About The Book

J.S. Kelley weaves epic fantasy and hardboiled noir in this fast-paced, twisting tale of magic, mystery, and a whole lot of unruly behavior.

In a kingdom where magic fuels everything from street lamps to horseless carriages, the mage guilds of Penador wield power equal to the king himself. So when Lord Edmund’s infant son is kidnapped by the ruthless Alath Guild, he turns to the one person who’s feared by even the most magically adept: Rosalind Featherstone, a.k.a. the Gutter Mage.

But as Roz delves into the circumstances behind the child’s disappearance, she uncovers an old enemy from her traumatic past and a long-brewing plot that could lead to the death of countless innocents, as well as the complete collapse of Penadorian society itself!

Raves and Reviews

"Parenteau brings Roz's bombastic personality to life, especially her heavy doses of cursing and violence, with surprising depth. Characters stand out with varied accents that makes the world of Penador both familiar and unsettling. Parenteau’s performance weaves an introspective tale without losing the color and thrills of the fantasy world."
