Rule One

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.
