the crew has their own reasons for the work they do. Karyn needs the money for a very expensive drug that keeps her from seeing too much of the future. It is the only thing that keeps her sane. Then a very rich and powerful man comes calling, needing their services. It is an offer they can’t refuse, even though they know they should, for when things sound too good to be true they usually are. When all hell literally breaks loose, will they make it out alive?
This was an unusual and intriguing read in the realm of urban fantasy. Dark and gritty, this urban fantasy slowly introduces the characters and carefully starts to reveal them. Karyn and her crew live on the edge of poverty and trouble dogs their every step. I came to care about them, together they were a family. No one is innocent, but that is what made it so good. Flawed, imperfect and so relatable, I am so glad I took a chance on this book. I see great things in store for Jamie Schultz. 4 stars for Premonitions!
TWO MILLION DOLLARS...
It’s the kind of score Karyn Ames has always dreamed of? enough to set her crew up pretty well and, more important, enough to keep her safely stocked on a very rare, very expensive black market drug. Without it, Karyn hallucinates slices of the future until they totally overwhelm her, leaving her unable to distinguish the present from the mess of certainties and possibilities yet to come.
The client behind the heist is Enoch Sobell, a notorious crime lord with a reputation for being ruthless and exacting?and a purported practitioner of dark magic. Sobell is almost certainly condemned to Hell for a magically extended lifetime full of shady dealings. Once you’re in business with him, there’s no backing out.
Karyn and her associates are used to the supernatural and the occult, but their target is more than just the usual family heirloom or cursed necklace. It’s a piece of something larger. Something sinister.
Karyn’s crew and even Sobell himself are about to find out just how powerful it is? and how powerful it may yet become.
