drey's thoughts:
I love Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville series. So how could Discord's Apple be anything but good?

In a future where the superpowers are at each others' throats and annihilation is more likely than peace, Evie Walker is returning to Hope's Fort because her father is dying. Once there, the world as she knows it starts to fall apart, as the secret of her family's legacy is revealed. Passed from father to oldest child, Evie is beginning to receive her inheritance--the storeroom, with its cache of ageless and magical treasures--in bits and pieces of realization.

However, just as she is getting up to speed, others come a-calling, seeking the storeroom, and one in particular wants her hands on Discord's Apple. Why? Well, to remake the world, of course!

Carrie Vaughn deftly weaves a tapestry of love, loss, jealousy, anger, and mythology alive and well in a modern-day apocalyptic world. The characters will surprise you, the stories will enthrall you, and all through this journey familiar faces (well, familiar if you read, lol!) will lead the way. Pick it up for a surprisingly good read. I'd like to go on that ride again, please.
