Welcome, reader….

I’m Kell Shaw, writer of immersive urban fantasy stories.

Check out the short story below to see if my world and writing are your cup of tea.

The Feral Library

There are few magical librarians left in our modern world. Not because there’s a shortage of individuals who’d like to care for secret collections and forbidden tomes, but because most of the enchanted libraries that survived the end of the Age of Magic have gone feral.

Latest Release: Final Night

Recently risen from the grave, Lukie has until dawn to avenge her death. If only she could remember who murdered her. And only if someone else doesn’t kill her again.

A book cover for 'Final Night', depicting a pale, blonde woman late at night, framed in moonlight in front of an old muscle car.

My current collection, the Vengeance Business, is available if you subscribe to my newsletter.

The book cover to the 'Vengeance Business', which shows the protagonist, Thaena, standing in front of a city scape. She's wreathed in magical flames that are protecting her.

The Vengeance Business

When you want vengeance, who do you summon?
Thaena Ashmore, half-demon assassin.
She’s been in the business for centuries.

In this devilish collection, Thaena Ashmore seeks to balance her duty to the ancient laws of the Netherworld with the concerns of living in the modern age.

In “The Vengeance Business”, a battered housewife makes a diabolical pact to flee her husband, but is that what she really wants?

In “No Way Out”, one of Thaena’s targets is back from the dead as a living corpse. The only way to stop him is to make a dangerous bargain with a monster slayer–an individual with the power to kill Thaena as easily as the revenant she seeks to destroy.

If you have a taste for villains receiving their comeuppance, or want to explore what lurks in the infernal corners of the Vestige World, then this is the collection for you.

You’ll get this collection, regular short stories, and news when you join the Labyrinthine Library.
