Slaughter in Santa Fe....The body of the nearest victim was on his back. His shirt had been torn open and his chest was mutilated, bloody runic symbols carved into it. But the eyes were what Loomis couldn't stop staring at. They were completely bleached out. They looked like opaque, milky white marbles.With the coming of the Second Thaumaturgic Age, magic has returned to Santa Fe and adept Paul Ramirez has come back to the city of his birth to pass on the old knowledge he has gained from his teacher, the legendary Merlin Ambrosius. However, he soon finds himself helping the police track down a vicious serial killer who is using necromancy to drain his victims of their souls.In way over his head, Ramirez receives help from the unlikeliest of sources: a beautiful cat burglar, a drop-out warlock, a Cockney punk possessed by spirits, and a tough-talking, one-eyed thaumagenetic feline known as Catseye Gomez. But is this peculiar crew enough to stop an evil from the dawn of time?

The Wizard of Santa Fe (Wizard of 4th Street Series #6) based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The runestone bearers may be dealing with a few personal issues (like who gets to wear the body today), but when mutilated bodies start turning up in the peaceful old town of Santa Fe, Kira, Wyrdrune/Modred, Merlin and Broom saddle up and ride to the rescue. With help from a John Wayne-looking ex-Chicago cop, a streetwise cat with a penchant for Mike Hammer novels, and a local college professor, and hindrance from their old pals at the Bureau, Santa Fe just might survive... Maybe because I didn't have rosy memories of reading this installment as a kid, I liked it a bit better than Samurai Wizard. Still a touch wordy, but Gomez, the tough-talking, one-eyed cat was a trip.
