Overview

Sharp and funny, K.D. Keenan has inherited the mantle of stalwarts Patricia Briggs and Kim Harrison, and The Obsidian Mirror is a masterpiece of thrills for every fantasy reader.

When Sierra Carter, an out-of-work PR executive, receives a call from Quetzalcoatl, the plumed serpent god of the Aztecs, she suddenly has more problems on her plate than unemployment.

Saving the whole planet, for example.

Sierra discovers that her former employer’s semiconductors are in reality a means of spreading a deadly evil around the world. Necocyaotl, Aztec god of death and destruction, has imbued his essence within every device, causing people to place their self-interest and selfish desires above all else. Sierra is called upon to stop him.

With his request, Quetzalcoatl offers strange and gifted assistants, Coyotl the trickster, otherwise known as Chaco, a handsome shape-shifting avatar; and Fred, a diminutive and mischievous mannegishi. Although Sierra is skeptical, the revelation of a previously unknown world and its attendants is undeniable. As is the peril Necocyaotl’s return to power promises.

Entering the fray with avatars and mythological creatures alongside her, Sierra will discover there are incalculable wonders—and dangers—within the new Old World.

About the Author

K.D. Keenan worked in the high technology industries for 30-plus years as a content creator and public relations expert. She founded her own PR agency, named one of Silicon Valley’s Top 25 PR agencies for 10 years running by the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Today, she focuses on her fiction writing, her grandchildren, and a long list of things she’d like to do if there were more hours in the day.

Keenan has always been a voracious reader. Having worked through her grandparents’ extensive library of Victorian children’s literature, she began reading fantasy and science fiction at the age of nine—a move that curbed her tendency to write with a mid-Nineteenth Century flair that was never really appreciated by her English teachers.

The Obsidian Mirror, the first book in a trilogy, tells the tale of a Silicon Valley PR executive whose life takes a turn for the weird when a fast-talking coyote appears on her doorstep and plunges her into a whirlwind of hijacked technology, ancient evil, and environmental threat. Fire in the Ocean picks up Sierra’s story as she embarks on a tropical vacation but instead encounters the ancient magic of the “isle of sorcerers” as she fights to protect the precious natural environment of Hawai‘i.

Keenan and her husband of 45 years have two grown children and two grandchildren.
