My Week in Review 1/6/18-1/13/18


I had a very good reading week and that always makes me happy.  I am excited to have found a couple of new to me authors.  But I am also weirded out a bit at this new trend I have spotted on Kindle Unlimited....it is 'reverse harem' and they are all over the list of available books.  Speaking only for myself, one fella is plenty for me.  :)

Here are the books I want to share with you today:

Blade Song by JC Daniels - 5 Stars *****


Kit Colbana--half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades--has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. 

It should be a piece of cake.So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters--especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.Or maybe it's all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she's gotten in over her head. Or maybe it's because if she fails--she's dead.

If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she'll even live long to collect her fee...

Midnight Star by Karpov Kinrade - 4 Stars ****


I was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, until I sold my soul to save my mother. Now, I am forced to choose between my heart and my conscience.

Either way, someone I love will die.

The Dumbass Demon by Gary Jonas - 4 Stars ****


My old man sics a nuisance demon named Kevin on me to force me to grow up and stop being a slacker. The only way I can expel the jerk is to develop magic I create and control. Until then, Kevin plans to push me, prod me, and annoy me into action.

It's one thing to miss a few naps, but Kevin shoves me into a dispute between a Greek god who wants to be a rock star and some hot women I thought were just myths, but make wonderful music together. Now I have to learn magic or the only nap I'll be taking is a dirt nap.

Gambit by JC Staudt - 4 Stars ****


My name is Cade Cadigan, and in a city where supernatural creatures hide in plain sight, I'm the only human I know with the power to keep them in line. I've always been able to keep my wizarding ways a secret - until now. Someone's after me, and I'm about to blast my way through a dangerous world of monsters and magic to find them...

The Red Queen by K N Lee - 3 Stars ***


Graduating highschool was a piece of cake. Try surviving a college where fairies make up the cheerleading squad, doorways open to other worlds, and finals are life or death. Literally.

Welcome to Wonderland University.

Wizards. Warriors. A magical adventure into a paranormal world awaits.

Iracebeth has four years until she sits on the throne as the Red Queen of Wonderland. But, four years with her arch nemesis, Alice proves to be more of a brutal eternity when her life starts to systematically fall apart. Did she have to steal her boyfriend, friends, and every hope for happiness?

For once, Beth is tired of being the perfect princess. This year, she's going to fight back. Poor little Alice has no idea what's coming.

I hope you are reading something wonderful.  If you have any book suggestions for me, please leave a comment.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

My Week in Review: 12/30/17-1/6/18




Here we are, a brand new year.  I am so excited to see what great reads I can find.  I'm looking forward to trying new to me authors as well as reading more from my faves.

These are the books I want to share with you today.

Brimstone: V Plague Book 16 by Dirk Patton - 5 Stars *****


Left behind as the nerve agent is released in Sydney, John must find a way to survive and escape the city as it descends into chaos.

Dead: Snapshot: Portland, Oregon by TW Brown 
4 Stars ****


Meet Ken Simpson, a retired police officer, Rose Tinnes, a newly divorced woman trying to get her life back in order, and Jason Edwards, a man recently paroled and looking forward to his freedom. These three people form the nucleus of an unlikely group who will struggle to survive as their city falls to the undead.

As the city of Portland, Oregon spirals into hellish chaos, it is not just the walking dead that prove to be a problem. In a world suddenly stripped of any order, it might be the living that pose the greatest threat.

Dead: Snapshot: Leeds, England by TW Brown
4 Stars ****


Dateline: Leeds, England--Reports have flooded in about the dead returning to life and attacking the living. These reports are confirmed and all citizens are warned that there may not be any immediate help forthcoming...

When all order is stripped away, what direction will normal people take in the end? Shadiyah Kasim has witnessed a brutal attack on her sister, she seeks vengeance. Not on the dead that are wiping out humanity, but on the living that harmed her sister.

Simon Wood was about to start a life as a police officer. His sister died after what seemed like little more than a scratch inflicted by an attacker that she had dismissed as nothing more than a crazed scratter.

When the dead take over, two people are left to decide in what direction they will travel with what remains of their lives. Do the old definitions of "Good and Evil" still hold true?

Dead: Snapshot: Liberty, South Carolina by TW Brown
4 Stars ****


Welcome to Liberty, South Carolina-Population 3,070. "Where neighbors become friends."

