Plot Summary

Rookie cop Michael Perelli begins his first day on the job in Metamor City, a glittering and glorious place where the buildings rise as high as mountains and magic and technology intertwine. But not everything is beautiful in the Jewel of the North, and as veteran detective Kathryn Kitaen shows him the ropes, Michael begins to wonder if he's in over his head...


Book Review

The following review was first published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on August 4, 2013

Michael arrives in Metamor City and starts his first day of work as a Homicide detective, and he learns some of the good and some of the bad that will occupy his life.

The story is an excellent introduction to this world, how it came to be, how things work, how they don’t and some of the beings that exist there. Through his tour, Michael is told of some of the more exotic beings that exist in the city, meets a few of them, and in the end gets involved in something that could lead to other stories for him.

There is a brief mention of Incubi and Succubae, as they are called in this series in the plural form. What is more telling is that, at least for the law in this world, is that they are seen as being, if not evil, then undesirable. Also, what is interesting is that people can be “cursed” and become creatures like these.

It would be interesting to see a story about this, but this work isn’t of that. It is an info dump hidden within a day in the life of a newcomer to the city. Personally, I think this is an exceptionally good idea and I will have to remember it for my own use sometime…

Nothing erotic in this work, though Michael does have a moment that was both funny and sexy which I will not spoil here. Again, well written and recommended.

Four out of five pitchforks.
