The Dreg City series:
#1: Three Days to Dead
They’ll never see her coming. . . .Purchase at IndieBound, Amazon, The Book Depository
When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab at the morgue—in a stranger’s body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there—her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and the two other members of her Triad were the city’s star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampires to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced the city’s other Hunters that Evy was a traitor—and she can’t even remember what it was.
Now she’s a fugitive, piecing together her memory, trying to deal some serious justice—and discovering that she has only three days to solve her own murder before the reincarnation spell wears off. Because in three days Evy will die again—but this time there’s no second chance. . . .
#2: As Lie the Dead
Evangeline Stone, a rogue bounty hunter, never asked for a world divided between darkness and light . . .Purchase at IndieBound, Amazon, The Book Depository
. . . or the power to die and live again in someone else’s borrowed body. After a murder plot meant to take her out leaves an entire race of shapeshifters nearly extinct, Evy is gnawed by guilt. So when one of the few survivors of the slaughter enlists her aid, she feels duty-bound to help—even though protecting a frail, pregnant shifter is the last thing Evy needs, especially with the world going to hell around her.
Amid weres, Halfies, gremlins, vamps—and increasingly outgunned humans—a war for supremacy is brewing. With shifters demanding justice, her superiors desperate to control her, and an assassin on her trail, Evy discovers a horrifying conspiracy. And she may be the only person in the world who can stop it—unless, of course, her own side gets her first.
She can heal her own wounds. She can nail a monster to a wall. But there’s one danger Evangeline Stone never saw coming.Purchase at IndieBound, Amazon, The Book Depository
Been there. Done that. Evy Stone is a former Dreg Bounty Hunter who died and came back to life with some extraordinary powers. Now all but five people in the world think she is dead again, this time for good—immolated in a factory fire set specifically for her. Evy and Wyatt, her partner/lover/friend, can no longer trust their former allies, or even the highest echelons of the Triads—the army of fighters holding back from an unsuspecting public a tide of quarreling, otherworldly creatures—they can trust only each other. Because when the Triads raided a macabre, monster-filled lab of science experiments and hauled away the remnants, they failed to capture their creator: a brilliant, vampire-obsessed scientist with a wealth of powerful, anti-Dreg weaponry to trade for what he desires most of all—Evy Stone: alive and well, and the key to his ultimate experiment in mad science.
#4: Wrong Side of Dead (coming in January 2012)
Monster hunter Evangeline Stone woke up on the wrong side of dead this morning—and now there’s hell to pay.Purchase at IndieBound, Amazon, The Book Depository
Barely recovered from her extended torture at the hands of mad scientist Walter Thackery, Evy can use a break. What she gets instead is a war, as the battered Triads that keep Dreg City safe find themselves under attack by half-Blood vampires who have somehow retained their reason, making them twice as lethal. Worse, the Halfies are joined by a breed of were-creature long believed extinct—back and more dangerous than ever. Meanwhile, Evy’s attempts at reconciliation with the man she loves take a hit after Wyatt is viciously assaulted—an attack traced to Thackery, who has not given up his quest to exterminate all vampires . . . even if he has to destroy Dreg City to do it. With Wyatt’s time running out, another threat emerges from the shadows and a staggering betrayal shatters the fragile alliance between the Triads, vampires, and shapeshifters, turning Evy’s world upside down forever.

After years of bouncing aimlessly from one dead-end job to another, Teresa “Trance” West’s superpowers return in a moment of blinding pain and panic. Inexplicably stolen at the climax of the devastating Meta War, the handful of surviving Rangers had been powerless for fifteen years—only Teresa’s powers came back wrong. She used to be an average telepath. Now, her eyes are purple, her hair is streaked violet, and she can create powerful energy orbs by snapping her fingers. Plagued by headaches, cramps, and violent energy bursts, Teresa seems to be allergic to her new powers—and if that’s not bad enough, now there’s a killer after her…
