Just ask Pola Drach, Independent Eye. In a city founded by refugees from a dying earth long ago, she pursues dark secrets and exposes the shadowy underbelly of society. Who killed the ambitious model? And was that who she really was? Who’s forcing shopkeepers to buy worthless stock, and circulating funny money? Why is the youngest scion of one of the city’s richest families suddenly a target?
Ned Cooper had made plenty of enemies with his loud vocal attacks on every religion that wasn’t his, but it didn’t seem to Halvar that was enough to justify a knife in the back. Nevertheless, there he is—dead as one of his own barrels. Then Guardsman Zoltan meets a similar fate, and one with even more suspects given his protection racket on the docks and his constant harassment of the women in the souk.
Are these murders personal, or might they be connected to the muskets the captain of the Belle Fleur was smuggling into Manatas? Was Master Albrecht making gunpowder for those guns? Will Halvar still have a job after his contract expires on New Year’s Day?
The intrepid Dane is once again knee-deep in corpses and on the wrong end of pointed weapons. Can he solve all the mysteries before his term of office ends? And what will he do, stuck in Nova Mundum, if someone doesn’t renew his contract?”
Just when Del is starting to learn what being a mother and a part of a family are all about, a shadowy group kidnaps Jordan. They leave a set of instructions that take Del and her partner Marrin to the deserts of northern Nevada on a rescue mission.
There, confronted with myths and legends hungry for blood, Del must face an ancient evil deadlier than anything she has ever encountered. So deadly, she may not survive.

On Earth’s once decimated surface, the last of an ancient people continue to survive. They believe they are the only ones left.
Not far from their mountain home, however, another populace survived the Decline.
Deep within the earth, they toil for their masters in the cavernous underworld called Last Haven. Their only lawful diversion is a gladiatorial blood sport played on ice called Mazeplay.
One man in that underground city believes he and his fellow citizens are being lied to. That the return to the surface they have been promised is being withheld so those in power can remain so. He’s willing to risk his life to prove it. They’ll do whatever they have to, to stop him.
Del, one of the first Nephilim, unwillingly works for the Throne, obeying the commands of the angel Ahadiel. With her partner Marrin, she helps keep the world safe from the horrors of escaped demons. At the same time, she keeps herself in the Throne’s good graces. Whenever a rogue demon breaks free from Hell, Del and Marrin work together to banish it. But her latest assignment may also be her last.
Halvar the Hireling, now the Captain of the Town Guard, must deal with the deaths of a messenger boy and a respected professor of mathematics, both of which may be linked to a shipment of arms being smuggled into Manatas. To make matters worse, a cougar has been spotted in the hills north of the town. Sectarian disputes and personal rivalries make for a not-so-happy holiday for this ex-mercenary and reluctant detective.
It’s not bad enough that Halvar is stuck in Manatas while Don Felipe is off exploring the New World. Now he’s got a dead ship captain on his hands, a nobleman and his virago wife complaining about their living accommodations, and an enemy from his past who claims to be just passing through.
The bodies, though, seem to keep piling up, while the clues continue to be elusive. There’s something rotten going on, but finding out exactly what it is and whose killing people is turning out to be tougher than any job he’s had so far.
