About The Book

The second in a trilogy of three shorts from the “exhilarating…powerful and entertaining” (The Guardian) contemporary fantasy writer Jeff Somers, featuring the blood magician duo from the inventive and darkly comic We Are Not Good People.

Buddies Lem and Mags, the con men stars of We Are Not Good People, return in Last Best Day in a gripping race against time. After Lem is taken hostage by a powerful mage, Mags find himself abandoned and abused by people he had once thought were friends. Without his partner in crime, he consistently loses control of his dangerous temper, leaving a trail of new enemies behind him.

With no other choice but to cast a dangerous and potentially life-changing spell with blood magic, Mags attempts to track down Lem and keep them both safe. But all magic comes with a price, and Lem and Mags face the most perilous challenge of their lives.
