About the Author

Laura Bickle grew up in rural Ohio, reading entirely too many comic books out loud to her favorite Wonder Woman doll. After graduating with an MA in Sociology-Criminology from Ohio State University and an MLIS in Library Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, she patrolled the stacks at the public library and worked with data systems in criminal justice. She now dreams up stories about the monsters under the stairs. Her work has been included in the ALA's Amelia Bloomer Project 2013 reading list and the State Library of Ohio's Choose to Read Ohio reading list for 2015-2016.

"Following the prequels Dark Alchemy and Mercury Retrograde, Bickle's series launch mixes alchemy, folklore, and Native American traditions with a wintry Western landscape that will intrigue fans of the Weird West subgenre."--Library Journal
"Full marks to Bickle for...this...consistently engaging series. Our protagonist is as likeable and resourceful as ever...The way the series sticks to a single source of the supernatural while still managing to come up with a wide range of very compelling."--RT Book Reviews
"Readers who like no-nonsense characters, the occult, Native American myths, and the modern Wild West will enjoy this. The writing is fun, compelling, and straight from the hip, with no apologies as to language used."--Booklist
"Bickle does an excellent job of letting her characters speak for themselves and blending realistic, grounded conflicts with her supernatural plot...Also of note is Bickle's respectful treatment of Native American spirituality... Bickle is well on her way to establishing her work as a cornerstone of her genre."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Bickle's world and characters are enjoyably complex, sinking the reader happily into this contemporary fantasy landscape."--Meghan McCain
