In the second book in the Modern Magic series, Portals, we find that magic portals are opening on their own, creating quite a disturbance. From Moscow to New York, strange and bizarre off worldly creatures are becoming the norm. Not necessarily a good thing.
Three year-old Carter has been adopted by La Fi and Thulu and he sees dead people too! As is usual, La Fi and Thulu's beautiful home is inundated with ghostly happenings both good and bad. We meet elves, the FBI, faeries and of course, the errant demon who can be good or bad, depending upon the circumstance.
The Light Ones have returned, a race of entities who look like angels but feed off human emotion. Thulu, La Fi, and Carter work to get them back to their own magical world through a recalcitrant portal, only to return and face the demons who are up to their own dastardly deeds.
I love the Modern Magic series and had been waiting for a perfect rainy day to read Portals. Well, I got the rain AND a fine book to lose myself in. La Fi and Thulu are my very favorite supernatural detectives. La Fi sees ghosts and Thulu is a finder who can see ghosts, but he can't hear them. La Fi and Thulu are simply captivating as is their adopted son, Carter. You will feel an immediate connection with them for they read as real people. There are a few loose ends I'd like to see connected and will have to wait for the next installment to get my questions answered.
I hope you enjoy the Modern Magics series as much as I have.
For supernatural detectives Thulu and La Fi, “normal” is a relative term. La Fi is a medium, Thulu is a finder, and their usual clients are already dead.
But when their friend Reo is shot, and a group of stranded angels shows up at their house for help finding a missing child, things are striking too close to home.
And the portals that let the magical races return to Earth are opening on their own.
With trips off-world, a kidnapped psychic and changes to their own abilities, Thulu and La Fi are hit with a lot more than they usually handle. Of course, their magical friends are there to help, but even they may not be enough to save an increasingly unstable Earth.
Portals is the cross genre (Sci Fi/Urban Fantasy) sequel to Relics and is Book 2 in the Modern Magics series.
