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"
"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
