The first in an exciting series featuring the unforgettable antiquities thief Owl—a modern-day “Indiana Jane” who reluctantly navigates the hidden supernatural world—from the pen of rising urban fantasy star Kristi Charish. For fans of Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Jennifer Estep, Jenn Bennett, and the like. The series also includes Owl and the City of Angels and Owl and the Electric Samurai.

Ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief, Alix—better known now as Owl—has one rule. No supernatural jobs. Ever. Until she crosses paths with Mr. Kurosawa, a red dragon who owns and runs the Japanese Circus Casino in Las Vegas. He insists Owl retrieve an artifact stolen three thousand years ago, and makes her an offer she can’t refuse: he’ll get rid of a pack of vampires that want her dead. A dragon is about the only entity on the planet that can deliver on Owl’s vampire problem—and let’s face it, dragons are known to eat the odd thief.

Owl retraces the steps of Mr. Kurosawa’s ancient thief from Japan to Bali with the help of her best friend, Nadya, and an attractive mercenary. As it turns out though, finding the scroll is the least of her worries. When she figures out one of Mr. Kurosawa’s trusted advisors is orchestrating a plan to use a weapon powerful enough to wipe out a city, things go to hell in a hand basket fast…and Owl has to pick sides.

Industry Reviews

Antiquities thief Owl is snarky, funny, and geeky--in the absolute best way possible. Her globe-trotting escapades are brimming with unique supernatural foes and comic-book cool. Urban fantasy fans will cheer Owl on to the thrilling conclusion and eagerly anticipate the next adventure. Go Owl!--Jenn Bennett, author of Kindling the Moon and the Arcadia Bell series Adventure! Drama! Japanese radish demons! Dr. Kristi Charish in my zombie series is an evil bitch who conducts horrible experiments. But the real Kristi Charish is awesome and her debut novel releases tomorrow! And it's fantastic! Owl and the Japanese Circus! Go buy!--Diana Rowland, author of My Life as a White Trash Zombie Fast-paced, humorous, action-filled, and completely original.--Ian Hamilton, author of the Ava Lee novels Rich, stylish, and uber-geeky. A thrill-ride to the darkly glittering crossroads of myth and archeology.--Phoebe Kitanidis
