Description

The staff of New York's premier supernatural catering company, has their work cut out for them in this outrageous follow-up to Envy of Angels.

Love is in the air at Sin du Jour.

The Goblin King (yes, that one) and his Queen are celebrating the marriage of their son to his human bride. Naturally the celebrations will be legendary.

But when desire and magic mix, the results can be unpredictable.

Our heroes are going to need more than passion for the job to survive the catering event of the decade!


Praise for Sin du Jour:

"Funny and demented . . . I'll read anything this guy writes."
-- Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds and Zer0es, on Envy of Angels

"No one makes me think, 'Dammit, I should have thought of that!' like Matt Wallace. The Sin du Jour series is something I read with equal amounts of envy and delight."
-- Mur Lafferty, Campbell Award winning author of The Shambling Guide to New York City

Praise for Envy of Angels --

"No one makes me think, 'Dammit, I should have thought of that!' like Matt Wallace. The Sin du Jour series is something I read with equal amounts of envy and delight." -- Mur Lafferty, Campbell Award winning author of The Shambling Guide to New York City

"Matt Wallace tells a raucous, riotous tale of culinary madness -- a jaw-dropping horror-fantasy restauranteur Thunderdome that makes the 'monkey brain' scene in Temple of Doom look like something you'd see on Nickelodeon. It's like I dropped a heroic dose of acid and turned on the Food Network for eight hours. It's funny and demented and sticks in you like a pinbone. Matt Wallace writes like someone just jammed a needle full of adrenaline in his heart -- and then, in yours. From this point forward, I'll read anything this guy writes." -- Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds and Zer0es

"Envy of Angels is one of the most original urban fantasies I've read in a damn long time. Angels, demons and the New York restaurant scene. It doesn't get any weirder than this. Matt Wallace is an author to watch." -- Stephen Blackmoore, author of Dead Things and Broken Souls

"Envy of Angels is exactly the breath of fresh air I didn't know I needed: darkly funny, sweepingly inventive, and just plain fun to read. Every time I thought I got the hang of this book, the next turn took me someplace even more breathtakingly weird and wonderful. Buy it. DO IT NOW. It's the only way we can force him to write a dozen more of these!" -- Andrea Phillips, author of Revision
