Binding the Shadows by Jenn Bennett. This is the third book in the Arcadia Bell series and comes from TBR mountain. Here is the description from Amazon:
In the third book in this beloved and "riveting" (Romantic Times) urban fantasy series, demon-friendly tiki bar owner Arcadia Bell discovers more about her own evolving, and possibly destructive, magical abilities when her bar is the target of a demonic crime wave.Beginning:
Renegade mage and bartender Arcadia Bell has had a rough year, but now the door to her already unstable world is unhinging. When a citywide crime wave erupts, Cady's demon-friendly tiki bar is robbed by Earthbounds wielding surreal demonic abilities that just flat-out shouldn't exist. With the help of her devilishly delicious boyfriend, Lon Butler, Cady sets out to find the people who wronged her--but her targets aren't the only ones experiencing unnatural metamorphoses. Can Cady track down the monsters responsible before the monster inside her destroys everything--and everyone--she loves? If she survives this adventure, one thing is certain: it's last call for life as she knows it.
I scrambled through the second-story window and balanced on a square section of slanted roofing above a portico on the first floor. Lon followed, biting out obscenities. I'd never seen him move so fast. Fire is a good motivator.Friday 56:
Bob did his healing mojo on Kar Yee, then we knocked her out with some oxycodone he found in his father's prescription drug stash. We figured that was more stable than my home-brewed medicinal.
