Unfortunately, when it comes to finding trouble, there’s no place like home. It doesn’t take long before Delilah realizes she’s not in Vegas anymore.

This is Nancy Collins' first book in a new urban fantasy series about an artist who moves to Golgotham, New York City’s underworld, and finds herself in the middle of a battle between humans and the locals. Like most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can’t resist a good rental deal- even if it’s in the city’s strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets. Her new landlord is a sorcerer named Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe’s fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing- and avoiding darkness is no easy trick.

Half-human and half-demon, Allay has finally warmed up to her new life feeding off the customers at her downtown bar when she finds herself brokering a truce between New York City’s most powerful demons. But when she senses assassins around every corner, Allay hides out of sight and underground- until the combatants in the growing war tempt her back above the surface.

WatersDARK WATERS, Alex Prentiss (Bantam, 12/28/2010, $7.99)
By day, Rachel Matre runs a hip diner in downtown Madison, Wisconsin. By night, she slips naked into the waters of a lake whose spirits speak to her, caress her, and take her to a place of indescribable pleasure. But now the machinations of a greedy developer have summoned another force from the depths- a strange, beautiful man with a dark agenda. Soon there is a murder by the lake. During the hunt for the killer, Rachel is pulled into a torturous limbo where all she can feel is her raging erotic lust- and never a release. A crime, an ancient curse, and a confluence of thoroughly modern relationships have plunged Rachel into the ultimate mystery: one whose solution will emerge only out of pain, desire, and a passion for the most forbidden truth of all.
