Cassidy Kincaide owns Trifles & Folly, an antique/curio store and high-end pawn shop in Charleston, South Carolina that is more than what it seems. Dangerous magical and supernatural items sometimes find their way into mortal hands or onto the market, and Cassidy is part of a shadowy Alliance of mortals and mages whose job it is to take those deadly curiosities out of circulation.

Welcome to Trifles & Folly, an antique and curio shop with a dark secret. Proprietor Cassidy Kincaide continues a family tradition begun in 1670—acquiring and neutralizing dangerous supernatural items. It’s the perfect job for Cassidy, whose psychic gift lets her touch an object and know its history. Together with her business partner Sorren, a 500 year-old vampire and former jewel thief, Cassidy makes it her business to get infernal objects off the market. When mundane antiques suddenly become magically malicious, it’s time for Cassidy and Sorren to get rid of these Deadly Curiosities before the bodies start piling up.

I'm really excited for DEADLY CURIOSITIES by Gail Z. Martin. I really enjoyed her series the Chronicles of the Necromancer and can't wait to see what she has in store with this new Urban Fantasy. I like the sound of the premise with its antique/high end pawn shop that is a front for acquiring and neutralizing dangerous supernatural items. One of the things I like about Gail's Chronicles of the Necromancer series was the fact the women were just as kick-butt as the men, and the magic and world building was out of this world. Oh, yes, and for those of you who know I like romance on the side, her books had terrific, fated romances. So I can only hope :)
