AN OLD FRIEND OF THE FAMILY... Alexandra Belarus is a struggling artist living in New York City, even though her family is rich in real estate, including a towering Gothic Gramercy Park building built by her great-great-grandfather. But the truth of her bloodline is revealed when she is attacked on the street and saved by an inhumanly powerful winged figure. A figure who knows the Belarus name...

No sophomore slump here! I had been anxiously awaiting the followup to last year's Alchemystic, the first in Anton Strout's Spellmason series, since I absolutely adored it. After doing everything but having the labor pains to bring it forth, I finally, finally got my hands on it on release day. I...
This is the first book in The Spellmason Chronicles by Anton Strout. I picked this book up because I liked the cover and the blurb sounded interesting.
