Book 1: Kindling the Moon
This debut book introduces our main character Arcadia “Cady” Bell. Arcadia is an occult magician who is a fugitive from the law due to the alleged murders that her occultist family is believed to have executed. The Book starts with Arcadia working as a bartender in a demon-friendly Tambuku Tiki Lounge, where she has worked as a bartender for 7 years in order to avoid unwanted attention from the authorities.
Everything was going perfectly as planned, until surveillance footage of Cady’s parents unexpectedly surfaced. This leaves Cady no choice other than to prove the innocence of her parents or surrender herself. Proving her parents innocence is however almost impossible to accomplish, as the sole witness to the crimes is an elusive ethyric demon and Arcadia does not even know where to start her search for this demon. She decides to find help from a demonologist friend talented in casting sexual spells called Lon Butler. Lon Butler and Cady begin their search for evidence that will prove that her family is innocent but in their search they come about more problems that make solving the case even harder. However, missing evidence and interference from a ruthless bounty hunter and a powerful occult society cannot stop Cady, as proving her family’s innocence is the only way she can avoid being forced into sacrificing her own life.
Book 2: Summoning the Night
