Staying Dead by Laura Anne Gilman

Staying Dead (Retrievers, Book 1) Staying Dead by Laura Anne Gilman

My review

A thoroughly delightful Urban Fantasy that is far off the beaten track. There are no werewolves or vampires. But there is magic—a semi-scientific kind of magic that can be wielded by Talents. Powered by "current" (which has a lot in common with electricity), a Talent might employ Psi-like extra-normal capabilities like telekinesis, levitation, translocation, etc. I'm glad that it's the first in a series, so I'll be able to read more about Wren and Sergei and the NYC they inhabit.

I won this book from Xeyra in the July PUF swap at BookObsessed. I decided to offer it up in the October PUF swap, so I had to get busy reading it so I'd be able to mail it off as soon as possible. It's going to Pepper in Cincinnati.
