Counterfeit Magic eBook

by Kelley Armstrong

Availability: In stock


Illustrated by Maurizio Manzieri

Return to the world of Kelley Armstrong's best-selling novels Dime Store Magic and Industrial Magic for a long original novella.

The first rule of a supernatural fight club? Don't kill your opponent.

When the fighters come with lethal spells, werewolf strength and half-demon powers, that can be a lot tougher than it sounds. It's hard to attract talent if they know they might not leave the ring alive. So when fighters at a California club start dying—it's bad for business.

Witch detectives Paige Winterbourne and Savannah Levine take the case. Going undercover in the power-heavy arena of the fight club is a welcome change of pace for Paige, relegated to the role of The Wife as her husband struggles to find his place in his family's Cabal—the corporate Mafia of the supernatural world.

As Paige is drawn deeper into new and dangerous corners of her world, she quickly discovers the greatest threat isn't the killer in her sights. It's something much, much closer to home. And this is one fight she can't afford to lose.

The Limited Edition of Counterfeit Magic be leatherbound, with a completely different dust jacket than the Trade Edition. In addition, the Trade Edition cover will be reproduced as a full-color frontispiece. Both editions will feature 8-10 full page black and white interior illustrations.

From Publishers Weekly:
“a good introduction for new readers as well as a pleasant little extra for those who have been following the soap opera lives of these characters from the beginning.”

From Booklist:
'Set in the same universe as her earlier books, Dime Store Magic (2004) and Industrial Magic (2004), Armstrong's new novella is a stand-alone blend of crime story and urban fantasy, a good place to start for readers new to Armstrong's urban-fantasy world.'
