Short Story by Rebecca M. Senese

$2.99 available in bundles


Called to a crime scene, Detective Maeve Hemlock identifies the body as a faerie.

A faerie dead in the normal world.

No identification. No obvious cause of death.

As a faerie herself, Maeve feels obligated to investigate.

But that means crossing back into the Nether Realm. The one thing she hates. All because of a dead faerie.

Visit the strange world of Crossroad City, where magic and the normal world collide. And where detective Maeve Hemlock and the Spells and Misdemeanours Bureau struggle to keep the law and the magic in check to save all.
