Fantasy Urban

Known for her Hex series, Linda Wisdom ventures into darker urban-fantasy waters that still sparkle with plenty of humor.

Maggie O'Malley is a witch and a member of the Hellion Guard. The Guard has been her family since getting kicked out of the Witches' Academy eons ago. Its mission is to stay under the radar and protect both paranormal beings and humans, which can get a little messy if you are pursuing a being which can explode at will.

Declan is a half-demon with the gift of fire. He fought and earned the right to own and manage Damnation Ally, the club built right on top of a gate to and from the underworld. A nice guy, he literally went through hell while being raised by his nasty demon dad. At last he is in a position to control his own destiny, and help those who have become dear to him. He is not pleased when the club's new décor is covered with Bloater goo. Although the witch who tackled it is very intriguing, even while covered in slime.

A rebellious throw-away teen is the focus of a group whose goal is summoning an ancient evil to destroy the earth. Yes, she's a pain in the ass, but she does not deserve being used as a human sacrifice. It's up to the Hellion Guard to keep the Mayan cult's dreams from coming true.

DEMONS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND has plenty of romance and passion woven through a well-built and fascinating world. Declan is hot, Maggie is willing and things get complicated in the best sort of way.

Linda Wisdom has the gift of creating strong paranormal characters with a concrete sense of reality and plenty of interest to build upon in future installments. She also has a knack for crafting laugh-out-loud funny scenes and dialogue. Reading any of her books is a delightful escape from the hum-drum daily grind.
