Blood & Ash
by Deborah Wilde
Missing teens. Long-lost magic. And the sexy nemesis who might drive her to murder.
Detective for hire, Ashira Cohen is having a no-good, very bad day.
When Ash was thirteen, her con artist father disappeared, leaving her with emotional scars and a limp she can’t hide. But she toughened up, determined never to be played again. Is history repeating itself?
First, she’s hit on the head during a stakeout, revealing a mysterious tattoo on the back of her skull.
Even worse? It’s a now-broken ward unleashing dangerous magic that as a Mundane, she shouldn’t possess.
And the icing on this crap cake? Her unruly powers nearly kill her long-time nemesis, Levi, the uptight leader of the magic community. One word from him revealing her forbidden abilities, and everything she’s built will be taken from her… by force.
