His own problems But not only can't she help him she's the causeWith lives on the line including her own Wren is going to have to break the lonejack credo ditch her long cherished invisibility and take a standBut burning bridges can be dead Our heroine is Wren Valere a talented young woman in her late 20s who is a lonejack a solo magic user raised up in a soloist tradition She works as a “retriever” – essentially a thief with considerable magical talents Someone stole something from you – something magical dangerous powerful? You pay Valere and her “manager” Sergei Didier and she’ll steal it right backNew York City is a vibrant place at any time but in LAG’s world talents those who feel and manipulate current and nulls those who neither feel nor manipulate currentmagic intersect constantly and it’s not always a pretty sight We have the Cosa Nostradamus the fatae who live their own magic the nonhuman griffins piskies dryads etc – and those humans who are either lonejacks of varying power and skills or members of The Council The Council prefers to run everything in its own city They want control of all magic users – but they’ll settle for intimidationAnd then there are the humans who have no magic of their own but know it exists and want to know what’s going on in every nook and cranny of the city Among the most powerful are a group called The Silence They hire lonejacks to work with them their interface staff called “handlers” who manage the “talent”Wren who specializes in never being seen who keeps to herself and avoids all Council and fatae politics slowly finds herself being drawn into the intricate games of The Council and The Silence The fatae hating humans are hunting – and some of them are buried deep within The Silence The Council and Silence have their own traitors and will force the Lonejacks and fatae to either join them or fear them Wren becomes a lightning rod for all that is to come and a spokesperson for a fragile fatae and lonejack alliance that may not survive its first dawnLaura Anne Gilman’s books are intricate and she has a trick of dropping you into her characters’ lives so at first you can’t see the story for the trees shall we say But her work rewards patience For intricate urban fantasy give her books a try There are benefits to starting with the first book but I think they stand alone They do get progressively darker though

Burning Bridges Retrievers #4Acted by internal power struggles Wren is guilted into stepping up as spokesperson for the fragilely united Fatae and lonejack communitiesAnd because the cosmos deems her without enough complications her partner lover Sergei is drowning in Burning Bridges represents a major turning point in the broader story as the battle between the various factions of the Cosa and the Nulls moves from the shadows to outright conflict In the broad scheme this is a good move for the story The book itself unfortunately is somewhat lacking The plot bounces around the writing feels sloppy characters seem to suddenly know things they had no way of knowing a few pages earlier without explanation etc The random retrieval job thrown into the middle of the story serves essentially no purpose beyond reminding us of Wren's occupation Again a good move for the series a bad implementation for the book
