Raiding a bakery to confiscate a magical spatula may not have been on Zulli’s to-do list for the day, but when she learns a notorious criminal, Ozcar Thorne, is using the powerful magic object to mix illegal drugs, and someone even more monstrous is coming after him to steal it, her job as a soldier in the Chitol military takes an interesting twist.
Alongside her teammates, Zulli sets out on a mission to investigate the Sixth Scents Bakery, but when their plan goes sideways, she discovers Ozcar has his own secret agenda in store for her and her team. Will they be able to retrieve the spatula and put an end to Ozcar’s illegal business, or will they run out of time and fall prey to the man they are trying to take down?
Zulli Taracula is a half-cat, half-spider shifter who doesn’t always follow the rules but never fails to get the job done. Anything her claws can’t handle, her fangs can. That’s why when a new drug hits the streets called Bliss, a deadly magic that’s warping memories and breaking minds, she’s fixated on hunting down the man responsible for unleashing this disaster and ravaging the lives of citizens.
That man would be Davian Grymes – a former colleague of her father’s at NightFly Technologies and a crooked criminal who knows more about what’s going on than he probably should.
When Zulli and her teammates are forced to the sidelines, she sets off on her own mission to reveal the truth behind Davian’s intentions and bring him to justice. But what she discovers is far more troubling than she ever imagined, a secret so devastating that it could rip apart her family and destroy relationships with her friends. Will she be able to put an end to the chaos before more minds are broken and lives are lost? How much is she willing to sacrifice to get there?

Magic is unpredictable, some would say even dangerous. So is Adrian Cotter and his ability to make magic do just about anything – except what it’s supposed to. Running for his life after being framed for murder, a menacing shadow hunts him down and a strange voice begins playing games in his head. As the mysteries and lies continue to surface, Adrian uncovers a disturbing secret from his past that throws his future into uncertainty. Will he ever find out the truth? How far is he willing to go to become the hero he’s always wanted to be?
Things are finally starting to look up for Adrian after capturing Nolan. No longer a wanted fugitive, he’s decided to leave the police force and start working with Daphne at Arcane Enterprises. For the first time in his life, he has people he can truly call friends. People he can trust and would do anything to protect.
There’s still one problem, though: this annoying, manipulative imposter stuck in his head named Rezith whose mind is slowly eating away at Adrian until one day soon there won’t be anything left of him. When Lizzy is captured and drained of her magic, Adrian has to make an important decision to work together with Rezith in order to rescue her. But is Rezith really the heartless traitor everyone says he is? Will he keep his word to help Adrian rescue Lizzy, or does he have a sneaky plan up his sleeve?
