Description

A young woman possessed by a ghost has slain the Fisher King of the West, Scott Crane. Now, temporarily freed from the malevolent spirit, she seeks to restore the King to life and thwart the would-be usurper. But Crane's body has been taken by his loyal servants to the magically protected home of Pete and Angelica Sullivan, where their adopted son, Koot Hoomie, is bleeding from a wound that will not heal. Kootie is destined to be the next King, but he is only thirteen years old - too young, his mother thinks, to perform the rituals to assume the Kingship. But not too young, perhaps, to assist in reuniting Scott Crane's body and spirit and restoring him to life. Earthquakes, fires, floods, and riots plague California. Powerful ghosts wander the cities, too strong for even the cleverest hunters. Only the restoration of the King can restore the balance, and it must be done soon.show more

Review quote

Powers continues his winning ways with "Earthquake Weather," a sequel of sorts to the brilliant "Expiration Date" Powers melds fact and fantasy so convincingly that you could spend a lot of time looking up the fancies he presents to determine if they're indeed true, partially true, or completely made up .Other writers tell tales of magic in the 20th century, but nobody does it like Powers.
