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 fall 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, killing 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?
Ava Ramos is one furious mage. New York City is her town, and she and her Black Cauldron Detective Agency know every beat of the supernatural underground. Need an object found or secrets uncovered? Ava and her partners are the mages to contact. A former rival, Tasis, shows up with a case proving Ava might not know everything about her town.
The Lauret Grimoire, the oldest known compendium of the supernatural, has gone missing from one of the most closely guarded magikal libraries in the city. The mages assigned to guard the damned thing can’t find any clues. Tasis is one of those mages. Now, Tasis is calling in the last favor Ava owes him. Ava never breaks her word, so she and the Black Cauldron Detective Agency take the impossible case.
Can they find The Lauret Grimoire before anyone in the supernatural underground gets their hands on it? Or will a supernatural war start in Ava’s backyard?
