Book 1: The Flaws of Gravity (2022)
The existence of tequila is at stake. Oh, and humanity too.
Half-Faerie Jude’s been playing both sides of a supernatural cold war. While collecting a paycheck from the Consilium for fighting against the Faerie Court, she’s also helping her friend Aubrie search for illicit magic behind their backs. Aubrie wants more than magic, though, and when Jude finds herself pitted violently against her human colleagues on his behalf, he lets her take the fall.
Now she's got enemies everywhere. Before she can cut and run, preferably to a warm, sandy beach somewhere in the vicinity of “The Hell Away from This Mess,” a shady group of Faeries steps in. They want her to steal the spell Aubrie’s searching for, that would give him the power to merge the human and Faerie worlds and control both. In return for Jude's help, the Fae promise her freedom and safe, anonymous passage to her chosen sandy paradise.
There'd better be one hell of an umbrella drink waiting.
Book 2: A Trick of the Shade (2023)
You can’t put ‘Just saved the world (you’re welcome)’ on a resume. Ask me how I know.
Jude’s drifting in Montreal, low on both funds and purpose. Eking out a normal life is surprisingly difficult for someone whose strongest marketable skill is her ability to manipulate gravity. Who knew landing a steady job would be a bigger challenge than hunting supernatural creatures?
Then her scant few acquaintances begin turning up dead around the city, their hearts missing. All signs point to a vicious shade—a Faerie cursed to live forever in a ghoulish fate worse than death—as the culprit. But Jude’s never even heard of shades before now, so why do these killings seem designed to bait her?
Racing to find the answer and stop the murders brings her to old friends, new enemies and every shifty variation in-between. While risking life and limb battling a sinister Faerie monster may not be ‘normal,’ it’s a routine Jude knows by heart.
And it beats working retail.
