Lucinda is as old as humanity itself, yet perpetually young, beautiful, and endowed with supernatural powers. She lives a double life―human and immortal. Born out of a betrayal of trust between the first woman, Eve, and father, Lucifer, Lucinda has worked covertly and subtly for millennia to be true to her mother’s love by subverting her father’s schemes. In her human guise, she manages Lucinda’s Pawnshop & Antiquary, the doors of which can open to any street anywhere in the world at any time. Mortals who have arrived at a moral or spiritual crossroads are drawn into the mysterious shop. If they acquire one of its cursed artifacts, they may find themselves drafted into Lucifer’s service. And if the Devil's daughter will not love a man he can control, can Lucifer control the man she loves?

About the Author:

Hope Schenk-de Michele and Paul Marquez have been best friends for more than four decades. They both grew up in Los Angeles, California, and share a passion for mystery and science fiction. This passion led them to create the forever young and beautiful daughter of darkness, Lucinda. While creating Lucinda's Pawnshop, they co-produced such titles as Bloody Proof and El Grito, a dual language, straight-to-video detective film shot in English and in Spanish. They also produced the 2001 Imagine Awards, 200 episodes of the syndicated home improvement television show Home Magazine, Humphrey the Bear for Galavision, and others. Paul and Hope have also created an exceptionally fun board game called SPIN, SKIN and WIN for the young adult market, and are currently developing it into a television show. To assist in bringing Lucinda's story into the literary world, Hope and Paul enlisted the help of Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff as a collaborator. Maya is a New York Times best-selling author of science fiction, fantasy, and alternate history, as well as a performing and recording artist with her husband, Jeff. She is the author of more than a dozen novels, including The Last Jedi: Star Wars (Star Wars: Coruscant Nights―Legends) with Michael Reaves (Lucas Books, 2013). Her short fiction has appeared in such magazines as Analog, Interzone, Baen's Universe and Amazing Stories. Maya was a finalist for the John W. Campbell Best First Novel Award in 1990 and is a founding member of Book View Cafe―a publishing collective of professional authors established in 2008 on the theory that you can never have too many books. All three authors reside in California: Marquez in West Hollywood, Schenk-de Michele in Toluca Lake with her husband of twenty-two years, and Bohnhoff with her family in San Jose.

Review:

“A worthwhile jaunt for readers interested in a mix of magic, mankind, and the sinister ploys of the devil.” – Kirkus Reviews
