Black Magick 3: Ascension I – The walls separating Detective Rowan Black’s worlds of witchcraft and police work have begun to crumble, and the forces targeting her are now revealed. But what they want, why they want it, and what they’ll do to get it will impact more than Rowan alone. As the occult and infernal collide, those closest to Rowan may find themselves consumed as Rowan herself comes to embrace her power.
Nicola Scott provides some great art here, expressive black and white work that features specific,
sparse splashes of color when magick is used. Story-wise, Greg Rucka uses his time-honed skills at writing police procedurals and strong female characters to put together a decent crime/occult combo that promises interesting things to come as Detective Rowan Black struggles to keep her identity as a witch a secret as an occult conspiracy grows around her.
