As a young upstart at the Interdistrict Bureau of Intelligence, Adem Adamend has it rough. He does all the work and gets none of the credit, and his “kid genius” status hurts more than it helps.
Then hotshot lawyer Victor Manson is burned to death in his own back yard, and Adem finds himself using his unique skills to piece together the strangest crime he's ever seen. Strange because the only possible suspect Adem can pin the murder on...is a mythical beast.
Before Adem can unravel the mystery of Manson's death, the Bureau loses jurisdiction to the secretive EDPA, an organization that investigates weird and deadly events. But Adem isn't one for giving up, so he takes it upon himself to delve deeper into EDPA's machinations, into the series of unfortunate events that led to Manson's demise.
And what he finds may change the way he views the world—and himself—forever.

Therin Knite was born and raised in backwoods Virginia, USA. Currently in her mid-twenties, Therin holds a degree in English and Finance from the College of William & Mary and recently retired from the hustle and bustle of Washington, DC to return to the homeland and pick up the quiet writing life.
Therin spends most of her time (when she's not writing) dreaming up new story ideas, studying Japanese, and slowly reading through the several-hundred-book backlog in her budding home library.
If she's not occupied with any of those things, then you can probably find her playing with her two cats or lurking in the shadows of various social media websites.

Adem Adamend still has it rough. After being betrayed by a man he idolized, he left the IBI for a job that better fits his skills. And now he has a boss who likes to break his nose twice a week in combat training.
But when a local college senior is brutally murdered by the dream of a sandstorm brought to life—and the monsters hiding within—Adem finds himself swiftly ripped from his training curriculum and tossed into a web of secrets and lies in the heart of the city he calls home.
With threads pointing to the ruthless Columbian mob, a cyber-attack threat against multiple federal agencies, and the shadow of the man who sponsored his corrupt ex-mentor, Adem knows he has little time before the body count rises exponentially.
In order for Adem to solve the case, however, he'll have to contend with old wounds still raw, a new team he's struggling to trust, and his own developing echo powers.
The last of which may pose the most dangerous threat of all.
