As the youngest detective—and only—woman in the homicide unit, Jessica Sharpe quickly discovers that being promoted to lead Detective isn’t all that she thought it would be. When a series of gruesome murders takes place, she is the one responsible for finding the killer, before they strike again.

Crime reporter by day, and Gatekeeper to a world of magic by night, Euros Desard thinks he’s seen it all. That’s all about to change when he discovers that dark magic is behind a series of brutal murders, and that the portal between the two worlds is about to be blown wide open. 

Despite a history of bad blood and broken hearts, the two of them must come together if they stand a chance of protecting their worlds from the darkness that threatens to invade. Time is running out, and if they don’t learn to work together, not even magic will be able to save them.


Detective Jessica Sharpe has recently been promoted to homicide.  This new case is her first as lead. She knows it's going to be a real pain because of who the victim is,  and the state of him. 
Euros Desard is a journalist,  in the human world.  He is also a Mage gatekeeper.  He is supposed to make sure no beings pass through the portals between the realms.  Our heroine will face much more than just an ex boyfriend who she will have to work with. The hero has to try and explain his world to have any chance of saving both worlds. 
This is a marvellous murder/mystery with lots of magic flying about,  and such fast action you might need to buckle in.  It has all the tension of a police procedure book with the added magic.  I hope there will be a series coming from this story .
An exciting, magical story.
