Men in Black meets Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum in the new urban fantasy novel starring seer Makenna Fraser and her fellow agents at Supernatural Protection & Investigation.

The agents of Supernatural Protection & Investigations (SPI) know that fighting evil is a full-time job, especially when a new designer drug—with mind-blowing side effects—hits the streets...
 
It’s called Brimstone. And after the first few hits, you’ll see every supernatural beast sharing the sidewalk, train, or office with you. After that, you’ll start seeing the really scary stuff.
 
I’m Makenna Fraser, seer for the SPI. And the collateral damage caused by Brimstone is something I’d like to unsee: dead drug dealers missing their hearts—and souls. Because your local pusher doesn’t stand a chance against the new cartel muscling its way into New York. And since the drug can only be produced with magic and molten brimstone fresh from Hell, that means a rift to the underworld is open somewhere in the city.
 
And when—not if—the cartel loses control of it, well...
 
It’s going to be Hell on earth.

Prozac & Exotica in a Tattoo Parlor is a modern, urban fairy-tale that takes you on a dream-like, surreal, yet raw and edgy journey through a concrete jungle. Elements of children's stories that entranced us in our childhood magically emerge within a present day urban dwelling. The lives of a dominatrix, a tattoo artist, a singer and a journalist are about to collide.
The story begins at sunset as Mia is grieving the loss of her kindred spirit, who has suddenly passed away. Mia's best friend, Susanna, left her an artistic, scrapbook called the "The Healing Passage." Each page represents a day, and gives Mia a mission helping her to learn to live life without Susanna. On the first day, she is told to go to breakfast at a local cafe. Reluctantly, Mia goes, and ends up running into an old friend, who claims that Susanna sent him a postcard telling him to meet her there for breakfast on that day.
Meanwhile, another damsel in distress is spiraling out of control. Liz is detoxing from her addiction to Prozac, which she accidentally left behind at the Tattoo Parlor she manages. As she sings, imprisoned by her mind is a pre-war tower, a passerby stops to listen to her breathtaking voice. James is instantly mesmerized by the hypnotizing melody and decides he must meet this lady who sings such beautiful sorrow. He finds a way into her building and meets Liz, who orders him to fetch her Prozac that she left at the Tattoo Parlor.
This is only the beginning. Each character receive letters from Susanna after her death. As these artists' lives intertwine, romance blooms and the characters begin to discover that Susanna must be guiding their spirits from beyond the grave for a deeper purpose.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Iron Druid Atticus O’Sullivan, hero of Kevin Hearne’s epic urban fantasy series, has a point to make—and then drive into a vampire’s heart.

When a Druid has lived for two thousand years like Atticus, he’s bound to run afoul of a few vampires. Make that legions of them. Even his former friend and legal counsel turned out to be a bloodsucking backstabber. Now the toothy troublemakers—led by power-mad pain-in-the-neck Theophilus—have become a huge problem requiring a solution. It’s time to make a stand.

As always, Atticus wouldn’t mind a little backup. But his allies have problems of their own. Ornery archdruid Owen Kennedy is having a wee bit of troll trouble: Turns out when you stiff a troll, it’s not water under the bridge. Meanwhile, Granuaile is desperate to free herself of the Norse god Loki’s mark and elude his powers of divination—a quest that will bring her face-to-face with several Slavic nightmares.

As Atticus globetrots to stop his nemesis Theophilus, the journey leads to Rome. What better place to end an immortal than the Eternal City? But poetic justice won’t come without a price: In order to defeat Theophilus, Atticus may have to lose an old friend.
