War has erupted among the five Old Races, and Margrit is responsible for the death that caused it. Now New York City's most unusual lawyer finds herself facing her toughest negotiation yet. And with her gargoyle lover, Alban, taken prisoner, Margrit's only allies—a dragon bitter about his fall, a vampire determined to hold his standing at any cost and a mortal detective with no idea what he's up against—have demands of their own.

Determined to rescue Alban and torn between conflicting loyalties as the battle seeps into the human world, Margrit soon realizes the only way out is through the fire….

From School Library Journal

Lawyer Margrit Knight is one of the few humans aware of New York City's otherworldy denizens; known as the Negotiator among the Old Races who dwell behind the scenes, she calls upon her allies, a fallen dragon and her vampire employer, when her gargoyle lover is kidnapped and placed on trial by his "peers." While wrapping up many loose ends, the concluding volume of Murphy's Negotiator trilogy (Heart of Stone; House of Cards) leaves open the possibility of future explorations into an urban fantasy that brings some unusual creatures, such as gargoyles, djinn, and selkies, into the modern world. Margrit is a gutsy, resourceful heroine who can walk a fine line between the paranormal and the real world. A good choice for most libraries, with particular appeal to fans of Charles de Lint and Jim Butcher.

From Booklist

African American Hispanic Legal Aid lawyer Margrit Knight, who discovered the existence of the Old Races in Heart of Stone (2007), has been changed by love for the gargoyle Alban and being saved from death by vampire blood. Now Alban, self-exiled from his people to protect a secret, is bound for criminal court, and the strict Old Races trial procedures will open his memories to the tribunal. Margrit fearlessly throws herself into situation after peril-filled situation to avert war among Old Races factions and iron things out with the dragon Janx and her new boss, vampire Eliseo Daisani. The Negotiator trilogy wraps up nicely. --Diana Tixier Herald