Located in the northwest corner of the state, it is just a small town like any other you might find in the United States. Then the dead rise and attack the living.

As the nation and the rest of the world falls to this terrible apocalypse, the people of Liberty come together and decide to stand against the tide of undeath and lawlessness that spreads so fast. They quickly discover that the zombies are only a very small part of the problem.

Will the men and women of Liberty, South Carolina be able to unify against all the forces which seek to drag them kicking and screaming to the pits of Hell? And what price are they willing to pay in order to ensure their own survival?

Junkyard Druid by M D Massey - 4 Stars ****


A cursed druid, blackmailed by a faery queen to find a missing magic rock. Let's just hope they don't hack the druid off... for everyone's sake.

Name's Colin McCool. Folks call me the Junkyard Druid. I hate that name.

Despite my last name, I'm not "cool" like the other hunters in town. I don't run an occult bookstore, I've never owned a Harley, and I didn't inherit a family fortune passed down through generations of hunters before me.

And I kind of have this curse on me that's messed up my life.

So, things have gone to hell since I was cursed. I live in a junkyard, my mentor Finn is a heroin addict, I've got the Cold Iron Circle breathing down my neck, and the local Fae Queen Maeve is blackmailing me into doing her dirty work.

Now I'm in way over my head trying to retrieve Maeve's stolen magic rock, all while helping my friend Belladonna solve a series of murders that may or may not involve the local werewolves.

And did I mention that my girlfriend is a ghost?

If I can just get the Faery Queen's tathlum back, and help Belladonna solve the murders...

Then I just might live long enough to finish my first year of college.

V Games by Caroline Peckham - 4 Stars ****


LAST ONE TO THE GRAVE, WINS.

Being a killer wasn't what eighteen year old Selena Grey ever expected she'd become. But with her stepfather's blood fresh on her hands, she finds herself walking into an eight by six prison cell where she'll live out the next twenty five years of her life.

Or so she thought...

When a man as beautiful as he is terrifying walks into the prison, Selena is the only one seemingly unaffected by his charms. But Varick's impossibly dark eyes are trained on her and her alone, frightening Selena of what his presence forewarns. It's not long before she finds out as she wakes on a ship in the dead of night, a captive of the forbidding Varick who seems more beast than man.

But when she arrives at a barren and isolated island in the stormy north sea, she soon realises that the obnoxious Varick may be her only hope of survival. Because, in a place where polar night reigns for the next six months, a powerful and cruel family are about to start this year's season of the V Games. And Selena is marked to participate in the blood sport, hunted by ravenous vampires and surviving the harsh terrain of the bleak island. And, not only that, but Selena just became the highest bid on contestant in a century...

Those are my first reads of 2018, I'm pretty pleased.  :)  I hope you are reading something great.

As always, thanks for stopping by.

My Week in Review: 12/24/17-12/30/17


I read a couple of new to me authors that made me very happy.  I can't wait to read more in their respective series.  Can you believe the new year is upon us?  I am so excited for what 2018 will bring.

Here are the books I want to share with you today:

Zombie Road III: Rage on the Rails by David A Simpson 
5 Stars *****


The finale of the Zombie Road tale. It's been a month since the outbreak and the survivors of the zombie apocalypse have started a new life in a walled city. There are still a few enemies that need to be dealt with, the kind that can think and plan, and they can be more devastating than a horde of the undead.

The Foul Mouth and the Fanged Lady by Richard Raley
4 Stars ****


My name is King Henry Price.

Yes, really. Don’t blame Mom, she was already a little Anima Mad by the time I was born. See, world ain’t as simple as you mundanes think it is. Whole lot more complicated, whole lot more messy, whole lot more foul.

Got your Vampires, not the sparkly pretty boys you’re expecting from romance covers, but blood parasites living in a human shell. Just waiting to cut your skin open and suck you dry from the inside out. Got your Weres, not a hunk among them and gangsters and thugs every one, transform into whatever the idiot first made their Totem decided to sacrifice, be it coyote, wolf, tiger or even your momma’s Shih Tzu.

Last, you got your mancers. That’s my group of misfits and malcontents. I first heard of the Mancy when I was fourteen. Smiling blond woman came to recruit me and I was insistent I was going nowhere. But when she walked on through my locked bedroom door like it wasn’t there, even a jaded, pugnacious, teenage punk like King Henry Price had to give the sales pitch a second thought.

