Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The hot-as-Hel series with the “Sookie Stackhouse type of vibe” (Paranormal Haven) is back—but this time the paranormal Midwestern town of Pemkowet is feeling a frost in the air and the residents are frozen in fear....

The Pemkowet Visitors Bureau has always promoted paranormal tourism—even if it has downplayed the risks (hobgoblins are unpredictable). It helps that the town is presided over by Daisy Johanssen, who as Hels liaison is authorized by the Norse goddess of the dead to keep Pemkowet under control. Normally, thats easier to do in the winter, when bracing temperatures keep folks indoors.

But a new predator is on the prowl, and this one thrives on nightmares. Daisy is on her trail and working intimately with her partner and sometime lover from the Pemkowet PD, sexy yet unavailable werewolf Cody Fairfax. But even as the creature is racking up innocent victims, a greater danger looms on Pewkowets horizon.

As a result of a recent ghost uprising, an unknown adversary—represented by a hell-spawn lawyer with fiery powers of persuasion—has instigated a lawsuit against the town. If Pemkowet loses, Hels sovereignty will be jeopardized, and the fate of the eldritch community will be at stake. The only one who can prevent it is Daisy—but shes going to have to confront her own worst nightmare to do it.

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Carey returns to the curious Midwest tourist community where normal and paranormal worlds co-exist—however tenuously—under the watchful eye of a female hellspawn…

Fathered by an incubus, raised by a mortal mother, and liaison to the Pemkowet Police Department, Daisy Johanssen pulled the community together after a summer tragedy befell the resort town she calls home. Things are back to normal—as normal as it gets for a town famous for its supernatural tourism, and presided over by the reclusive Norse goddess Hel.

Not only has Daisy now gained respect as Hels enforcer, shes dating Sinclair Palmer, a nice, seemingly normal human guy. Not too shabby for the daughter of a demon. Unfortunately, Sinclair has a secret. And its a big one.

Hes descended from Obeah sorcerers and they want him back. If he doesnt return to Jamaica to take up his rightful role in the family, theyll unleash spirit magic that could have dire consequences for the town. Its Daisys job to stop it, and shes going to need a lot of help. But time is running out, the dead are growing restless, and one mistake could cost Daisy everything…

Synopsis:

The Midwestern resort town of Pemkowet boasts a diverse population: eccentric locals, wealthy summer people, and tourists by the busload—not to mention fairies, sprites, vampires, naiads, ogres, and a whole host of eldritch folk, presided over by Hel, a reclusive Norse goddess.  

 

To Daisy Johanssen, fathered by an incubus and raised by a single mother, its home. And as Hels enforcer and the designated liaison to the Pemkowet Police Department, its up to her to ensure relations between the mundane and eldritch communities run smoothly.

 

But when a young man from a nearby college drowns—and signs point to eldritch involvement—the towns booming paranormal tourism trade is at stake. Teamed up with her childhood crush, Officer Cody Fairfax, a sexy werewolf on the down-low, Daisy must solve the crime—and keep a tight rein on the darker side of her nature. For if shes ever tempted to invoke her demonic birthright, it could accidentally unleash nothing less than Armageddon.
