Lynn Kilmore writes mostly dark fantasy, suspense, and science fiction tales. Stories published include novels such as Cubicles, Blood, and Magic and Soul Cages, as well as short stories such as Just One Date. She made her debut with a short story in Albuquerque The Magazine.
Magical poisons. Magical spies. A tower of magic that hides in plain sight. All part of a brutal underworld that programmer Dorelai Trelton stumbles onto, and if she fails to quickly figure out how to escape the danger she's in, she'll soon be dead.
Dorelai Trelton desperately wants to escape the relentless bad luck that hounds her. The software company she works for is on a death spiral to layoffs, her boyfriend stalks her, and now someone has secretly dosed her with a magical poison called "nightmare dust." Unfortunately, her poisoning makes it possible for her to see every hidden magical secret within her city. Secrets that others will hurt her for ... even kill her for ... if the nightmare dust fails to kill her first.
