BLUEBIRD KILLING IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT by Gary Jonas
THE TALKING WAR by E. Lily Yu
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?
Death by dark magic
As soon as I get over my ex, her father hacks her mother apart with a sword.
She hires me to prove dark magic was involved. Hey, it's what I do as a paranormal investigator, so I get why she thinks I can help.
But my secretary, Esther, a ghost from the 1920s flapper era, and Kelly Chan, my magically engineered protector, are dead-set against me getting involved. With all the deadly magic flying around, they may have a point.
Because the sad truth is, I don't have any magic of my own.
Kelly Chan, the magically engineered assassin, in her first solo adventure!
Picking up a package for a friend should be easy, but when the package is at Tally's, a shop that caters to things that go bump in the night, and that package is a woman, things can go south fast.
Of course, if the person picking up the package is Kelly Chan, when things go south, bad guys die.
But what happens when the bad guys are already dead? Or more specifically, undead.
Kelly finds herself face-to-face with an actual vampire who has the power to issue commands Kelly has no choice but to follow.
So how do you kill something you've been commanded to protect?
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.
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.
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.
Don't miss the previous books in the series:
The Half-Assed Wizard
The Big-Ass Witch
Why would anyone want to kidnap a ghost? And why should I care one way or the other? I prefer power napping to kidnapping.
But when the abductors use the ghost to kill a man in a robbery gone wrong, it's up to me to save the day. As long as I don't have to get up before noon...

Down-and-out bluesman Roy Porter has been living on the streets of Tulsa for years, and he’s seen the pattern of death before. This is no ordinary killer, but a supernatural threat, and Roy knows, odds are, he’s the next victim.
Roy’s only hope is to recruit an aging biker named Jim with a haunted past and blood on his hands. Together they track the killer through the mystic circles of Tulsa. They must face their own weaknesses, their crushed dreams, and their pasts as they race down Death’s highway with a One-Way Ticket to Midnight.
REVIEWS AND BLURBS
"An exemplary debut novel."
--The Rocky Mountain News
"Jonas has written a well-paced trip through the mean streets of Tulsa infused with music and magic."
--The Denver Post
"Leave it to mild-mannered Gary Jonas to quietly slip in a masterpiece first horror novel while so many others are loudly making much ado about nothing. After years of honing his craft on the short form, Gary knows what makes for first-rate fiction."
--Brian A. Hopkins, author of These I Know By Heart
"I loved the character of Howlin' Roy Porter and look forward to buying his CDs."
--Edward Bryant, author of Flirting with Death
