A murder in layered time
I'm not a fan of time travel. Especially when it's of the slow variety.
So I find myself in New York City in the roaring twenties where flappers dance to jazz, you can't get a legal drink, and secret societies kill each other for magical dominance.
One cool thing is that I get to meet Esther as a living, breathing woman, but what's not so cool is that my presence could lead to her death.
I have to stop Henry Winslow, who is now at his most powerful, and I have two obstacles who just stepped out of the sands of time: Kelly Chan and her colleague, Jonathan Shade.
The conclusion of the three-volume time travel sequence.
Hunting a dead sorcerer in ancient Egypt
Sharon shows up with a time god named Chronos, and they send me back to ancient Egypt to stop a dead sorcerer named Henry Winslow from getting the Emerald Tablets of Thoth.
No big deal, right? If I can't stop him, the world I know will only be wiped from the sands of time.
But hey, I get to meet King Tut and his hot wife, which is great until Tut is killed and I'm blamed for his murder...
Part one of the three-volume time travel sequence.
You are cordially invited to a murder...
My aunts, Liz and Clara, own a metaphysical bookstore in Cassandra Springs, a small town in Colorado. Aunt Liz thinks she's psychic, and Aunt Clara believes she has a ghost lover named Edward, and a ghost cat named Hannah Rose. I think they're making it up to seem eccentric because I know how things work in the real world.
But when Aunt Liz asks me to attend her annual murder game at Bostwick Manor, she's convinced she's going to be killed for real. It doesn't help that she invites the employees who hate her the most to the weekend retreat, and starts pushing their buttons.
Sure enough, she turns up with a knife in her third chakra.
Now I'm snowed-in with a group of her employees, and one of them is a murderer. My only ally is a Siamese cat named Nico, and let's face it, she mostly wants to be fed. I need to figure out whodunit on my own before the killer strikes again!
Don't miss this first novel in a humorous new cozy mystery series.
Stephen Noble, a rich old guy on the board of Dragon Gate Industries is executed by a clan from another dimension. Since I still owe a favor to the company, they hire me to provide executive protection services to the dead guy's grown kids. Graham and Rayna.
Rayna is hot, so that's all right, but Graham is a jerk. And it turns out they stole a dragon from the Marshall Clan and brought it to Boulder, Colorado.
Yeah, you heard me right. I said dragon.
Now Kelly and I are faced with protecting spoiled rich people from a team of assassins and the blood-hungry beasts they brought with them. Those things will kill anything in their path.
And did I mention the dragon?
The Men of Anubis are coming, and boy are they pissed.
Make a note of this: gods don't appreciate it when you cast one of their brothers into the Void. Who knew?
Now the Men of Anubis are coming, and it's time for the final showdown. To have even a small hope of success, I need to build a team with some heavy-hitters.
My team includes Esther the ghost, the Norse demi-god Thor, Chronos (I don't trust him), and not just one, but two versions of Kelly Chan.
But how can I defeat beings who can warp time? Especially when some of my so-called allies want to see me die?
Zombies, and ghosts, and voodoo queens, oh my
I don't want the case of a missing FBI agent, but he disappeared after asking a New Orleans voodoo queen to bring his dead and cremated wife back to life. So now I'm thinking if Madame Rousseau can hand out new bodies to the dead, maybe she can do the same for my ghost friend, Esther.
Hey, everyone has ulterior motives, myself included. But when bullets fly, and the bodies pile up, who will survive the wild trouble in the Big Easy?
An evil awakens...
Kelly wants to leave me behind, so I need a case to prove to her that we should be working together. A simple ghost from an old New York City asylum seems like just the thing.
Until things go wrong and people start dying because I woke up an evil entity filled with the torment and anguish of the people who died on Ellis Island.
Sucks to be me.
Now, the only way to stop it is to get some help from the Manhattan branch of DGI. But that means dealing with my older sister. She blames me for the death of our parents, so she's more likely to have me run out of town than lift a spell book to help.
What do you do when you've been replaced?
I come home from a vacation to find that another version of me has taken my place. He's living my life. He has my friends. He has my career. And what really sucks is that he's doing it all so much better than I ever could. Everyone loves him!
I'm the real me, but he insists that he's the real me. Not cool. One of us has to go!
Oh, and one more pesky little problem. Someone's trying to kill me.
Magic and murder in the Barbary Coast
Chasing a sorcerer through time sucks. Kelly and I find ourselves in 1877 hunting Henry Winslow in San Francisco's Barbary Coast.
That place is crazy. It's filled with gangs, crimps, thieves, cutthroats, prostitutes, magic, and a supernatural threat.
One thing is certain, we're not getting out of here alive.
Part two of the three-volume time travel sequence.
Cover charge -- one soul
A vampire shows up on my doorstep and I know if he can find me, the Men of Anubis can't be far behind.
To deal with the threat, I need a weapon that can kill a god, so I have to gain access to a special nightclub with an exclusive clientele--gods and other immortals. So what if it costs me my soul?
Between the crazy dead lady with a necromancer for a stalker, and a lovesick goddess, who wants me to turn over her lover, I'm buried in relationship issues.
Dead people won't leave me alone. Zombies, skeletons, anything that can shamble out of a grave, but are they working for the goddess or the necromancer?
One thing's for sure. There are no safe exits from Acheron Highway.
