Welcome to the Shade – where all the paranormal creatures hang out and the humans flock to. Why, you ask?
Because in the Shade you can have dinner with a werewolf and you aren’t the main course. You can drink with a vampire without losing any blood. Or, how about hanging out and dancing with a dragon. There are so many paranormal species in the Shade to tempt and mesmerize you. Don’t forget about the unique shops that cater to Otherworldly desires and curiosities. Would you like to learn more about the Paranormal community that thrives amidst a human world?
Then Out of the Shade by Diane Barr is for you.
Faeries that carry katanas and guns instead of sprinkling magic dust and granting wishes. Dragons that reanimate the dead. Drug-crazed goblins terrorizing neighborhoods. Illegal demons attempting to conjure the alter ego of an Egyptian goddess.
Sounds like something out of a nightmare, right? Wrong. It’s my everyday life.
Welcome to the Shade, where all the creatures of myth hang out and where I, Detective Gabrielle Tate of the Supernatural Task Force, police them. My partner is AWOL and my sexy dragon boss is leaving nothing to chance as we deal with goblins high on Escape and a serial killer—or worse, a nest of rogue vampires—leaving the drained corpses of faeries and cops all over town.
And then there’s the psychotic demons trying to conjure the goddess Hathor’s alter ego, Sekhmet, to destroy humanity. As a faery and direct descendent of Hathor, I’m eager to manifest her power and use it to combat evil. At the same time, I need to learn how to control the accompanying bloodlust. How? By taking lessons from the charismatic leader of the local vampire clan, of course.
If you thought the mean streets of Detroit were tough, you’ve never seen the Shade.
