Diabolist Don Drake returns in the second Burned Man book, this time facing down the spirit of disease and corruption threatening the Earth Elementals below London.
Dominion by Peter McLean picks up right after the first book, with Don, his archdemon patron, and his semi-fallen angel partner getting tricked into dealing with a creature destroying the London Underground. Despite having an archdemon’s power at his fingertips, Don finds himself thrust onto a battleground he’s ill prepared for. Fallen angels, ancient goddesses, a shapeshifting cat priest, and Lucifer himself all compound the issue. London and Heaven may fall, with Don the only one able to stop it.
This is an incredible urban fantasy series that fits in well alongside The Dresden Files and the Iron Druid Chronicles. McLean writes a gritty noir that incorporates the mystical, the supernatural, and the downright crude awesomeness of a drunk magician who can summon demons. This book is filled with violent encounters, swirling magic, and laugh-out-loud moments. It may just be the second book, but this series has the legs to go on for awhile. Get hooked today on this fantastic new series.
