Switchblade Goddess is a direct sequel to Shotgun Sorceress and features the continued adventures of Jessie, her familiar Pal, Cooper Marron, and The Warlock.

Here's the back cover copy for the book:

When Jessie Shimmer traveled to a nightmare underworld to save her lover, Cooper Marron, she gained magical powers ... which soon seemed more like curses. Her beloved familiar, the ferret Pal, became a monster. Her enemies multiplied like demons. Worst of all, she hasn't found a moment of peace to be with the man she adores.

Now a switchblade-wielding demigoddess commanding a private hell stocked with suffering innocents is after her. The blademistress' vengeance sends Jessie and Pal on a dark journey through strange, perilous realms. Their quest for salvation will push her newfound abilities - and her relationship with Cooper - to the breaking point ... and beyond.

"This book is highly recommended to fans of the first two novels in the Jessie Shimmer series ...."
Fresh Fiction

"(A) fast-paced, dark-edged romp"
LOCUS

"Snyder injects this edgy urban fantasy with an erotic charge and a horrific flavor, creating a space where sex and terror coexist and no comfort zone is within sight." (read more)
Publishers Weekly

"(A)n awesome ride ... plenty of horror, action, and finally some tender relief to bring the story to a satisfactory end. I loved this latest installment to the Jessie Shimmer series and am absolutely thrilled to hear that there could be more to come!"
Night Owl Reviews

"(A) darkly compelling story."
RT Book Reviews

"(W)here this book -- and the entire series, actually -- really shines is in its characters. Not just the main characters, not just Jessie, Cooper, Pal, the Warlock, and Miko, but minor characters and walk-on parts often have some really fun, vibrant personalities that make you wish there were other novels that would follow what else these people were up to."
Hero Sandwich

"Lucy Snyder attacks the page with the raw, manic intensity of an early Sam Raimi. This book is funny, profane, and insane in all the best ways.  I can't wait to see what Jessie Shimmer will get into -- and possibly blow up -- next."
Seanan McGuire
