As powerful magic comes creeping back, dangerous days are dawning…
CID inspectors Janus Mikani and Celeste Ritsuko were lucky to make it out of their last mission alive. Since then, strange troubles have plagued the city of steam and shadows, apparently as a result of magic released during Mikani and Ritsuko’s desperate interruption of an ancient ritual. The fabric of the world has been disrupted, and the Council has assigned Mikani and Ritsuko to investigate.
They soon discover that matters are worse than they imagined. Machines have developed minds of their own, cragger pirates are raiding the seas with relentless aggression, and mad elementals are running amok. As the chaos builds to a crescendo, Mikani and Ritsuko must fight a war on two fronts—and this time, they may not be able to turn the deadly tide…
“Silver Mirrors is a series of all-out, no holds barred, bare-fisted confrontations with the dark magical forces that inhabit Hy Breasil's Winter Island. There is no time to catch your breath between chapters. The only thing softening the action is the slow burning romance between our heroes. You will learn a little more of Mikani's past, and then cross your fingers for both Ritusko's and Mikani's future. All I can say is AWESOME!” Riley @ Goodreads “Spouses Ann and Andre Aguirre don’t hesitate to introduce elements whose resolution forces dramatic, irreversible changes on both the setting and the two protagonists. The story catapults the leads toward unexpected existential threats, requiring them to come to terms with shifts in their own relationship before it is too late. The solid mix of police procedural and magical adventure will satisfy urban fantasy fans.” Publisher’s Weekly “This book has the same delightful mix of supernatural, suspense, humor, adventure and love that the first book introduced to its readers. I would highly recommend this book for its unusual mix of content and for its characters. Ritsuko and Mikani are both strong characters that are a perfect combination. In addition, the revolving cast of smaller characters are engaging as well and help to move the story along.” KC @ Amazon
