Summary

Cody stared at the entire crowd. She turned on a circle in the busy promenade. How did I get here? How long have I been here? 
The alarms are blaring. Over three hours have passed without her awareness. She suffered yet another blackout and more memory loss. The last thing she remembered was packing her bags. Those alarms signaled the time to board the ships at the dock, but only the lucky ones who had a ticket. Once the big storm came, there’d be nowhere to hide. 
A man approaches Cody with a proposal. He needs her because she is the only human being alive who is gifted with her alchemy talents. Who can make a certain compound that he wants. In her line of work, she’s dealt with men like him, and taking their contracts meant a bullet in your head afterward. Besides, anyone who wants her compound is up to no good. 
What she doesn’t expect is to get stuck on the same ship as the man who wanted to hire her. He forces her hand. She tries to sabotage his plans, but someone is sabotaging her plans. Nobody else knows how to make the project . . . so who is reversing her work? 
Time is running out. 
Complications arise. 
“What have I done?”

    When the Night Foxes boldly break into the Fourth Precinct’s Evidence Building, it causes quite the stir. The break-in is daring enough, but their method shreds the magical wards and protections on the building like confetti paper. To say the police are ‘alarmed’ by this is the understatement of the century.
     
    As a Magical Examiner, Henri Davenforth is of course immediately called in. Quite to his astonishment, Captain Gregson has him work the case like a detective. Even more astounding, he assigns Henri a partner.
     
    The Shinigami Detective.
     
    The woman is famous for killing the most destructive rogue witch of the century, and no one is quite certain where she’s from. Every officer in the precinct is either in awe of her or a little frightened by her. Henri is just baffled. What is he supposed to do with a partner?
     
    Hopefully killing one witch makes Jamie Edwards enough of an expert on magic to be helpful, as the thieves aren’t content to just break into one building. They in fact seem to have an agenda, as with each theft, they take magical objects. It’s all mounting to a dangerously powerful magical construct capable of toppling the wards on any building.
     
    And no one has any idea what the thieves’ true target is.

    Henri is quite accustomed to dangerous and unusual cases landing in his lap. Being partnered to the Shinigami Detective likely has something to do with it. What he is NOT accustomed to is the queen herself marching into his lab and handing them such a case.
     
    Former Royal Mage Joseph Burtchell was found dead in his home, all signs pointing to murder. However, it’s in question as to how the murderer accomplished the deed—the house was locked, the wards fully up, and the body bearing a peculiar wound.
     
    It’s a locked room mystery, one with a suspiciously absent murder weapon and lack of suspects. Henri’s left baffled. Jamie’s excited, relishing the challenge the case represents.
     
    Who’s powerful enough to thwart a royal mage’s wards and murder him undetected?

    After two years of training in Turransky under a new master, Rena is a proper Void Mage, supposedly ready to handle whatever the world throws at her. Which is just as well because Toh’sellor’s influence has proven it can pop shards up anywhere at any given time across all three continents, with nothing to use to predict it. Worse still, it doesn’t seem to have any real restrictions. Meaning they’re in the middle of a losing battle, and even if they destroy the shards, they’re losing the overall war.
     
    The Magical Intercontinental Specialist Division approach her, asking for help and offering support in dealing with the shards, but Rena senses it’s not just the shards they want help with.
     
     
     
    She has a terrible premonition about what they really want her to destroy, and she’s not sure if anyone has enough power to accomplish it.
     
     
     
    Rena just wonders how long it will take before someone says it out loud.

    While Bannen had every intention of finding adventure, being yanked through a magical portal two continents away isn’t quite what he imagined happening. For that matter, being magically bound to a mage-in-training hadn’t ever crossed his mind.
     
    Being the first human familiar ever summoned in Corcoran? Not on his to-do list.
     
    Rena certainly needs all of the help that she can get, as her magic is very different, inhibiting her of the normal shields and protections. Everyone says her summoning a human familiar is a mistake, that she needs to break the bond and send Bannen back.
     
    But Bannen doesn’t like this idea, not one iota. Renata Rocci has the magic of a Grim Reaper, the heart of a lion, and a body too frail to keep up with either. She can face assassins; meddlesome mages; politicians; and legendary, nightmarish monsters without flinching. Without losing and that’s sexy as sin.
     
    This is definitely not the adventure he signed up for.
     
    It’s far, far better.
