But it’s a ruse. Instead, he’s ensnared by a witch plotting to sacrifice him to power a magic amulet called ‘Traumesser.’ Little does she know, Gavin is a time-fey, with just enough mana to freeze time for 30 seconds, and abscond with Traumesser.
Traumesser makes time travel possible. So now Gavin plans to save his ex.
The witch wants Traumesser back. And she’ll force Bordertonians to kill themselves one by one until Gavin gives it back.
Manipulating history has unintended consequences. Now Gavin just wants to put things back the way they were. But Traumesser’s been depleted, and replenishing it would make him a monster.
When they narrowly manage to break the curse on the school, Gavin finds himself suspended from the ride-along program and assigned to anger management, where he's forced to mentor a 12-year-old bully who only makes him madder.
What's worse, some demonic creature is systematically murdering Bordertown deputies. And Gavin fears Vikki might be next.
Now Gavin wants to help Vikki catch a killer. He thinks it’s the same unsub his former R.C.M.P. father pursued 10 years ago. He knows his father’s been lying about why the trail went cold, and why the murders abruptly stopped. Now the killer is back, pissed-off, undead, and has his sights set on the Masters family.
Five years later, bionic-limbed bruiser Jake ‘Juggernaut’ Johnson is still stuck on Venus, in a cloud city slum.
He’s a thug for local crime lord Tommy Trejo. And he does very bad things to any who cross his boss. Like break his only friend’s leg. Or locate and recapture the escaped whore his boss brutalizes. And Jake has to obey, or Trejo can disable his limbs with the press of a button.
The whole solar system is run by the Hauer Corporation. The company that altered Jake’s limbs. They have an almost limitless army of nigh-invincible Sentry-3000 patrol drones, each capable of leveling an entire city. And they’re everywhere.
In this crapsack world, men like Trejo thrive. But when Trejo orders Jake to kill his only friend, he decides he’s had enough. He’ll take down the whole goddamn Hauer empire if he has to.
But first, he needs to escape Trejo. Then, the cloud city. To do all that, he’ll need to make alliances with the people he’s hurt.
