BOOKS AND STORIES
MASTERS OF DEATH
A (mostly) comedy (sort of) murder mystery set (for the most part) in modern Chicago. Quite a bit of mythology,
a sprinkle of fairy tales, and more than one
(actually, like, several) snarky immortals.
This book is about a real estate agent—only the real estate agent is a vampire, and the house she has to sell is haunted, and the ghost haunting the house has been murdered, and he has no idea how he died. This book is also about a medium, and though this particular medium is definitely a shameless fraud, he isn’t entirely without his uses—seeing as he’s actually the godson of Death.
When Viola Marek seeks out Fox D’Mora to help her with her ghost-infested mansion, he becomes inextricably involved in a quest that neither he nor Vi expects (or wants). But with the help of an unruly poltergeist, a demonic personal trainer, a sharp-voiced angel, a love-stricken reaper, and a few high-functioning creatures, Vi and Fox soon discover the difference between a mysterious lost love and an annoying dead body isn’t nearly as distinct as they thought.
