The Left-Hand Way
American Craft series #2
by Tom Doyle
Tor, $25.99, 336pp
Published August 2015

The The Left-Hand Way is the second book of Tom Doyle's contemporary fantasy series following American Craftsman. In Doyle’s alternate history, magic or “craft” has been used to guide the United States to success from Revolutionary times to the present.

Major Michael Endicott embarks on a mission to London for the US Craft Service, a military intelligence agency whose members use magic. Soon his ordinary mission turns into a chase across Europe. Commander Grace Marlow, one of Her Majesty's most lethal magician soldiers, reluctantly joins him. While MI13 has assigned her to mind him, her family and the Endicotts are traditional enemies.

Elsewhere, Endicott's comrades, Scherie Rezvani and Dale Morton, are involved in their own battles against hired assassins and a ghost-powered doomsday machine. And our villain, Roderick Morton, sits in Kiev planning all their destruction.

The action is fast-paced and the character development is good. An added attraction is the allusions to literary works and historical events and figures, though I am sure there are few I missed. As a blend of military and urban fantasy with a dash of spy thriller, this is a series that will entertain readers across a wide spectrum of interests. ~~ Stephanie L Bannon
