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
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.

★★★★★"Ms Hunter's development of the characters in her book is so satisfying. Sky is a heroine you'd quite like to meet."
Life—or rather, death—is coming at me fast. I definitely didn’t expect a demon placing a bounty on me to be added to the what-the-hell-else-could-go-wrong Bingo card.
Adding to my problems, the two men in my life are pushing me to make a choice that could not only cost me a friendship but a valued ally.
What do I do when: one of the most powerful beings in the world wants me dead, I’m out of my depth in unknown magic, and my allies could become my enemies?
I’ll do what I always do when I’m against the ropes or cornered—fight harder.
Because there is only one option: Survive.
Supernaturals are out of the closet but I have to stay hidden because of the type of magic I possess. I’m a Legacy. It sounds like the title should come with reverence, a trust fund, or at the very least a cool backstory—instead it comes with a death sentence.
I have to hide in plain sight and pretend to be just human. I’m pretty good at it. I live a simple and somewhat normal life, and I work in antique acquisitions. Everything’s going fine until a dangerous and enchanted dagger that was once in my possession is stolen. I didn’t think things could get any worse until I woke up next to a dead shifter, fae, and mage, without any memory of the past twenty-four hours.
Considered guilty of murder by most of the magical community and humans, I must work with Gareth, the sexy and dangerous leader of the Supernatural Guild. If he’s as good as rumored, it’s only a matter of time until he discovers the truth about me—then being found guilty of murder is the least of my worries.
This series is perfect for readers looking for edge-of-your-seat action, mystery with unexpected twists, a witty, kick-butt heroine, and a flirty slow-burn romance.
★★★★★"I enjoyed the story twist on magic. Great strong female character with just the right amount on snark and sass."
★★★★★"Original with plot twists that kept me turning the pages long after I was supposed to turn off the light to go to sleep.”
★★★★★"Great kick-ass heroine, fascinating supernatural world, hunky shapeshifter; what's not to like?"
They say never make a deal with the devil, but what about with his son?
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 Dark 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 all 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’ll tell you: Everything.
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.
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.
My life has never been simple—and it only keeps getting more complicated. The Alphas, Ethan, and several key players in the otherworld go missing, thrusting me into the position of Elite Alpha and tasking me with finding them. The list of suspects grows as I realize that mating with Ethan has caused allies to become enemies. Will I locate the missing in time or will I be the last Alpha standing?
I don’t know who I can trust. Too many people want me dead, including a new group of witches who want to rid the world of were-animals, especially those who can wield magic like me and Ethan.
Adding to the problems is a new group of vampires, who would do anything necessary to gain control of the Northern Seethe and the power it holds over the Midwest, including hurting the people I love. There’s no way I’m going to let that happen. But will my life be the cost for their protection?
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?
Our secrets have been exposed and now we have to deal with the consequences: Friends of the Midwest Pack are missing. Alliances are forming between enemies whose sole intent is to destroy the pack. And a mysterious group is trying to make a power grab using any means possible.
With my pack and our allies in danger, I don’t think things can possibly get any worse. I’m wrong.
The spirit shade that I’ve hosted all my life awakens—vengeful and powerful—and uses me to cast a dark spell over all were-animals. If I can’t find a way to reverse it, they will die.
Just survive. That’s been my goal since uncovering a dangerous secret: I died at birth and became host to a very powerful spirit shade. Now I have the rare ability to manipulate magic—an ability some would kill for.
Needing to lie low, I declined membership in the Midwest Pack, the most powerful pack in the country, under the foolish impression that I could just return to my normal life. I was wrong.
After a number of attacks on the pack and the vampires, where I risk my life to protect the members, it becomes apparent that the Midwest Pack and their rivals, the Northern Seethe, are under siege. I’m linked to the attackers and the pack wants my help in finding those responsible. Reluctantly I’m drawn back into the pack’s world and their golden rule: Protect the pack at all costs.
To find the person responsible, I must work with the Seethe’s hunter, Chris. She should be a welcome asset with her connections and extensive knowledge of the otherworld, but her turbulent history with the Seethe and Midwest Pack only causes more conflict between the enemies-turned-allies.
Once again, I must navigate the lies, secrets, and strange politics that govern the otherworld while struggling not to draw attention to my abilities. Will I be able to find the culprits—and get out alive?
Darkness Unchained (Sky Brooks Series, Book 2) is written from Sky’s point of view (first person) and Chris’s point of view (third person). Midnight Falls (Sky Brooks Series, Book 3) is written from only Sky’s perspective.
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.
