Description - Left Hand Magic by Nancy A. Collins
Located on Manhattan's Lower East Side, Golgotham has been the city's supernatural ghetto for centuries. Populated by countless creatures from myth and legend, the neighborhood's most prominent citizens are the Kymera, a race of witches who maintain an uneasy truce with New York City's humans . . . Tate Eresby has accepted the unusual sights and sounds of Golgotham and made it her home. Unfortunately, a magazine has alerted trendsetting hipsters to its existence and they've descended upon the community-along with an anti-Kymera faction known as The Sons of Adam. The sudden influx of tourists escalates racial tensions to a boiling point when two Kymerans are murdered and rioting fills the streets. Tate's relationship with Hexe, the current heir to the Kymeran throne, is also full of tension. Hexe's uncle Esau is an anti human activist who's ready to declare war on the Sons of Adam and who believes Tate is a spy. But is it possible that Tate's time in Golgotham has left her more than human? Praise for Right Hand Magic 'A joy to read.' Simon R. Green, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Bride Wore Black Leather 'Golgotham itself is a fantastically intriguing setting . . . It inspires a sense of wonder akin to what you might have felt when first discovering J.K. Rowling's Diagon Alley.' Fantasy Literature