Got trained, seven years at the Institution of Elements, or the Asylum as the student body calls it. I’m a geomancer, special kind of geomancer called an Artificer even. After graduation I made a deal with that same recruiter and opened my own Artificer shop, making magical items of power for all comers, be they Were, Vampire, or Mancer.

What I didn’t sign up for was a vampire named Annie B coming into my shop and kidnapping me. Never trust the pretty ones, especially the pretty ones want to eat on you.

The Protector: Men of the North by Elin Peer - 4 Stars ****


400 years in the future, men are few and women rule the world.

Except for the area formerly known as Canada and Alaska, which is inhabited by the Men of the Northlands, a group of strong men, who refuse to be ruled by women.

Christina Sanders, an archeologist and professor in history, is fascinated with the past. As a modern woman of year 2437 she knows that women are better off without men, but longing for an adventure, she makes a spontaneous decision and volunteers for a job no one else wants. Now she’s going to lead an archeological excavation in the Northlands, the most secluded place on earth where the mythical males live who are rumored to be as brutal and dangerous as the men Christina has read about in her history books.

What will happen when Christina crosses into the men’s territory? Will they allow her to do her job and is there any way they’ll let her leave again – unharmed?

The Last War by Ryan Schow - 3 Stars ***


Would you let your husband die to save your daughter’s life?

San Francisco is collapsing. The McNamara family is scattered across a failing city. They’re riding the hard edge of a civilization facing extinction and they are far from safe. With the population in rapid decline, life is a death sentence. Not all is lost, though. The McNamara’s are an ingenious, resilient bunch who refuse to take the end of the world lying down.

Desperate to save her family, her life in constant peril, Saint Francis Memorial ER nurse, Cincinnati McNamara, is tackling a new, morally bankrupt reality. As the modern world crumbles before her eyes, she will fight for a husband who will stop at nothing to protect his family, a teenage daughter who will do anything to forget the horrors she’s survived, and a brother who is fresh out of the military and hardened by a war he just left behind.

Cornered in the killing fields, stuck between three evils and forced to fight, this once ordinary family will attempt the extraordinary: they’ll try to escape a world now backsliding into a nightmarish landscape more reminiscent of the stone ages than the once famed city by the bay.

I hope you are reading something wonderful.  I wish you all the best in the new year.

As always, thanks for stopping by,
Michelle

My Week in Review: 12/16/17-12/24/17


I'm a little late posting - but it was Christmas!  :)  I hope you all had a wonderful time with your family and friends - we did.

Here are the books I want to share with you today:

Dead: End by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****


The journey has been a long one; and through its twists and turns, we have lost some dear friends. Who lives to see the next sunrise? There is only one way to find out.

From the Ashes by Amber Lynn Natusch - 4 Stars ****  


Piper Jones can't catch a break.

After a lifetime of animosity and indifference from the supernatural community, she thought she'd finally found a home with the vampire king’s enforcers. Then the dark and mysterious Merc walks into her life, and it takes a disastrous turn for the worse.


Now under attack by enemies both known and unknown, Piper has little choice but to flee her refuge—and start over in a place few vampires ever go. Rural Alaska seemed to fit the bill, except for Knox and his crew of werewolves. The pack shares a connection with Piper that few of them can explain, and none of them can escape. With time running out for answers, Piper must fight the demons of her past to ensure her future—or die trying.

Magic Runes by Devyn Jayse - 4 Stars ****


Meet Carmen Rebello - Rune Witch, owner of the best magic store in Barcelona, and black sheep of her family.

When Carmen successfully removes a spell from a bewitched human, she never thought she would get ensnared in an ongoing Supernatural Bureau of Investigation case. Her life is already complicated by trying to stay hidden from her powerful family members, Carmen can't afford the attention of joining the investigation but the SBI insist on her involvement. Add an annoying (but hot) SBI agent and her life is getting more difficult by the day. Can she help the SBI without exposing her identity?

Magic Dude by Lee Hayton - 4 Stars ****


Tyler thought the only magic you could cook up in a trailer was meth. Turns out he was wrong.
When a stranger tosses a mysterious stone into Tyler's lap, he doesn't know what’s hit him. The rock is the sole source of magic in the known universe. That'd be awesome if he knew how the hell it worked.

