The Last Netherworld of the Apocalypse
Kelly Driscoll is supposed to be on hiatus from her job as manager of Amenity Tower, but she needs money, and the barn her boyfriend bought has a spectral bee infestation. And while Kelly knows never to take a job offer at face value, she accepts a job to track down an immortal women’s restroom designer named Sun. The target was last spotted in Gridlock City, so Kelly—along with her dad, the single-purpose angels, and Af, the former angel of destruction—drive non-stop to get there.
When Kelly first locates Sun, she decides to not turn him in until she finds out who she’s actually working for, but he goes missing after accepting an award for his design of the women’s restrooms in the Ghostburp Hotel. She and her team meet Bes, an Egyptian goddess working as a travel nanny; Lemur, an angel who puts songs in people’s minds; and Penny, a woman who leaves her body behind and joins them as a floating disembodied head.
They search for Sun through a series of strange netherworlds, looking for clues to his current location. But after a narrow escape from the largest netherworld corporation, a bewildering experience on a college campus, a side job in a labyrinth, and an inescapable dentist office and airport, things look bleak. A maddening netherworld portal system is keeping Kelly separated from her family—and Sun is nowhere to be found.
Kelly learns that Sun is key to a plan that would obliterate all of the netherworlds. And as the condo board of Amenity Tower makes a trip to flush five very special toilets, her boyfriend negotiates a life-changing deal with a powerful entity, and her replacement manager at Amenity Tower teeters on the verge of a breakdown, Kelly has to hustle like never before to find Sun and protect both her world and the netherworlds from destruction.
In the future many problems are the same, but cool gadgets make chasing the bad guys more fun.
Cooper and Geri are finally in a good place, but their bliss is short-lived. When Cooper’s rebellious nephew Jimmy comes down to stay with them in Atlanta for a summer internship. Now he thinks he’s found the girl of his dreams in a fiery, exotic beauty. Pursuing her against all words of warning into a dangerous underground world, he ends up getting kidnapped by her powerful Drug Lord father. Geri tracks him down, but gets herself kidnapped as well.
Now it’s up to Cooper to use all his resources to save them, including the hot homicide detective Geri secretly despises, and the latest sketchy gadgets his genius friend Hasan needs field-tested. Sure, why not? Cooper will try anything to get his family back.
DISPOSAL is the third book in my Pop Travel series - sci-fi noir, a detective thriller set in the near future.
Something big stirs in the murk of the Volga river, emerging at night to sow mayhem and death along the banks. Since she’s already stranded at ground zero, Solstice Winters agrees to help. A small numina problem stands between her and getting back to her family―its only about twenty feet long.
Yay for being the only elf in the world.
After narrowly escaping the Ordo Sanguinem Aeternam, she winds up sharing a flat halfway across the world from home with the enigmatic Cristiano, an agent of the secretive organization she may have obligated herself to join. He seems to know his way around the city, and he’s not bad on the eyes either.
Solstice soon realizes she’s tracking a beast the likes of which none of her father’s books have mentioned, a creature unique to Russia that her magic lacks the strength to kill. To make matters worse, the Federal Security Bureau sticks their noses into the mix.
While hunting the dangerous numina, she awakens a forgotten power in the depths of the river that has the potential to alter the course of human history―and not for the better.
