Sleight of Hand

Shadow Games

by Jennifer Fales


Book Details

In a world where predators rule, war is always at the doorstep, and wolves flirt like nobody’s business, a young woman struggles to define herself and protect the powerful house she is aligned with from disaster.


The highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Shadows and Fire is here! In Sleight of Hand, where humans and human/animal hybrids known as Supernaturals exist in a dystopian parallel future, adult twins Lilith and Laydon try to find their own identities—one leaning toward darkness and the other toward light—as they develop their powers deep in the shadowy world of the domes. The threat of war looms on the horizon and in the midst of this growing conflict Lilith has a vision tied to a suicide bomber. His words hold a clue to her power but also tie to the blackmail of the powerful dragon house she belongs to. Lilith, Augustin, the retired warrior priest she considers her sensei and father, and the Dragon House allies must face a maze of lies, clever gadgets and danger in a quest to unravel the truths behind the bombers ultimate riddle and an ugly secret. Her psychotic brother and a well-heeled night club owner won't make it easy along the way.


Book Excerpt

Looney Louie unbuttoned his trench coat with skeletal hands. His dark eyes shifted to pale blue and made contact with Margaret’s for a few brief moments. His final words, forced in desperation toward a kindred mind, meant little to the horrified crowd. “Respice, adspice, prospice: non omnis moriar.”
