Ever Strange (Legal Magick 1)
Someone’s putting deadly magick into street drugs… and it’s killing people all over Chicago. PRE-ORDER NOW! Releases March 5, 2019.
I’m a monster who hunts other monsters.
There’s a reason the FBI sends me undercover with the worst drug cartels in the world—my magick is as illegal and dirty as the enhancers they pedal. Just the kind that “Pennies” Machnik—Dziki crime lord—likes to use on his enemies. Being his enforcer lets me keep my own monster locked up while I build a case for the FBI’s Magickal Crimes Division. If I can bring Pennies in, maybe I can finally put the stigma of what I am behind me. But when people start overdosing on his street drugs, a beautiful witch storms in, making demands she thinks she can back up with magick. I have to make a split second choice… and the monster comes raging out.
Someone has killed my father.
They made it look like an overdose, but Asher Strange, the world-renown researcher of medical magick, never took an illegal drug in his life… much less tawdry magick enhancers. I run the family empire, but no one was more proud of the Strange family name than my father. A long line of us stretches back to the first days of High Magick—no way he would throw that away chasing a quick high. But before I can get an autopsy, my father’s body disappears… and being a Level One mage and one of the richest women in the city means I will get answers.
Zane’s magick is monstrous, and Ever’s power brings out his beast. But she insists on finding her father, and keeping her safe has suddenly become his job—on top of stopping an epidemic of overdoses that just might be cover for a serial killer. Together, they work to stop the dark magick that’s stalking the streets of Chicago… and try to keep their own secrets from consuming them both.
