Overview

Belimai Sykes is many things: a Prodigal, the descendant of ancient demons, a creature of dark temptations and rare powers. He is also a man with a brutal past and a dangerous addiction.
And Belimai Sykes is the only man Captain William Harper can turn to when faced with a series of grisly murders.
But Mr. Sykes does not work for free and the price of Belimai's company will cost Captain Harper far more than his reputation.
From the ornate mansions of noblemen, where vivisection and sorcery are hidden beneath a veneer of gold, to the steaming slums of Hells Below, Captain Harper must fight for justice and for his life.
His enemies are many and his only ally is a devil he knows too well. Such are the dangers of dealing with the wicked.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This ingenious fantasy romance continues to resonate in my imagination." -- Drewey Wayne Gunn, Lambda Literary Report

Inhabited by angels and demons, humans and monsters, Hale's city of Crowncross will resonate with fans of writers like Gaiman, Mieville and Peake and her writing will leave you anxious for more.

Gaylactic Spectrum Awards Press Kit

"Hale is a natural storyteller, and knows how to plot. It's hard to believe that this is a first effort. I found both sections of the novel unputdownable." --
Craig Gidney, Fantasy Book Spot

Read an Excerpt

The night hung in tatters. Gas streetlamps chewed at the Tdarkness. Candles cast dull halos through the dirty win- dows of the tenements across the street. Heavy purple clouds pumped up from smoke stacks and patterned the sky like ugly patches on a black velvet curtain. A few fi refl ies blinked from what corners of blackness remained.
A pair of them invaded the darkness of my rooms. I watched them flicker, darting through their insectile courtship. They swooped past my face, circled, and then alighted inside the fold of my shirtsleeve.
They crept close to one another, brilliant desire flashing through their tiny bodies. Th eir antennae touched and quivered.
Th e female fi refl y reached out and stroked the male. He rushed into her embrace. Holding him close, she crushed her powerful mandibles through his head. Th eir fl ickering bodies blinked in perfect unison as she devoured him.
Some romances end more badly than others.

    Great book

    This was an enticing read and it was easy to feel like i was the character that was currently narrarating. Other than the pages being misnumbered and skipped by the loads the story carried on like each page was the next in my nook version. I thoroughly enjoyed the strength of the chracters and the underlying backstories that made them who the were. I loved the unpredictable nature of the book as so many are predictable these days. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for an original plot, steampunk romance, rocky relationships and ties, mystery and a healthy dose of sarcasm.
