At least I hope THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC will! Today might be Friday the 13th, but it’s a lucky day around here! Besides, what better day to release the first installment of my new Urban Fantasy series, The Penumbra Papers?
Welcome to the world of the Penumbra Papers. These “Cases from the Shadow’s Edge” explore the forces of light and dark as they dance through shadows humans barely glimpsed prior to the Big Rip. Since then, all manner of preternatural magicks intermingle with humans in ways mysterious, magical and, in some cases, criminal. Much to humanity’s surprise, there really are monsters under the bed and the things that go bump in the night are bigger and scarier than anyone ever imagined.
That’s where Special Agent Sade Marquis enters the mix. A human FBI agent with an X-Files mentality, Sade’s been handpicked to fill a new slot within the Bureau—Preternatural Liaison Officer with the MAGIC Unit. The Magical Activity, Grievances, and Inhuman Crimes unit is in charge of investigations involving magicks. It’s her job to deal with all the monsters.
In THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC, Sade, along with her FBI partner—and werewolf best friend—Caleb Jones, is sent to New Orleans to investigate the murders of several high-ranking magicks. The Big Easy is neutral territory so Sade must find and arrest the culprit before war breaks out between the Realms. Things look up when the gargoyle Sentinel, Roman, a permanent fixture in Sade’s childhood, arrives to keep the peace. Maybe.
The investigation is hampered by Sade’s faerie nemesis, Ariel—the King’s Seducer. Oh, and then there’s the new dragon in town, Nikolas Constantine. Sade can’t decide whether to arrest his ass or admire it.
When guilt and innocence come to play in the French Quarter, it’ll take Sade’s brand of crazy to sort it all out.
