Dallas Police Detective Sean Fennema has seen some weird things in his career, and some have never left him. Now a series of brutal murders is vexing the department and Fennema is frustrated that his prime suspect, novelist Damon Gables, seems to have an airtight alibi for each of the murders.
As Fennema runs down every lead he soon finds that Damon is in as much danger as the murderer's victims and a terrible truth begins to unfold. Could a case of serial killing actually be a series of targeted attacks spanning more than a century? If Fennema is in over his head, can Damon rise to the challenge? Or, will they both be victims in a case of wrath?
Combining the edginess of a police procedural with the dark twists of urban fantasy, A Case of Wrath is a powerful trek into an underworld we rarely witness.
Rated 17+ for brutal violence, sex and adult situations.
Valence of Infinity is a modern Urban Fantasy series by author C.L. Stegall. The series takes a look inside an ages-old society of people that, for all intents and purposes, is the basis of nearly all of the vampire myths and legends of history.
Calling themselves "Valensi," these people are both the epitome and antithesis of what we humans consider “vampires.” They have their own political framework and laws. They have their own town (although it is basically underground).
Through the tales and novels such as "A Waif's Tale," "One Night in Hollywood," and "A Case of Wrath," we learn more and more about the players large and small in the dark world of the Valensi and the bleeding over of their world into ours.
Future tales will include two more novels, a novella and several short stories, some of which will appear here, on the VoI site, for your reading pleasure.
Be warned, however...some of the tales of the Valensi are not for the kiddies. Each tale will be clearly noted, but remember that these are real vampires. No sparklies here!
From orphan girl on the cold streets of Northern England to one of the most dangerous people on the planet. Paris, a 135-year-old woman in the body of a teenager, is a beautiful and lethal member of the vampire underground's elite High Guard. Yet, one fateful decision turns her from trusted bodyguard to a fugitive with a death sentence on her head.
Paris flees into the human world, on the run from an ancient assassin who is the only man capable of finding her and the only man she has ever loved. With memories of her once-admirable life trailing her every move, she must stay one step ahead of her executioner and somehow find her new place in the world. Can she save herself from her fate? Can she protect herself from her own heart? Or, will she face her lover in a final game of death?
Dark, sensual, violent and thrilling, The Waif's Tale takes you behind the myths and legends and reveals the truth of what it is to be a denizen of the night.
