Scorching Magik Release February 1, 2023
Supernatural Unrest. Dying Vampires. False accusations.
The night is no longer safe for many of the supernatural races. Unrest percolates through the supernatural underground as Vampires begin falling dead from immolation in very public places. None of this should be Ava’s problem, but when the head of a local vampire clan comes knocking on her door accusing her best friend, Nadia, of these deaths, Ava has no choice but to get involved.
Nadia Abreu has earned a reputation for being mysterious and dangerous. A trained dancer, and professional pain in Ava’s ass, Nadia loves and embraces her Fire Magik, and she’s not shy about showing it off to other supernatural creatures. She’s been lying to Ava, and it kills her, but it’s the only way to keep her friend safe.
Can Ava and The Black Cauldron Detectives find the actual killer and prove her best friend’s innocence? Or will the truth be something darker than Ava bargained for?
