Tricks for Free by Seanan McGuire
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Seanan is my go-to-girl for Urban Fantasy goodness. No matter what she puts her mind to, it's always a treat.
Antimony is here again, on the run, and working at a rip-off Disneyworld. It's a bit of a step up from working in a circus and with these many people running around the park either as guests or employees. It's slightly easier to get lost in the crowd, too, and that's kinda the point. Our favorite derby girl has put away her skates to become a general employee of hell.
Fortunately, she's made some pretty good friends there. Her roomies are a blast. I especially love the Gorgon. Of course, even a long employment run can go down the toilet when the death toll rises and secrets get outed. It's hard to keep secrets in this kind of world. Surveillance everywhere, rampant suspicions of employees. Liabilities rampant.
Secret cabals of magicians running nefarious magic on a Disneyworld business model.
This is popcorn fiction at it's best. :)
Try not to burn the park down.
