Don’t miss out on the hit urban fantasy series of 2024!

Nathan Mercer, known to some as Winter’s Wolf, the Fae’s Bane, and scourge of the Winter realm.

Known to others as the friendly Innkeeper who will always help those in need.

Having thwarted a plot that threatened to plunge the fae into war, Nathan finds himself entangled in an even greater mystery. The Scions, descendants of the Greek Gods, have arrived in Portland, demanding justice for the alleged murder of Dionysus’s son. They’re blaming Margie, Nathan’s niece. Trouble is, Margie is missing.

With the Scions hot (and violent) on his tail, Nathan embarks on a perilous quest to unearth the truth and clear Margie’s name. As the clock ticks down, he must navigate the intricate layers of magical families, each harboring secrets and power rivalling the gods themselves.

Are you ready to dive into the shadows and unveil the secrets that lie beneath the surface?
