About this item
Indiana Jones meets dragons and video games in the second novel of the Owl series from rising urban fantasy author, Kristi Charish.Most people try to get a full time job. Alix was coerced into one.Alix Hiboux, better known now as Owl, international antiquities thief for hire, is settling into her new job as a contract thief for Vegas mogul Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon with a penchant for ancient, supernatural artifacts. And now he has his sights set on a collection from the mysterious and recently discovered Syrian City of the Dead.Well, on a the bright side, at least this time the artifacts are sitting in a L.A. recluse’s private collection, and not some supernaturally infested temple. Simple, right?In Owl’s experience ‘simple’ and ‘supernatural’ belong together about as well as her Cat, Captain, and a swimming pool. There’s more to the artifacts and the ancient City of the Dead than meets the eyes.To stop the resurrection of an undead army set on the invasion of Los Angeles, Owl heads to one of the most volatile regions of the world to break into a heavily guarded archaeological sight. A detour through Libya and a run in with Somali pirates branching out into the lucrative world of black market antiquities means Owl is going to be close to the wire to stop a supernatural disaster.And though Alexander and the Paris vampires have stopped stalking her apartment, they’ve by no means forgotten their death grudge against Owl.To top everything off, Owl finds out the hard way that the City of Angels is anything but.
