They're back. And they want revenge...

Sent to investigate the brutal slaughter of a wendigo in the north Michigan town of Tamarack, Isaac Vainio and his companions find they have wandered into something far more dangerous than a simple killing.

A long established werewolf territory, Tamarack is rife with ancient enemies of Libriomancy who quest for revenge. Isaac has the help of Lena Greenwood, his dryad bodyguard born from the pages of a pulp fantasy novel, but he is not the only one in need of her unique and formidable powers...

Review quote

It's amazing. -- Smart Bitches, Trashy Books [Hines] writes joyously for the delight of his specific market ... a niche loved by many, including this reviewer. * RT Books * It's all packed together with lots of over-the-top action ... It's great fun to see just what Isaac and his enemies will come up with next, and Isaac's very non-standard romance adds both humor and emotion. * Locus * Codex Born has the coolest premise ever ... Hines is an engaging writer who is also greatly entertaining, and I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys superior world-building -- Charlaine Harris pure awesome --
