As Expected, Very Good

Lindsay Buroker is one of my favorite authors, and nobody does dragons as well as she can. Val Thorvald, a result of her mother falling in love with an elf about forty years ago, is in business as a private contractor to the US Army as an assassin/exterminator of magical creatures who step outside the boundaries of the legal system. Earth, after an exodus of magical types over a hundred years ago, is starting to see a surge in them returning. Along with them, returns something that hasn't been seen on Earth for hundreds if not a thousand years, a dragon. A dragon who quickly becomes a royal pain to Val, as he has decided that she would serve him well as bait in his search for magical criminals on his list. Problem is Val is not in the mood to be anyone's servant or slave. The author always delivers a well written story with a huge dose of humor to it, and 'Sinister Magic' is no exception. Excellent first book in what hopefully will become a series. Looking forward to the next book, and the many more to come. Strongly recommended if you like impossible dragons and snarky, hardworking heroines.
