Dead of Night (Ghosts & Magic #1): Free Kindle Urban Fantasy

Editor’s Note: DEAD OF NIGHT is a suspenseful, hilarious, hard-boiled urban fantasy with a classic noir protagonist.

Book Description: Geomagnetic reversal causes more than just a shift in the magnetic poles, bringing magic and monsters back into our world. Conor Night is a terminally ill necromancer who takes freelance jobs for the Houses, the armageddon-level wizards who control this new world from behind the scenes, in order to pay for the medicine that keeps him alive. He’s just completed one of these jobs when he lands what he thinks is the opportunity of his lifetime, but soon discovers he’s in for much more than he bargained for.

Author’s Inspiration: I read an article online about geomagnetic reversal, and started wondering, ‘what if.’ I also wanted to take a standard character like a necromancer, and put a bit of a different spin on it – in this case, he only has power over the dead because he’s dying himself. Finally, I grew up reading Shadowrun books, and have great memories of the Shadowrun game for Nintendo. I wanted to capture some of the feel of that world, but a little darker and more raw.
