Ever go someplace new and out of a crowd of people there’s a few special personalities that just pop? For me, one of those people is Erika Gardner, whom I met the San Francisco Writers’ Conference several years ago. With her spunky, irreverent charm, she can walk through a crowd of strangers and make a swaths of new friends in her wake.
There is magic beneath the mundane and in The Dragon in the Garden, Siobhan Orsini witnesses it all. No lie can fool her, no glamour or illusion can cloud her Sight. She sees through them all and wishes she could close her eyes. Returning to face her past, Siobhan inherits her grandparents’ house in California’s wine country. She encounters a talking dragon, a hot fallen angel, a demon lord, a Valkyrie, and, oh yes, her ex-boyfriend. And that is just in the first twenty-four hours.
