*Fully updated author edition: bursting with extra Heart, Snark, and Ass-kicking.*Shamus “Shame” Flynn is a Death magic user with a smart mouth and a bad attitude. His job riding a desk while keeping an eye on the city’s humdrum magic users isn’t making his mood any better, either.
Sure, the most dangerous magic was locked away for good three years ago, but that doesn’t mean people have stopped trying to access the old, deadly powers.
Shame isn’t trying to access the deadly powers, because he already found a loophole. He can break magic and make it just as powerful as it used to be–as long as he gets the cooperation of goody-good Life magic user, Terric Conely.
Terric Conley has devoted his life to enforcing magical laws, and he’s not about to change now. Besides, breaking magic will only lead to disaster, and he refuses to be a part of Shame’s death wish.
But when dark government forces and an assassin bent on revenge align to kill the people Shame and Terric care about, there is only one choice left. Break magic, pay the price, and hunt the killers all the way to hell and back again.
