MISFITS OF MAGIC – A NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR LEE HAYTON
NERVES OF STEEL
For a thousand years, vampires ruled the earth. They bent men to their will and molded cities into hotbeds of depravity.
Ha! Just kidding. Vampires are weaklings that catch fire if you push them into the sunlight. As soon as humans found out they existed, they captured the suckers, enslaved them, and put the pallid creatures to work.
So, imagine my surprise when a free vampire strolled into Joe’s Bar. Fair enough if he’s ditched his chains but walking around in public? That does not compute. As an escapee cyborg with a bounty on her head, I don’t want to dig for trouble. Don’t see, don’t tell is the motto for survival on the empire’s rough streets.
If it weren’t for my best friend, I’d turn a blind eye. But I owe that thirteen-year-old vampire my freedom and most probably my life. If something is changing for his species, then he needs to know. And sure, this investigation will open a seething can of bother, but if trouble comes for me, I’m ready. My body is 34% titanium, my skin is silicone polymer, and I’ve got nerves of steel.
BLOOD LIKE ICE
Norman is desperate to cure his main disability—being dead.
At thirteen years old, I became a vampire to save my teenage life. Within a few months, the government put me in shackles, and I spent every night working at the empire’s beck and call. Jumping out of the frying pan into the fire is my forte. And yet…
In the dungeons underneath the empire, I heard tales of a vampire who overturned the curse of my species. At the time, huddled in the dark, it seemed like an idle dream. But when the vampires revolted, I evaded recapture and set out to prove that dreams could become reality. So what if the only thing I’m armed with is my misfit friends and hope?
The soldier bots will hunt us to the ends of the earth to stop me getting within a mile of such a world-altering secret. But the ice-cold blood running through my veins is an advantage that no one in power ever truly thinks about. I’ve already died, you meatheads. Do you think I care if the empire kills me again?
Continue the journey from NERVES OF STEEL with Asha, Norman, and Miss Tiddles in the exciting new series from USA Today bestseller Lee Hayton.