Soon, hordes of evildoers are hot on his heels, seeking the rock’s power at any cost. Suffering from stone-enforced sobriety, Tyler would offload the damn thing if he could. But he can only gift the stone to someone of magical lineage. A gene pool contaminated by miscreants, troublemakers, and fools—and those are just the good guys.

With the help of a warthog and a ten-year-old girl, Tyler must battle against the circling forces of evil. If he can't return the stone to its rightful owner, it might cost him his life, destroy his friends, and (possibly) end the world.

I really enjoyed these books.  I hope you are reading something wonderful!

My Week in Review: 12/9/17-12/16/17


Bleh.  I've been under the weather the last couple of days.  I've grabbed some Alka Seltzer and I'm trying to take care of it before it gets out of hand.  No one wants to feel icky on Christmas.  :)  That zombie series I've been reading is about finished.  It was a fantastic read.  Here are the books I want to share with you today.

Dead: Reclamation by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****


Years have passed since the dead rose and wiped out most of the living. Many survivors have gathered in pockets around the world. Some are bent on trying to restore what once was, others with a mind to create something new and better from the ashes of civilization, and then there are those who now thrive in the hellish chaos of lawlessness.

While the undead currently roam the world in herds that can often stretch for miles and number in the millions, the zombies are no longer the biggest threat to humanity’s continued existence. That distinction has returned to mankind.


Those who are immune to the zombie infection are now either reviled or revered. Some have become human biological weapons, while others are seen as the last hope for the continued existence of the human race. They are a symbol of hope for some...fear to others.

Dead: Blood and Betrayal by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****


The days of being afraid of the walking dead are long since past. While they still prove to be a menace when they are found in massive herds numbering in the hundreds of thousands if not the millions, it is now the living that can be the most terrifying. Humanity is clawing to regain its place, and some will do anything to ensure their own survival...even at the cost of others.

The world is a wide open place and lawlessness abounds. The fate of civilization hangs in a delicate balance. With nobody looking over your shoulder, would you choose good...or evil? The choices made by a few could mean the end of hundreds of lives and reduce the chances that man will outlast the zombie in a world without order.

Mortal Heir by Emma L Adams - 4 Stars ****


Changeling. Thief. Mortal heir in a world of treacherous immortals.

Raine Warren, half-faerie changeling and master thief, wants nothing to do with the family who abandoned her in the human realm as a child. But when Faerie comes knocking, claiming she's descended from Sidhe nobility, she's handed an unexpected legacy. One catch: it comes in the form of a sceptre containing dark power coveted—and feared—by every faerie court, and no instruction manual.

Now her name's on every hit list in Faerie, and the other Sidhe will do anything to take her off the playing field... permanently. Her last hope is to strike a deal with a charming thief with his own agenda and his own plans for the sceptre. On the run from assassins and hunted by the most powerful faeries in both realms, embracing the dangerous magic of Faerie might be Raine's only means of survival.

Strangehold by Rene Sears - 3 Stars ***


Morgan Tenpenny has retreated from her painful, magical past, choosing to live quietly as a guardian of one of the gates between worlds. But her sister Gwen is married to a lord of the High Court of Faerie—and when Gwen asks her to protect her nieces, it's time for Morgan to emerge from her seclusion. The gates to Faerie have inexplicably closed, and no one knows why, not even Falcon, the fae Morgan finds trapped on her side of the gate.

As a devastating illness that only affects magic users starts to sweep through the country, Falcon tells Morgan of a way to reach her nieces in Faerie through a mysterious place called Strangehold—if Morgan can trust that Falcon is all that he seems. But with the Queen of Faerie increasingly defensive of her borders, even their combined powers may not be enough to win them through.

With relations between fae and human falling apart and a deadly illness threatening all of her old colleagues, Morgan finds that her past isn't as dead as she'd thought. She must navigate the threats in time to save her nieces—and just maybe the world.

Silver and Shadows by Tracy Sharp - 3 Stars ***


Demons, vampires and shifters are all in a days work for occult detective, Ezra Silver. But when a cop friend comes to him with a problem of shade demons devouring the locals in the small town of Halfmoon, things get a little hairy. Ezra has his hands full juggling a possession case, an arsonist sorcerer conjuring fire devils, and an unsealed portal into hell letting demonic nasties crawl out.

