When Daniel Blackland was six, he ingested his first bone fragment. When he was twelve, the Hierarch of Southern California killed his magician father…and ate him.
Los Angeles is a tough town. It’s literally about who eats whom.
Ten years ago Daniel Blackland destroyed the Hierarch of Southern California and fled, taking Sam, a golem created from the late Hierarch’s magic, with him. They’ve been on the run ever since. Daniel is determined to protect Sam and teach him magic, but all Sam wants is a chance for a normal life; to attend school or meet a girl.
To make matters worse, back in LA someone is building a Pacific firedrake, an ultimate weapon of mass magical destruction. When Daniel is incapacitated, it is up to Sam to try to stop them.
PRAISE FOR PACIFIC FIRE:
“Half crime caper, half heroic quest, Pacific Fire pulls the reader into an inventive, compelling, fully-textured urban fantasy world, mixing SoCal culture with magic so ingenious and convincing you can practically smell it, and feel it crunch between your teeth.
A real treasure, not to be missed.”
—KURT BUSIEK, author of Astro City
"A welcome expansion of the playground
of Eekhout’s universe."
PRAISE FOR CALIFORNIA BONES:
"If you like capers mixed with your political noir, then shot through with dark magic, this book will blow you away."
