About McKenzie Hunter
McKenzie Hunter is the author of urban fantasy, dark fantasy, and paranormal romance books. She discovered early that new adventures were just a page-turn away; all she had to do was read a book. She’s had her share of escapades from hanging out with vamps, joining the chaos of shifter packs, creating spells with witches, and avoiding deals with the fae.
When she isn't working on her next book, she’s reading, binge-watching TV, or disappearing into her own world during nature walks (probably on the lookout for magical beings—or maybe not).

Maybe it’s not a dumpster fire, but it is a hot mess.
That said, I’m good at my job. Anytime a curse goes wrong, a magical object is lost, or a rogue supernatural needs apprehending, I’m the person you call.
My new assignment is supposed to be simple: Just find a coveted magical object. Instead my client is abducted, I’m pulled into the underbelly of the magical world, and a spell is cast on me that reveals a mark of the raven.
Now I’m being hunted by the people I used to hunt. I’ve piqued the interest of the magical elite. And I don’t know who wants me as an ally and who wants me dead. I have to fix this.
Because if I don’t, I won’t survive.

"This book was phenomenal! If you're a fan of Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series or Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires series, you will LOVE this one! It's action-packed with a kick-butt heroine, supernatural powers, and solving a mystery for the greater good." ~Rainey Day Blog
"This book has great characters, a good story that promises much more to come, great pace, action, humor, and definitely some sexual tension. " ~Goodreads Review
"Every single character is shrouded in mystery and it made for quite the thrilling ride. This is an incredible start to a new UF series and a breath of fresh air in a genre that seems saturated with the same recycled formulas." ~Goodreads Review
Fresh off a breakup and an eviction, I started my day like any other: a book in one hand, a coffee in the other, and faking that can-do attitude inspirational memes are made of. I was ready to take on the world—and I did.
Unfortunately, it was the Underworld.
One freak accident later, I’m standing face to face with the sexy-as-sin and dangerously powerful Prince of the Underworld. He has a few burning questions for me—like how a mere human unlocked the door to the Underworld’s prison and released its prisoners.
I’d sure as hell like to know, too, because I have no freaking clue.
Now, instead of a forgettable bookstore clerk, I’m newly famous for doing the impossible. The wrong people want to thank me, and the rest want me dead. Spoiler alert: The Dark Prince definitely doesn’t want to thank me.
I’ll do anything to get my life back to normal and he’ll do anything to recapture the escapees. We make a deal: He’ll keep my enemies at bay, and I’ll find a way to return the prisoners.
What could possibly go wrong?
I’m a Legacy—a secret I’d planned on taking to my grave. Gareth, the enigmatic leader of the Supernatural Guild, knows it, but can I trust him to keep it? When mysterious deaths occur as a result of magic that mimics my own, I no longer have to worry about Gareth exposing me – it will be one of my own that does. Another Legacy is causing the chaos, and I’m forced to hunt my own kind. It seems simple, but we’ve existed for as long as we have because we’re better hunters than prey.
I’m forced to work with Gareth to clear my name and find the Legacy responsible. Not only is my secret about to be revealed—so is his. Gareth is much more dangerous than I expected. Is he my friend or my enemy?
Well, I already know day drinking isn’t the answer. And Mephisto, with his increasing interest in me and my magic, isn’t either. But what is?
The secrets behind the mark keep unfolding, revealing that I’m more dangerous than anyone ever suspected and that I’m the only person preventing the demise of several powerful and dangerous magical beings. Some people want me as an ally and others simply want me dead—and I have no idea who’s on my side.
My plan to discover who my allies are and stay away from Mephisto goes to hell when my best friend performs an archaic and illegal spell that unleashes a fae with animancer magic.
I tend to play fast and loose with a lot of rules. In fact, most of them I simply ignore. But there are some that should never be broken, and the one at the top of that list? Don’t ever put the shifters in danger.
My best friend just broke that cardinal rule.
