Emerging Magic, Sentinels #2 by Angela Benedetti
Rory's mother took him to psychiatrists, let them circumscribe his life, let
them give him drugs, while knowing all along there was nothing wrong with
him. When Rory finds out, he's angry and confused and just wants to get away
for a while. His mother's betrayal plus another kidnap attempt make a visit
to the father he hasn't seen in ten years seem like a great idea.
When Rory, Paul and Aubrey get to Seattle, though, it's obviously not going
to be just a normal family Christmas. Someone north of San Jose tried to
kidnap Rory twice before they left, and it's too much of a coincidence that
Nathan, Rory's dad, has magic talented friends. While Rory tries to
reconnect with his only other family, Paul is trying to figure out whether
anyone in Nathan's group is after Rory. They definitely have secrets, and at
least one of them has been playing around with things he doesn't understand.
The local fey are after him, and elves aren't known for caring too much
about collateral damage.
And there's a master wizard in the area who's up to something big and would
really like to have Rory's help....

Cal's Candied Bacon
Lay your bacon strips out on a cooling rack set inside a baking sheet. Cal
likes thick-sliced bacon, but you can use the thin strips if you really want
to. Leave at least half an inch between them.
Coat each strip with brown sugar. (Your hands are going to get messy here;
just deal with it 'cause it's worth it.) You want the sugar layer to be
thin but still cover well, with as little meat showing through the sugar as
Broil at least four inches from the broiler element, keeping an eye on the
bacon. You want the sugar melted but not burned when you take the pan out.
Let it cool before eating -- be careful of the hot sugar!