With the help of a powerful Conjurer, some badass weapons, and a dash of magical talent, can Ezra find and stop the rogue sorcerer from burning up the entire town, and seal the portal before all the demons of hell are unleashed?

There ya have it.  I hope you are reading something wonderful.

My Week in Review: 12/2/17-12/9/17


I am truckin' right on through this zombie series by T W Brown and lovin' every minute of it.  :)  I have a couple of new to me authors lined up for next week and I am excited.  

Here is what I have for you this week:

Dead: Darkness Before Dawn by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****


Winter has gone, but the world is no less inhospitable.

The survivors of this first winter now face some of the darkest and most soul-wrenching choices thus far. From the outskirts of London to an island refuge in Oregon, small groups struggle to build a new life.

Kevin recovers to a realization that shatters his dreams, yet he must stand up and take the role of leader...or die trying. His followers, now largely consisting of juvenile delinquents and society cast offs need him. Can he shake loose from his own misery to be their salvation?

Billy must decide what sort of life he wants to forge. Has he been following blindly and gone down the wrong path? And has Dr. Zahn finally discovered the mystery of the zombie children?

Dead: Spring by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****


Everything hangs by the thinnest of threads. In a DEAD world, nothing is certain and nobody is safe. Friends have fallen, some enemies have been defeated only to be replaced by yet another. As the first year of the zombie apocalypse ends and a new year begins, can a person hope that the coming of spring can be a starting point for re-birth? If not...then what is the point of trying to survive? Fates will be sealed and destinies decided as winter finally fades, the darkness recedes and gives way to...


Lost Girl by Colleen Vanderlinden - 4 Stars ****


Molly Brooks is a telepathic vigilante with a few secrets and a mysterious past. Determined to make something of her bizarre powers, she devotes herself to saving those who need her most. One night, she's followed by a powerful being in a pickup truck, and her world will never be the same. Finding herself thrust into a world full of supernatural beings she could have only imagined, Molly learns how powerful she really is, and how much she stands to lose.

That Ghoul Ava and the Queen of the Zombies - T W Brown
4 Stars ****

Ava Birch killed herself and woke up a ghoul with an attitude and a hunger for the dead.

With no manual and very little help coming from the supernatural community, Ava offers her services to the regional psychic. Her newest job? Apparently zombies have been spotted in a small town nearby.

Ava wades in thinking that this job will be a piece of cake...or at least as tasty. Navigating meddling vampires, bothersome witches, and a peculiar case of memory loss...and now her best friend and human companion has up and walked out.

Things go from bad to worse when Ava discovers that there is a force behind these recent zombie sightings that may date back to the time of the Black Plague.

Sometimes a ghoul would just rather stay in bed...or at least her sound proof basement where nobody can hear you scream.

Hades Daughter by Charlotte Carol - 3 Stars ***


They’re a match made in hell: Reid Brice is the leader of a notorious gang called the Grim Reapers, and Scarlett Hades is the daughter of the lord of the underworld.

Scarlett convinces her father, Hades, to let her live on Earth for a year, as she is bored in Hell. She meets Reid on a weekend at the beach, but this is no ordinary, peaceful, sunny day: Reid and his gang are trying to kidnap a young girl. Scarlett comes to the rescue, and thus begins her entanglement with the Grim Reapers.

Reid pursues Scarlett, drawn by her bravado and her unusual nonchalance in the face of blood and deadly threats. He thinks this is the girl he has been looking for.

Will he still think the same when she reveals her true form to him? Or will he see her as nothing but a monster?

Waking Magic by Martha Carr - 3 Stars ***


Magic. Is. Real.

What if the weird and strange things you saw on the covers of tabloids was real? What if that was just the tip of the iceberg?

Homicide detective, Leira Berens is in a race against a maniacal magical force that wants to rip apart our understanding of reality at the seams.

With the help of a foul mouthed tiny troll, Leira must push beyond her limits to stop a devastating attack of magical proportions and come to terms with the fact that maybe her mother wasn’t crazy. Maybe there are elves, magical realms and things we just can’t explain. 

The stakes are real and so is the magical world she just visited.

With help from unexpected places, Leira is going to accomplish more than she ever thought possible.

That wraps up my reading week.  I hope you are reading something wonderful!

My Week in Review: 11/25/17-12/2/17


I was very excited to try a few new to me authors last week - as well as read the latest in zombie series I've been truckin' through.  These are the books I want to share with you today.

