Forget the fairy-tale, hocus-pocus, wave a wand and bling-o, sparkles and pixie dust crap. Magic, like booze, sex, and drugs, gives as good as it gets. In modern day Portland Oregon, magic is the newest natural resource everyone can use. The only catch? The price for using magic is pain. Allie is the strong-willed daughter of a wealthy business man who made his fortune patenting technology to make magic available to the masses.  But Allie doesn’t want anything to do with the family’s dirty fortune. She instead goes into business as a Hound–tracking illegal spells back to their caster, even though using magic sometimes costs her a second price–the loss of her memories.

When Allie discovers there is a  organization of secret magic users in the city who are on the brink of war, and that those people are her powerful father’s enemies, she must fight not only for her life and lives of those she loves, but also for magic itself.  Unfortunately for her enemies, Allie isn’t the kind of woman to back down–no matter the price to pay.

In an alternate 1800′s America where steam, iron, and magic collide, the only thing a man can count on is his guns, gears, and grit.  Although the devisers have civilized the east with their contraptions, civilization hasn’t tamed the frontier that bounty hunter Cedar Hunt rides. Cursed by lycanthropy and carrying the guilt of his brother’s death, he’s a hard man for hire. But when a trio of miners offers him the possibility that his brother may yet survive, Cedar isn’t going to haggle for payment. All he has to do for them is find the Holder: a powerful device created by mad devisers from the realm of the Strange.

The Holder is in the hands of Shard Lefel, a dandified railroad tycoon who’s come to Hallelujah, Oregon, promising a civilized tomorrow. But what Cedar cannot know is that Lefel is an ancient Strange banished to walk this land for centuries. Now nearing the end of his sentence, Lefel is desperately searching for a way to fend off his own mortality–and the Holder may be the key.

Instead of the deadly force it once was, magic is now a useless novelty. But not for Shame Flynn and Terric Conley, “breakers” who have the gift for reverting magic back to its full-throttle power. In the magic-dense city of Portland, Oregon, keeping a low profile means keeping their gifts quiet. After three years of dealing with disgruntled magic users, Shame and Terric have had enough of politics, petty magic, and, frankly, each other. It’s time to call it quits.

When the government discovers the breakers’ secret—and its potential as a weapon—Shame and Terric suddenly become wanted men, the only ones who can stop the deadly gift from landing in the wrong hands. If only a pair of those wrong hands didn’t belong to a drop-dead-gorgeous assassin Shame is falling for as if it were the end of the world. And if he gets too close to her, it very well could be….
