PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Attention to Books of Interest

Magic Lantern (Rogue Angel)
This just goes to show how far out of it I am.  I didn't even know about this series, but there are something like 35 books in it already.  I was thoroughly entertained by this one, and you can read my Amazon review of it at this link.

Magic Lantern (Rogue Angel): Alex Archer: 9780373621569: Books: In late 1700s Paris, a young but promising illusionist dabbles in the arcane art of phantasmagoria. But at his moment of greatest triumph—unveiling a magical lantern said to open a door to the Chinese spirit world—he is violently struck down by a vengeful phantom…. On assignment in London, archaeologist Annja Creed is hunting down a man who claims to have discovered the Jekyll and Hyde potion. On the trail of one curiosity, Annja finds herself pulled toward another mystery…the origin of a strange, old-fashioned projector once used by eighteenth-century illusionists. As Annja delves into its rich history, a dark past begins to emerge. And someone wants to harness the power of this cursed artifact…risking everything for the treasures it promises. But Annja has a little magic trick of her own. One that she wields with deadly accuracy….

You should go back and read the first in the series, Destiny, which is also written by Mel Odom. That one explains a lot about Annja and the sword.

Probably a good idea.

Bill, I'm with you I guess. I never heard of it either.
