An occult thriller short story set in the Vestige World.
The last thing Thaena needs right now is to look after her new sister.
After all, she’s a half-demon who is hundreds of years old. She’s known many highly skilled sisters over the centuries—pirates, politicians, spies—and the bungling, teenage Vex is nowhere in their league.
Right now, Thaena has her claws full dealing with a cult that threatens to sunder the boundaries between the mortal and supernatural worlds at the Dark Emperor’s own castle (and the city’s most popular tourist attraction).
When Vex tries to ‘help’, things get messy fast.
Thaena needs to deal with the cult, the ire of her demonic patron, and the fraying relationship with her sister before Rule One is broken forever.More info →
High school’s out for the class of 1983. Forever.
The last thing Lukie remembers is the farewell party in her hometown of Breakwater Bay. A final blowout before she went away to university.
But when she wakes up, corpse-cold, confused and weirdly hungry she finds the sleepy coastal village is now full of strange cars and loud tourists. Her family home is a block of flats and she can’t find her father. Her best friend has aged twenty years in a single night.
The sole fact she knows for sure is that someone hurt her. Someone betrayed her. Someone killed her.
In some dark lonely place, she made a pact with something, and now she’s only got until dawn to find her murderer, or when the sun rises she’ll be dead again. Forever.More info →
