Gemma Murphy has a nose for a story - even if the boys in Chicago's newsrooms would rather focus on her chest. So when she runs into a handsome man of mystery discussing how to save the world from fancy-pants Brit conspirators, she's sensing a scoop. Especially when he mentions there's magic involved. Of course, getting him on the record would be easier if he hadn't caught her eavesdropping...Catullus Graves knows what it's like to be shut out: his ancestors were slaves. And he's a genius inventor with appropriately eccentric habits, so even people who love him find him a little odd. But after meeting a certain redheaded scribbler, he's thinking of other types of science. Inconvenient, given that he needs to focus on preventing the end of the world as we know it. But with Gemma's insatiable curiosity sparking Catullus' inventive impulses, they might set off something explosive anyway...

At least it was addressed. Still seemed odd. That out of the way...Th...
A great conclusion to the Blades of the Rose series!
My review is posted on Joyfully Reviewed: http://www.joyfullyreviewed.com/new-reviews/stranger-by-zoe-archerReporter Gemma Murphy is often considered an anomaly: she’s a woman who wants to write about more than traditional “female” topics. Gemma has to work twice as hard as a man to get a good story...
I just love this whole series. I think that Scoundrel remains my absolute favorite from it but this one gets a bump up for a great ending to the series. One thing I love in this series is the way that Zoe Archer focused on the myths and magic of each region where the books were set. The desert go...
