Mystic mysteries in the City of Dark Magic'

Fantasy thriller blends and transcends genres

Prague is a city of mysteries. While many European cities have histories filled with intrigue and mysticism, Prague might well surpass them all. It was once a place of vast wealth and cultural depth; even today, after years of damage done by Nazis and communists, it remains a place of significance.

And according to Magnus Flyte, Prague is also the 'City of Dark Magic' (Penguin, $16). Flyte the shared pseudonym of writers Meg Howrey and Christina Lynch has taken this city that has been home to royalty and rabble and alchemists and artists and constructed a tale of mystical mystery and intrigue.

The beauty of motion The Cranes Dance'

Novel offers behind-the-scenes look at ballet

As a reader, picking up the second offering from an author whose debut I enjoyed is a mixed bag. Sometimes, the writer picks up right where he or she left off, continuing onward and upward in their literary journey. Other times more times, frankly the descent begins as the author grapples with the law of diminishing returns.

Take Meg Howrey, for instance. Her debut was a novel called 'Blind Sight.' It was excellent; well-written, thoughtful, literate fiction. So I had high hopes for her sophomore effort 'The Cranes Dance' (Vintage; $17.95).

I would not be disappointed.
