Description
The first in an exciting series featuring the unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day "Indiana Jane" who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world—from the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish (The Kincaid Strange series). For fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and the like.Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief, Alix—better known now as Owl—has one rule. No supernatural jobs. Ever. Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen three thousand years ago, and makes her an offer she can't refuse: he'll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead. A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl's vampire problem—and let's face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief. Owl retraces the steps of Mr. Kurosawa's ancient thief from Japan to Bali with the help of her best friend, Nadya, and an attractive mercenary. As it turns out though, finding the scroll is the least of her worries. When she figures out one of Mr. Kurosawa's trusted advisors is orchestrating a plan to use a weapon powerful enough to wipe out a city, things go to hell in a hand basket fast...and Owl has to pick sides.

        Starred review from January 1, 2015

        After being discredited in the archaeology field, former grad student Alix Hiboux became the Owl, a notorious antiquities thief. Her only rule? No working for supernaturals. It turns out that you can't really say no to a dragon, and Owl finds herself traveling to Las Vegas, Tokyo, and Bali in search of an ancient scroll while dodging a vampire who wants her dead. VERDICT The exotic settings and rollicking adventure make this a great new urban fantasy series for fans of Indiana Jones and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Owl is a bit of a train wreck; by her own admission she is extremely bad with people. But she has a loyal friend in old college roommate Nadya and a companion who might want to be more in the mysterious Rynn. She also has a fantastic cat named Captain who can sense vampires. Gamers will love how Owl tries to balance her online dungeon raiding with real-life tomb raiding. Here's to hoping this will be the first of many outings for Owl (and Captain).
