In a gritty urban fantasy world where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires swim free in a sea of humanity, sometimes you need an edge. Looking for a little love? Need some luck? Desperate for revenge? Gage can give you what you need. The most talented tattoo artist in town, he knows the right symbol and the right mix of ingredients and ink to achieve your heart's desire. One tattoo is all it takes. But remember, everything has its price.

The wizards know Gage is using forbidden magic, and they intend to punish him for his transgressions. Too bad if innocent humans and monsters—entire cities—get in the way. They will quell a nascent magical uprising and Gage will be the sacrifice they need. First, though, they have to find him.

Dead Man’s Deal is the second installment in a new urban fantasy series by bestselling author Jocelyn Drake and continues to engage. Similar to Jim Butcher’s Dresden series, the Asylum Tales centers around Gage Powell, a warlock whose personal life choices has left him persona non grata in the wizarding world.
