Product Description

Wren Valere's job is driving her crazy. She's still Manhattan's most sought-after Retriever, but after last year's deadly confrontation with the Silence, all this magic-user wants is a break. With her apartment going co-op and her relationship with the demon P.B. putting stress on her romance with partner Sergei, is Wren finally ready to settle down to a more stable existence?Not likely.Because when you're good, trouble always finds you. Wren's next assignment puts her on the wrong side of a child-snatcher--and a collision course with her past. But to save a friend--and protect her future--Wren must pull off the most important Retrieval of her life...and for once magic isn't on her side.

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid ending to a good series 7 May 2009
By Summeroz - Published on
It surprises me that this series has not taken off and become more popular than it has. I think it is one of the most original and fascinating urban fantasy series out there. I agree that that maybe book 3 or so was not as strong as the first 2 but I really do think that book 5 and 6 were very strong and interesting and I am sad to see that she is ending the series or "setting it aside" for an indeterminate amount of time to write something else!

In this final chapter, Wren's job/life is driving her crazy. She's still one of the best Retrievers, even after last year's deadly confrontation with the Silence and almost wizzing. With her apartment going co-op and her relationship with the demon P.B. putting stress on her romance with partner Sergei, Wren is contemplating a move to the country?! what?!!!! Can anyone imagine wren in the country? I think not! We learn a little more about P.B. and his background where he comes from and someone from his past is after him. Wren has to protect her friend and their special relationship.

Intermixed with the action are personal scenes of Sergei trying to figure out his relationship with Wren and what he really wants. Her, her current and just what does their future hold?

I will miss Wren and her merry little band and I hope LAG will come back to them soon. If you are picking up this series for the first time I really recommend that you start from book 1. Trying to figure out the current, the silence, the cosa and all that is just too much to start from here. I think this is a solid installment of the series and I don't think fans will be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, if not perfect. 14 Jun 2009
By Catherine Winterfox - Published on
Wren Valere is a Retriever. Using her Talent to channel "current", she performs what an everyday joe would call magic. Usually, she can get in, retrieve what the client has requested, and get out, no strings attached. This retrieval is special. She must obtain the notes of the mad scientist who created one of her best friends-P.B., a "demon" who has saved her life more than once-before those notes are grabbed by people who would enslave him.

There are actually a couple of stories going on here. Early in the book, Wren encounters the familiar scent of her mentor and father-figure, Ebenezer, whom she had previously presumed dead. Don't get me wrong, I love Gilman, and I enjoyed this book; however, this plot line suffered from too much tell and not enough show. I felt hammered with repetitive ruminations about Neezer and what he meant to Wren. I got it after the first couple shots, really. It seems space was wasted here that would have been better spent in the heads of the bad guys from the primary plot.

That said, this book is still some lovely stuff. I enjoyed the interstitials with Sergei in therapy. Wren and Sergei have long been a favorite fictional couple, and it's nice to see them working on normal (relatively) relationship stuff. I always favor series with non-magical romances; nothing is forced by fate. No "I knew she was my lifemate the moment I scented her" claptrap.

The main plot, though it needed more bad-guy time, is also a keeper. We find out more about P.B.'s mysterious past, with a hint that there may be a little more Talent science in the future. In addition, a nifty new character, in the form of a curious Federal agent, is introduced.

While I wouldn't exactly call this book a break, it is a lot less frantic than the last two, and that's completely welcome. I expect this series is beginning to wind down after six installments, and Gilman is getting ready to hand the baton to Bonnie and the Paranormal Scene Investigations series, which begins next year with Hard Magic.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 14 Mar 2014

I have enjoyed this series enormously. It's fast pasted and really tells you what the characters are like which makes for a great read. I would suggest you start with the first book to get the whole experience. I am now onto the other books she has written.
5.0 out of 5 stars good reading 27 Nov 2012

If you like this kind of book it makes for great reading. Hated putting it down to go to bed.
5.0 out of 5 stars The story continues!! 15 Mar 2010

Really good action, mystery, and character interactions! The usual best from Laura Anne Gilman.

This is 6th in the series and it does need to be read from the beginning of the series for the most enjoyment. The stories are stand-a-lone, but the character development and background from the earlier stories areimportant.
