An urban fantasy story with a twist. Not only is it set in the past, Ethan Kaille is a departure from the normal female protagonist of the genre. He reminded me a lot of Jim Butcher's character Harry Dresden (see the book Storm Front). Great characters with a fun mix of history and magic.

Good story. I will be seeking out more by D.B. Jackson. Good characters, reasonable feel for historic local and behaviors. The magic is the dullest part. Very mechanical and repetitive.
