Patti O'Shea blurbs IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR (yes, HOUR, not HOUSE) as:
When a troubleshooter for a society of magic users rescues a private investigator from a dark spell, she finds more than an ally as she faces down her former mentor IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR.

THE PRIVILEGE OF THE SWORD is a sort-of-sequel to SWORDSPOINT, taking place some 20 years after the first novel, and narrated by Alec's teenage niece. It will be published by Bantam Books in August, 2006.
