James A Hunter
Yancy Lazarus is having a bad day: thereâ€™s a bullet lodged in his butt cheek, his face looks like the site of a demolition derby, and heâ€™s been saran-wrapped to a banquet table. He never should have answered the phone. Stupid bleeding heartâ€”helping others in his circles is a good way to get dead.
Just ask the gang members ripped to pieces by some kind of demonic nightmare in LA. As a favor to a friend, Yancy agrees to take a little looksee into the massacre and boom, heâ€™s stuck in a turf war between two rival gangs, which both think heâ€™s pinch-hitting for the other side. Oh, and thereâ€™s also a secretive dark mage with some mean olâ€™ magical chops and a small army of hyena-faced, body-snatching baddies. It might be time to seriously reconsider some of his life choices.
Yancy is a bluesman, a rambler, a gambler, but not much more. Sure, he can do a little magicâ€”maybe even more than just a little magicâ€”but he knows enough to keep his head down and stay clear of freaky-deaky hoodoo like this business in LA. Somehow though, heâ€™s been set up to take a real bad fallâ€”the kind of very permanent fall that leaves a guy with a toe tag. Unless, of course, he can find out who is responsible for the gangland murders, make peace in the midst of the gang feud, and take out said dark mage before he hexes Yancy into an early retirement. Easy right? Stupid. Bleeding. Heart.
The Devil’s Fool
Eve’s power-hungry witch parents will kill at the slightest insult, and Eve’s unwillingness to use her own supernatural abilities is enough to incite them. Boaz, a powerful vampire, may be the only one able to save her, to give her the one thing she’s never had–love. But in Eve’s world, no one is who they seem and everyone has an agenda. And the more she stays with him, the more difficult it becomes to spot the true devils, especially when she becomes one herself.
