Description
Siobhan Quinn is back and working a new case in the dark and satirical sequel to "Blood Oranges."
Half-vampire, half-werewolf Siobhan Quinn survived her initiation into the world of demons and monsters. But staying alive as she becomes entangled in underworld politics might prove to be more difficult. When the daughter of a prominent necromancer vanishes, it's up to Quinn to find the girl. But her search will land her directly in the middle of a struggle between competing forces searching for an ancient artifact of almost unimaginable power...

Praise For Red Delicious

Praise for Red Delicious

"Gritty urban fantasy meets old-fashioned noir in this high octane sequel to Blood Oranges."—Publishers Weekly

"[A] rollicking good time...witty and snide and wonderfully awful."—Tor.com

"It feels great to be back in the world of Siobhan Quinn...The fast-paced, volatile and unpredictable nature of the story means there is never a dull moment."—The Bibliosanctum

Praise for Blood Oranges

"The New England setting is colorful and convincing, and Tierney populates it with a weird and splendid set of supernatural beings...A memorably exhilarating and engaging experience."—Kirkus Reviews

"An engagingly fresh perspective to well-trod territory...Colorful side characters and a fully realized setting make this a fast-paced series opener well worth checking out."—Publishers Weekly

"[Kiernan] has made it her business to turn the comfortable genres of imaginative fiction inside out. Now writing as Kathleen Tierney she introduces a heroine as fascinating and compelling as she is foul-mouthed and impatient."—Library Journal

"[A] fast-paced, profane, and combustive little thriller."—The Black Letters
