Letta Roberts, a rookie Philadelphia detective, is failing at her first big case to find a man who sells kids on an underground cyber market. The man is a ghost hidden behind rumors of “magic” and layers of gang members. Her latest attempt to get information backfired. Worse, a violent storm looms over the city and she’s told to abandon the case and work emergency services.
But when a little girl gives Letta her first real lead, she’s offered one last chance: find her target before the storm breaks or she’s off the case for good and back to working the desk.
When the storm dumps magic along with the rain, the city is plunged into chaos, and Letta’s life changes forever. If Letta can’t figure out how to deal with the elements, fast, she might become Rook’s next victim.
Taking Earth is the fourth book in the House of Xannon elemental magic series. If you like urban fantasy featuring strong women using magic, skill, and guts to save the world one catastrophe at a time, you’ll love the House of Xannon.
