When the unpopular and reclusive Wizard, Artemis Miller, died by mysteriously falling down a flight of stairs, ZEBADIAH EINAR was dragged out of retirement to investigate his estate and deal with any materials that might be sensitive to the White Council. His actions ultimately led him to oppose the formation of a powerful Shikigami spirit born out of the nuclear fire of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The only way to prevent the vengeful spirit’s ascension to godhood was to channel that energy into another vessel. SALVADOR DELGADO, a fallen angel with no memories of his past, was chosen to be that vessel. He sacrificed his human existence and risked his soul (thereby redeeming himself in the eyes of God just as Uriel intended) by absorbing the energies of that godhood into himself becoming the Archangel of Wrath once again.
THE SIDE JOB
Jack Youngblood’s father demands that Jack track down the old family Winnebago. A vehicle that Jack strangely had no significant memory of. After harassing Jack the disembodied spirit claimed that what was in it was important for his sister, Caroline. Tracking down the old vehicle leads Jack and his friends into the middle of a bizarre family dispute among the dangerous Kulikova Clan of Ghouls.
BLOOD ON THE STREETS
Street violence has increased in recent weeks but what catches the White Council’s attention is the supernatural strength being exhibited by a local gang, the Cross Street Kings. With their new found power they threaten to spark a gang war with The Pack that would jeopardize untold lives. Jack Youngblood, a wizard with a troubled history, is tasked by the Council to get to the bottom of the problem as a test to see if he is worthy to become a Warden of the White Council.
THE CAULDRON OF MURDER
What at first seems to be a simple case of a husband cheating on his wife turns out to be far more serious. Someone has stolen a dangerous tome from the archives of a recently deceased wizard and they threaten the city of Seattle if not the entire world with the secrets held within its dusty pages. Can Seattle’s Warden and his allies find the book before the Storm of the Century followed by the greatest Earthquake in Washington state history send the city over the edge into disaster? More importantly can they defeat the cannibal thralls of an ancient evil bent on the destruction of reality itself?
A mysterious artifact that is coveted by several parties has appeared in Seattle. While Zebidiah Einar is recovering from his wounds out of town Jack Youngblood is tasked by the White Council with brokering a poker game amongst the various supernatural factions to determine who will win the prize. Meanwhile, decapitated bodies are popping up all over the city. Are the two things related? If so can Detective Mullinex find the connection and put a stop to the savage killings before any more innocents are taken?
When the “monster” awakes and demands he be given his right to a speedy trial Zeb Einar and his companions are put in a position where they must meet and “get their stories straight” or face jail time themselves.
