Trio of Sorcery
Arcanum 101, Drums, and Ghost in the Machine
Author: Mercedes Lackey
In Trio of Sorcery, Mercedes Lackey presents three exciting short urban fantasy novels, including the return of Diana Tregarde and the debut of a brand-new heroine for the twenty-first century.
Arcanum 101: Diana Tregarde, hero of Burning Water. Studying at Harvard, Diana is asked to investigate a fake psychic—and discovers that the psychic is not a fake…and has kidnapped a young child!
Drums: Jennifer Talldeer, hero of Sacred Ground. Nathan Begay and his girlfriend are from different tribes, but their real problem is that Caroline has attracted the attention of an angry Osage ghost. Nathan asks Jenny, an Osage shaman, for help banishing the dead warrior.
Ghost in the Machine: Ellen McBride, techno-shaman. The "boss" of an new MMORPG is out of control. A brilliant programmer as well as a magic-worker, Ellen discovers that the wendigo in the game is real—and it's about to break out of the servers and into our world!
