Courting Darkness
The Magicsmith Book 2
by L.R. Braden
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance 

A great story of murder, mystery . . . and well-developed

characters.”—Margie Hager, Netgalley Reviewer on A Drop of Magic

A Drop of Magic is a damned fun and original read, with sass,

action, hot men, and a whole lot of magic.” —Diana Pharaoh

Francis, author of the Diamond City Magic, Magicfall,

and Horngate Witches series

Deeper into the shadows. . .

The paranatural community isn’t done with Alex. She’s been summoned

to the fae court, and she’s got her hands full trying to prepare.

But her date with the fae will have to wait. There’s been a death

at the gallery, and the man she hoped would be a part of her future

is the prime suspect.

Bitter enemies pull her into the middle of a paranatural war for territory

that has her dodging police, swords, teeth, and claws—not to

mention the truth. The deeper she digs, the more secrets she

uncovers, and the less certain she is about the innocence of the one

man she wanted to trust.

She thought she was done with murder and monsters, but she’ll have to

enter the belly of the beast if she hopes to save her friend.


A Drop of Magic
The Magicsmith Book 1
The war isn’t over . . .

With the world clinging to a fragile peace forced on the Fae by humanity

after the Faerie Wars, metalsmith Alex Blackwood is plunged into the

world of the half-fae who traffick in illegal magical artifacts. Her

best friend’s murder and his cryptic last message place her in the

crosshairs of a scheme to reignite the decade-old war between humans

and fae.

Worse, violent attacks against her and the arrival of a fae knight on a

mission force Alex to face a devastating revelation of who

and what she is. To catch a killer, retrieve a

dangerous artifact, and stop a war, Alex will have to accept that

she’s an unregistered fae “halfer” with a unique magical

talent—a talent that would change everything she believes about her

past, her art, and her future.

Her world is crumbling around her, and Alex will have to decide who to

trust if she and the world are going to survive.

A Drop of Magic is a damned fun and original read, with sass, action,
hot men, and a whole lot of magic.”

Diana Pharaoh Francis, author of the Diamond

City Magic, Magicfall, and Horngate Witches series