Dead: Reborn by T W Brown - 4 Stars ****


Winter is losing its grip. 

For Billy and the survivors who began the nightmare, the loss of Steve Hobart is devastating, but could they finally be finding a place to truly call home? Kevin resumes his original quest for a safe place in the Badlands of the Dakotas, but with a whole new gang. However, they stumble across another group of survivors and face a new dilemma. Do you try to save others at the risk of those you know and love? 

Around the world, small bands of survivors fight to carve out a place for themselves, whether it is Sauvie Island or the British Isles...the struggle is the same. More horrors await, but with it, the first children of this new world bring hope...

Vaccination by Phillip Tomasso - 4 Stars ****


What if the H7N9 vaccination wasn’t just a preventative measure against swine flu?

It seemed like the flu came out of nowhere and yet, in no time at all the government manufactured a vaccination. Were lab workers diligent, or could the virus itself have been man-made?

Chase McKinney works as a dispatcher at 9-1-1. Taking emergency calls, it becomes immediately obvious that the entire city is infected with the walking dead. His first goal is to reach and save his two children.

Could the walls built by the U.S.A. to keep out illegal aliens, and the fact the Mexican government could not afford to vaccinate their citizens against the flu, make the southern border the only plausible destination for safety?

Grim Tidings by Amanda M Lee - 4 Stars ****


Grim(ace) while you work ...

Aisling Grimlock is having a bad week. Well, actually, she’s having a bad life -- not that she's complaining. Okay, she's totally complaining.

After being laid off from her secretarial position, she has no choice but to join the family business, and now she’s a full-time grim reaper. That’s right. She collects and transfers souls to the hereafter.

Cool, huh? Not quite.

On the second day of her new job, Aisling (literally!) stumbles over a dead body that’s not on her list and the stakes are suddenly raised because, when a name isn’t on the list, that means someone stole it (and that's never a good thing).

Aisling’s family, which consists of a tempestuous father and four overbearing older brothers, are hot on the case – but the answers they’re coming up with aren’t exactly soothing.

It seems a contingent of wraiths have descended on the area, and they’re not just dangerous for unsuspecting souls and the general populace. The Grimlock family is at risk, too.

If that weren’t bad enough, Aisling finds herself inexplicably drawn to Detective Griffin Taylor – the police officer who considers her a murder suspect. Oh, and she's a wraith-magnet -- although, truth be told, she's more interested in Detective Taylor.

Aisling is determined to prove that she has what it takes to be a great reaper – even if it means risking her life and proving her father and brothers wrong when it comes to her competence level.

When things finally become clear, will Aisling survive long enough to make things right? Or, will she fall prey to the wraiths and the individual controlling them?

Seizing Darkness by Mariana Thorn - 4 Stars ****


With her past distant and forgotten Natalya has built herself a nice life. She has a job she finds rewarding as a special agent with the Paranormal Investigation Bureau. Her partner, Dante, isn’t too bad for a bloodsucking vampire. Val, her boss, is like a father to her. Her favorite part is that she lives near the Cascade Mountains. Whenever she needs a little vacation, she can shift into a tiger and go running in the woods. 

Life is good.

That is until recently. Agents are turning up dead and Natalya can’t pin down what is going on. Little does she know that her past is about to come back and bite her in the tail. With no memories before the last year she is a little behind the curve in finding out what is going on. When the investigation turns increasingly dangerous and the attacks more personal, Natalya realizes it’s more than just her own life on the line. Will she find out what is going on before it’s too late?

Devil's Due by Percival Constantine - 3 Stars ***


Half-human. Half-demon. All attitude.

Luther Cross here. Dangerously handsome, effortlessly stylish half-demon, at your service. As I have inherited certain...abilities with my odd genetics, I’ve put them to use as Chicago’s foremost paranormal investigator.

My current case? Well, I have to admit, it feels a little personal. I’m helping a mysterious girl who’s turned up on my doorstep, pregnant through mystic means. I can’t help but think of my own mother…and if I don’t help her, she’ll face the same fate.

Turns out, someone is trying to create an army of half-demons. While it might be a pleasant change to hang out with my own kind, I know most half-demons don’t have my sense of morality. If I don’t stop this evil plan, the armistice between Heaven and Hell will be broken and all of the Earth will pay… It will be the beginning of the end.

There ya have it.  I hope you are reading something wonderful.
