A Darker Shade of Sorcery
Evan Umbra is the newest Venator to enter Veneseron, the school for demon hunters, only demons are the ones hunting him. A Venator is a wizard, a spy and a demon hunter rolled into one. They’re taught how to wield their sorcery and enchanted weaponry by orcs, elfpires and aliens alike. Their missions range from battling monsters and saving countless lives in the multiple worlds, to wrangling killer unicorns and calming down drunken yetis. Being a Venator is perilous and every new mission could be their last.
For centuries, poets have argued that unrequited love is love in its strongest form. From Afar is a timeless tale of Morgan Stanfield’s search for love in the far northern city of Saint Petersburg, Russia. Leaving the warm climate of Santa Barbara, he embarks on a four-day odyssey where he encounters a Russian beauty, a prostitute, a wise old babushka, an American chauvinist, intellectuals, the Russian mafia, and the ‘face’ of love, and comes to know how love from a distance can be more captivating than love close on hand.

Yet as they take holiday calls together they begin bonding in ways only a close-knit group who risk their lives together can. Every time they throw on their gear and stride into the swirling smoke their petty differences seem silly by comparison—especially with rumors of a holiday arsonist plaguing Miami.
