The Quarterback Alpha
Mom and I just needed a place to start over. Somewhere to move on from the past that haunts us. Smoky Hills, Tennessee seemed to be exactly what we needed. Here, I could be invisible. That is, until quarterback Liam Bronson decides I’m important. Even though there are plenty of girls who would love his attention, he doesn’t seem to care. The way he stares at me is like I’m the only one that matters, even in a room full of people.
Everson Croft here, professor of mythology and behind-the-scenes wizard. Show me an amateur conjurer, and I’ll stop him before he gets himself killed. That’s the idea, anyway. But New York City isn’t what it used to be, and I don’t mean the recent crash. Amateur casters are calling up creatures they shouldn’t be able to. And there’s been a murder at the city’s most hallowed cathedral, a message in blood on the victim’s back the NYPD wants me to interpret, like yesterday.
