It's a secret international organization operating in cities on every continent. It polices relations between the earthly realm and those beyond this world, enforcing immigration laws, the transfers of magical artifacts, and crimes against humanity.
The agents who work for the NATO Irregular Affairs Division can't tell anyone what they do, or how hard they work to keep us safe. It brings a colorful collection of men together:
Agent Henry Falk, the undead bum. Agent Keith Curry, former carnivore chef turned vegetarian; Agent Rake, Babylonian demon with a penchant for easy living; and Agent Silas August, uncompromising jerk.
Four cities, four mysteries, four times the romance. Is your security clearance high enough to read on?

This is the first anthology I have read, and boy was it a good one! All I can say is that if you are a fan of science fiction, fantasy and paranormal, then you should give Irregulars a shot. I am familiar with two of the authors involved (Josh Lanyon and Ginn Hale) and was thoroughly impressed with Nicole Kimberling and Astrid Amara. In my opinion, each story gets better and better. The world building is rich, with the paranormal and fantasy elements having become part of scientific protocol and regulations of the NIAD. The characters are varied with each story consisting of a pairing of NIAD employee/agent with a non-NIAD or paranormal character. There is some conflict or mystery with each story that comes to a satisfying end. I would recommend reading the story in order (or at least leaving Ginn Hale's story for the end); the reason being that by Things Unseen and Deadly (TUAD), you have the return of an agent as a secondary character, mention of the other agents, and mention of an ancient artifact from another story. In a way, TUAD is a nice way to tie up the stories that precede it.
I love the consistency between each story. Each one had unique voice, unique characters. The intertwining between the individual stories was well weaved. Love to see more in this universe.
