Description

Long
Black Curl
is the latest installment in Alex Bledsoe's acclaimed
urban fantasy series, where magic is hidden in plain sight and age-old
rivalries simmer just beneath the surface.

In all the time the Tufa have existed, only two have
ever been exiled: Bo-Kate Wisby and her lover, Jefferson Powell. They were cast
out, stripped of their ability to make music, and cursed to never be able to
find their way back to Needsville. Their crime? A love that crossed the
boundary of the two Tufa tribes, resulting in the death of several people.

Somehow Bo-Kate has found her way back. She intends
to take over both tribes, which means eliminating both Rockhouse Hicks and
Mandalay Harris. Bo-Kate has a secret weapon: Byron Harley, a rockabilly singer
known as the "Hillbilly Hercules" for his immense size and strength, and who
has passed the last sixty years trapped in a bubble of faery time. He's ready
to take revenge on any Tufa he finds.

The only one who can stop Bo-Kate is Jefferson
Powell. Released from the curse and summoned back to Cloud County, even he
isn't sure what will happen when they finally meet. Will he fall in love with
her again? Will he join her in her quest to unite the Tufa under her rule? Or
will he have to sacrifice himself to save the people who once banished him?

        March 30, 2015
        Bledsoe’s third tale (after Wisp of a Thing) of the Tufa—Appalachia-dwelling descendants of the Fae, all possessing great musical talent—sees two of their own returning, after a long exile, to fight for leadership of the community. Bo-Kate Wisby feels slighted by the Tufa and wants revenge. She starts by eliminating Rockhouse Hicks, a longtime leader recently fallen on hard times. As the two factions of the Tufa react to this power vacuum, they recall Bo-Kate’s former lover, Jefferson Powell, the only one who understands her weaknesses. Meanwhile, Bo-Kate has recruited a legendary musician, thought dead for decades, to help her achieve her bloody goals. The core concept is solid and fascinating; the execution strikes just the right tone between fantastic and tragic. Bledsoe plays with lyrics and atmosphere, incorporates folklore and superstition to good effect, and even toys with alternate history for further resonance. The slow-building plot works well with the extended cast of characters, but the climax and conclusion feel rushed. Agent: Marlene Stringer, Stringer Literary Agency.
