Summary

A prequel novella in the Indigo Skies World... 
--- 
One arm caught around her middle and flung her back to the wall. Her eyes found mine mere seconds before I ground my hungry, angry lips against hers, more beast than being. She squeaked and wriggled, but the softness of her body slowed my heated plunder to something subtler.  
My hand curled around into her hair, tipping her head back ever so slightly so my fierce kiss could better explore the sweet bow of her lips. I pressed into her, hard heat and need seeking solace in her form. 
Her body began to subtly arch back, cursing my mind to blank thought with her gradual reciprocation. Like the sweetest of flowers, her lips bloomed, parting to my desperate taste. 
--- 
His thousand year old heart craves her, but is she the woman, yet, that she is set to become…? 
A prequel set in the Indigo Skies universe, Ruari is a vampire awaiting his fate when the key to his future and the curse of his past, Violet, crosses his path once more. Mortally linked to his sire, Ruari hasn't seen Violet for a thousand years and she has no knowledge of him or the knot in their destinies. 
Fuelled by desire, can he halt her self-destructive ways or will he give in to feelings he's harboured for a cruel and slow millennia?

It’s a(nother) strong novel by one of the best, most interesting horror writers working today.” —Bookgasm

    “A smart, deep, black magic carnie noir existential bloodbath” from the acclaimed author of Boon (Gemma Files, Shirley Jackson Award–winning author).   In the shadow of World War II, the barren, dusty streets of Litchfield, Arkansas, are even quieter than usual, leaving hotel detective George “Jojo” Walker with too much time to struggle with his own personal demons.   But everything changes when a traveling picture show comes to town. The film’s purveyors check into the hotel where Jojo works and set up a special midnight screening at the local theater. The curtain rises on a surreal carnival of dark magic and waking nightmares, starring Jojo and the residents of Litchfield, as madness, murder, and mayhem threaten to engulf them all . . .   “A stunner of a story . . . Flat-out brilliant . . . Unfolds like petals of an exotic and scandalous black flower—each one gently opening to give the reader a distressing revelation . . . Powerful ideas, wrapped in a dark mantle of horror.” —My Haunted Library “If you like pulpy noir with a dose of existentialism mixed with some utterly bizarre horror, this book is for you.” —Fangoria “Genre mash-ups like this one are difficult to execute, but Kurtz navigates it deftly, with writing so visceral and evocative it feels less like reading a book and more like watching a film in real time.” —Literary Hub “While it echoes with the shadowy threatening of Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes and the religious dread of Hjortsberg’s Falling Angel, the clearest voice here is Kurtz’s own cry into the existential abyss.” —Bracken MacLeod, author of Mountain Home

Orphaned, with her brother Sarkus in the foster system who she can't claim custody of, a guardian who is days from kicking her out and, no job. There is nothing left for her on planet Earth. The only thing going for her is that she has made it. After three years of work, she qualified to begin training for the esteemed Special Operations team on the Galactic Garrison's space station.

    Being in the Spec Ops isn't easy. It isn't supposed to be. Any sign of weakness must be squashed, fear is the devil, and hesitation is worse than death. But some of the training doesn't add up. And any semblance of structure? It looks like Ada left that on Earth. 
     
    Ada and her team do their best to put the pieces together and figure out what exactly is going on and roll with the punches mentally and physically to come out on top.
