Is there anything better in this world than new book Tuesday? Sometimes I think it's the only thing that makes the week tolerable. In an effort to help make the week pass enjoyably, I am making my own donation to the bookshelves of the world. Yes, the second book in the Asylum Tales series, Dead Man's Deal, is now out!
Do you like magic?
Do you like tattoos?
Do you like elves, vampires, werewolves, trolls, incubi, hobgoblins, warlocks, and talking cats?
Do you like weird and crazy stuff happening at every turn?
The Asylum Tales series could be for you.
With the second book hitting shelves today, it's a good time to start reading about Gage and his friends at Asylum Tattoo Parlor.
Here is a brief description of Dead Man's Deal:
In a gritty urban fantasy world where elves, faeries, trolls,
werewolves, and vampires swim free in a sea of humanity, sometimes you
need an edge.
Looking for a little love?
Need some luck?
Gage can give you what you need. The most talented tattoo
artist in town, he knows the right symbol and the right mix of
ingredients and ink to achieve your heart's desire. One tattoo is all it
takes. But remember, everything has its price.
The wizards know Gage is using forbidden magic, and they intend to
punish him for his transgressions. Too bad if innocent humans and
monsters—entire cities—get in the way. They will quell a nascent magical
uprising and Gage will be the sacrifice they need. First, though, they
have to find him.
Here is the reading order for the Asylum Tales:
The Asylum Interviews: Bronx (prequel novella)
The Asylum Interviews: Trixie (prequel novella)
Dead Man's Deal
"Of Monsters and Men" (short story in Blood by Moonlight anthology)
