A Mysterious Death of an ​Illuminator

The party was over.

In a world where art is power, the greatest illuminator of all time, ​Marcellus Overton has met an untimely demise, leaving his assistant, ​Ancilla Walstrand, with all eyes on her.

Enter Prime Inspector Beaumont, a man who no longer allows murder to ​spoil his appetite, but standing between him and his next cup of tea is a ​gallery of unhelpful suspects. His partner, Inspector Lavina Hoadley takes ​murder seriously. With a sharp mind and little tolerance for fools, she ​navigates the sea of ineptitude surrounding her, determined to bring the ​right person to justice.

Meanwhile, Ancilla stumbles from one bad decision to another. Will she risk ​it all for a chance to be free? Or are there some prices too steep to pay?

In this riveting steampunk mystery, the line between art and deception ​blurs, and power becomes a tempting prize. Will they unveil everyone's ​secrets, or will they be consumed by the darkness that surrounds them?

Join in the investigation where fates hang by a thread, and a perpetual cup ​of tea may be the ultimate reward.

Books to Blood

A dead body, a career threatened and a life in danger is not something even ​coffee can solve.

Greer Roberts is living her best life with her cat Miles for company and ​running her bookstore with the help of her seventy-year-old assistant in ​a picturesque small town called Lakes End. Her dream starts unravelling ​when she discovers the body of a local business owner on her way to work ​on a wintery Monday morning.

Inspector Alba Mauzer, Lakes End’s newest resident and in charge of the ​first murder the town has seen in twenty years, struggles to trust her ​inexperienced colleagues and a disinterested partner.

Working together, they try to unravel the tangle of relationships within a ​small town with overly helpful neighbours, donuts and coffee to assist ​them.

Warning: Alba feels the need to use mature language.

Volt’s Command

My name's Morgan Anatasi, and it was not my fault, not completely.

Stuck in supervision by the same Preservation Service that dragged ​me back to city life, it didn’t look like I was getting out of Duskburn ​any time soon. Of course, it didn’t help that I was being blackmailed ​by a teenager to find her missing Scholar, the local gang wants to ​maim me, and I can’t seem to ditch my annoying housemate. Oh, and ​did I mention my death sentences?

Still, I might survive and find a way back to my mountainside and ​best friend, as long as I don’t make it any worse .... again.

Warning: This urban fantasy explores a world where plants, who are ​serious gossips by the way, are sentient, and contains humour, ​friendship, mystery and adventure.
