Shelfari edited the description of Lore vs. The Relic Thursday, March 24, 2011.
Laura “Lore” Denham’s exceptional birth has both blessed and cursed her with extraordinary abilities. As the half-divine daughter of the Greek god of Apollo her musical ability is unparalleled. She’s landed her dream job as the principle flutist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. But the darker side of her power is that she can both heal and kill with a touch. In exchange for these abilities she’s vowed to keep the oblivious masses safe from the things that go bump in the night. In the fourth book in the Lore series, Laura must return to her dangerous life after three blissfully uneventful months in the Berkshires for the Tanglewood festival. Boston’s Underground may have accepted the story that the Black Death isn’t the secret organization “Legion” but that hasn’t stopped two new crises from forming. The appearance of a strange black paperweight that can rot flesh in an instant prompts Laura to call on a childhood friend for help. And an assassin in white who is determined to kill her for the challenge alone may alter Laura’s relationship with her divine guide forever. Laura must break some hearts along the way but not without opening hers to love too.