Whether friend or foe, I need Mephisto’s help to recapture the fae, and make sure the shifters don’t retaliate.
I’ll do anything to save my friend—even make a deal with the devil.
With the threat of a magicless world, the prince’s life in danger, my loved ones at risk, and the impending destruction of the underworld, we’re in for a hell of a fight.
This time, however, my goals don’t align with the prince’s and he isn’t my strongest ally. It turns out we’re each other’s greatest weakness.
After he discovers I’m more than just a mere human who’s had a streak of bad luck, my escape becomes a game of survival. I’m warding off assassination attempts and caught in the crossfire of a ruthless political battle.
I’ll do anything to escape the underworld, including making another deal with the Dark Prince. But with what he’s discovered about me, can he be convinced I don’t belong here or some place worse?
My best friend has been abducted by a madman who seems to have returned from the dead with the sole goal of seeking revenge against me. She’s my friend, but she’s also essential in finding a cure for a virus that has the potential to destroy the supernatural world.
Did I mention there’s a war brewing between supernaturals and humans? My people, the Legacy, were responsible for the first supernatural war, and now I’m tasked with preventing the second.
I’ve been outed as a Legacy and there’s nothing I can do but deal with the aftermath. I thought I could handle it—I was wrong. The city is in chaos, and I have more enemies than allies. Some that I once called allies have quickly become my betrayers.
Just when I didn’t think things could get any worse, Conner resurfaces and he’s ready to make everyone pay. Especially me. He’s the least of my worries: a supernatural assassin has been brought in to kill all the Legacy—and he’s good at his job. One by one we are being killed off. Gareth, my only true ally, has his own problems dealing with another group that is set on ridding the world of supernaturals. Unless I can get the assassin before he gets me and Gareth can stop an organization bent on xenophobic destruction, we don’t stand a chance in hell of surviving this.
What’s waiting for me on the other side? A bloodthirsty god who wants to kill me—did I mention it’s my mother? An unforgiving fae who doesn’t care that we’re related and wants me gone, at any cost. And I have a debt to repay to the city’s most notorious vampire, who I gave the finger to—literally—during our last encounter. But I’m sure all is forgiven. Right?
My life is hell.
The Midwest Pack has three goals: Protect the pack. Protect the pack. And yeah, protect the pack.
I have my own goal: Live a simple life and hope no one ever discovers that the quiet young woman next door turns into a wolf.
All my efforts go up in flames when a vampire attack draws the attention of the Midwest Pack. The next thing I know, I’m staring down Ethan, a handsome and alluring alpha, as he demands to know what I am. Not who. What.
The pack was warned that I’m not just a werewolf but a weapon—one that could be used against them. A weapon? Me? I’d love to dismiss it as a case of mistaken identity, but I’ve become the supernaturals’ Most Wanted overnight. The vampires have put a bounty on my head. A necromancer attempts to kill me in a room full of people. And a mysterious witch is watching me far too closely for comfort.
The only thing standing between me and certain death is the pack, but we’re definitely not on the same page. I want to lie low, go back to my typical life, and live to fight another day, while their MO is “seek, confront, and destroy.”
And depending on the answers we find, the enemy they destroy … might be me.

He’s a wildcard. But with so many people wanting me dead, I need all the friends I can get.
My life is quickly becoming a cornucopia of crap, and I don’t need any more enemies or any more trouble. Yet, somehow, I manage to get both when the most powerful vampire in the city hires me for a job.
At first, it seems simple enough. All I have to do is negotiate the acquisition of a weapon that can kill his kind faster than a stake to the heart—without betraying my client or pissing off a vampire, especially the Master of the City.
Of course, being the overachiever that I am, I unintentionally betray my client and piss off the Master of the City.
Now I have a mere seventy-two hours to fix my mistakes, or the Master will claim my life as payment for my failure. And he’s made it clear there won’t be any renegotiations.
