Tina Clancy here, and I have yet to work my way up
to that sword-wielding goddess in the corner. I may no longer be
a four-eyed cripple or a bookkeeper, but graduating to starving
law clerk with good eyesight is only a notch better. Yeah, I finally
have my law license---hallelujah!--- but the job market in Baltimore's
environmental disaster Zone isn't what it ought to be.
Regrettably, my invisible granny's claim that I was
born under some weird conjunction of Saturn with a few stray asteroids
is starting to look more probable. The word is that the closer I
get to my twenty-seventh birthday, the stronger my thirst for justice
becomes. I turn twenty-six this year and so far, my intolerance
for bullies has racked up a weird reputation for---literally---
blowing things out of proportion. Conjuring tornadoes and sending
my boyfriend to hell and bringing him back as a United States senator
blows my mind anyway. Now, if only I could visualize a real man
in my bed instead of the lying scum I have to deal with, this Saturn
gig might be worth something.
Instead, I have a mob clamoring at my door, demanding
The Zone's boss, sexy Andre Legrande, has this truly
jackass idea that I can defend him for murdering the senator's grandmother.
The witch deserved to die, and I owe Andre, but let's get real!
I'm an overworked, unappreciated clerk.
Worse, my friends in the Zone expect me to bring down
the chemical plant after their mad scientists gassed us and rendered
half the neighborhood comatose. The other half is waiting for me
to send Andre to hell. But I've finally found a home in the Zone,
so me and my cranky manx cat, invisible adopted brother, and snake-conjuring
BFF have to save the town.
Unfortunately, my no-longer-boyfriend is none too
pleased with my sending his granny to Hell. And neither is granny...

Praise for BOYFRIEND
“Unlike many down-on-their-luck heroes who never
seem to suffer, Quaid’s characters are genuinely desperate, lending
a real sense of danger and urgency. Without a vampire, werewolf,
or fallen angel to be seen, this strong debut is a pleasantly fresh
take [on the genre].”
“Quaid jumps into the urban fantasy genre with a bang.
. . . She quickly establishes a unique cast of characters, full
of flaws and mystery. There is plenty of humor, wild action, and
vigilante justice in this truly excellent beginning of the Saturn’s
