In the Absence of Famine

(book 2 of the Four Horsemen series)


Genre: Contemporary Fantasy

“Blood. Spattered here and there with a rather large puddle cooling just a few feet from where they were standing. Oh gods, how did they get to her here?

“Jules,” he started to say, voice already rising into a shot but Aedan dropped a hand to his shoulder, silencing him. The god was tensed, a coil of muscle so powerful and deadly even Leo, who’d grown as used to the god of the hunt as anything mortal ever would, felt it; the creeping terror of being so close to something so powerful and predatory.

“It’s not Jules’ blood.” The words seemed wrenched from Aedan at great cost. As if he’d almost lost the ability for words already. The hunt was calling him in a voice so strong Leo could almost hear it; a sound like desperate panted breath, the thunder of chasing footsteps and the long peel of a distant horn. “The Method took Mitei here but Jules was not taken also.”

Leo swallowed around a lump in his throat, trying to find the necessary moisture to enable speech. “Where is she then? Where is Mitei? Where are they?”

“Follow,” Aedan released his hand from Leo’s shoulder slowly, as if the effort cost him and dearly, pointing towards a trail of red drops on gray stone. “Follow the blood, I’ll find Jules.””

The Uncertainty of Death

 

 

The Uncertainty of Death

(book 1 of the Four Horsemen series)

 

Genre: Contemporary Fantasy

“Stripped and redressed, Jules balled the shirt she’d been wearing tightly inside of the much less obviously bloody jeans and shoved the whole ball into her bedroom trash, then trooped back to the kitchen, just as the water started to boil.

She rushed for the stove, moving the water off the heat. Trying not to look at her waiting Death, who, she’d noticed in passing as she entered, had removed her hood.

“I’m not dead am I?”

“No.”

She couldn’t help but smile triumphantly as she gathered sugar, lemon, honey and tea bags onto a tray along with the two steaming mugs of water, anything to keep from turning around and having a companionable cup with the thing that was sitting behind her. It might not be Death, but whatever it was it most certainly wasn’t human.

“Not that I’m not ecstatic with joy about that, but why aren’t I dead?”

Tray laden she turned, eyes on the cups, concentrating perhaps a bit too hard on keeping the water in them from sloshing out. Jules heard it sigh as she placed the tray down and started taking things off of it.

“In truth, Ms. Harper, I do not know.”

Finally, Jules took the last mug off of the tray and set it before her guest. She hadn’t realized she was still grinning like a fool until she felt it leave her face as her eyes watched that pale, pale hand grasp the handle and traveled up the arm slowly to look on their face.

No one ever told her Death would be this beautiful.”
