Disappearing Nightly and Spellcrossed
June 11, 2012 - Amy Phelps
A reprint edition of Laura Resnick's "Disappearing Nightly" is now available from DAW Books!
DAW, which has published books two through four of the Esther Diamond series, "Doppelgangster," "Unsympathetic Magic" and "Vamparazzi," the wickedly funny series about a stage actress who keeps attracting all sorts of supernatural misadventures. "Disappearing Nightly" had been published by a different company and for the first time is available with the rest of the series!
Esther is working on a very off-Broadway show, about the adventures of a stage magician, as the understudy to the vapid pop singer Golly Gee. But Golly Gee disappears during a stage illusion - and never reappears! While this is good for Esther's career, she now gets the role and the good song, but she immediately starts getting strange notes to not perform the trick, that something evil is afoot. It turns out the notes are from Maximillian Zadok, a mage, who has spent his 350-year life protecting the world from evil and now is trying to protect Esther's life! Because Golly Gee is not the only person who has disappeared, and probably won't be the last...
For fans of the series or those who want an introduction to this very funny paranormal tale, get a new look at Esther's first crazy adventure into the gothic supernatural!
"Disappearing Nightly" is published by DAW. It is $7.99 and 386 pages long. Look for "Polterheist" coming soon.
Another store of magic and the stage comes in Barbara Ashford's "Spellcrossed."
Last summer, Maggie Graham got more than she bargained for playing in a summer theater - she set a gorgeous man from Faerie, Rowan Mackenzie, free to return home (along with her heart) and has now inherited the Crossroads Theatre. And while with Rowan's absense, nothing feels magical to Maggie, she must still deal with annoying board presidents, inexperienced actors, spotlight hogging experienced actors and meet the demands of ticket sales. But her heart still calls to Rowan, and soon he is back in her arms again, but for how long? And then Maggie gets the shock of her life - her father is still alive! By the time the summer ends, can Maggie keep both men or will they both fade away? This series combines the magic of community theater with the magic of the fairy world for a dreamy story perfect for the summer.
"Spellcrossed" is published by DAW. It is $7.99 and 435 pages long.
