The magical war hinted at in The Witches of Echo Park gains momentum in this intense second Echo Park Coven urban fantasy. Lyse MacAllister rushed back to L.A.s bohemian Echo Park neighborhood at the request of her dying grandmother to find shed inherited the role of master of the local coven. Lyse, whos completely untrained in magic, has to learn fast and earn the trust of her coven blood sisters, because a dangerous entity called the Flood is coming. The Greater Council, which oversees covens around the world, hasnt taken the threat seriously. But Lyses coven, which includes the last Dream Keeper, and Lyse herself, a magical hybrid developing powers in several disciplines, are prime targets for the Floods forces. Benson ramps up the tension by orders of magnitude, forcing Lyse and her coven to split up as they attempt to ward off the Floods agents. As blood sisters travel from Echo Park to Rome and Russia, multiple plot lines will keep readers hopping, and the stage is set for major fireworks to come.
