On the run . . . It’s been four months since the head of the Institute of Supernatural Research was murdered. But that doesn’t mean June Coffin is out of hiding yet. In a world where being different can get you killed, it’s best to keep a low profile. Especially for a Siren who can control other people with the call of her voice. That goes double if your powers might be inexplicably growing…

On the hunt . . . But June isn’t the only one trying to clear her name. There’s Sam, the charismatic paranormal rights leader, and Micha, the first human on record to go paranormal. All of them must bargain with a mysterious vampire named Occam Reed if they want to stay alive.

Out of time . . . As tensions increase between humans and paranormals, June must decide who to trust. If only she could hear the song inside her heart…

Teaser: Excerpt

     “You should dye your hair,” Micha said.
     He and June were lying in Micha’s bed, the late afternoon sun blocked out by thick curtains. The cursed light still crept in around the edges, though, and fell in a sharp line across the sheets. The house was quiet. Micha’s body rested warm and clammy against her bare side.
     “Why?” Instinct in edgy moments drove her to reach for her cigarettes on the bedside stand, but they weren’t there anymore.
     “Because.” His head rested in the crook of her shoulder and chest, his hand on her sternum. “You’d be surprised how much changing your hair makes you look different. Every picture people have seen of you, your hair is black. Maybe you should go blond.”
     June reached up and slid her fingers through her hair.
     “The roots are already like five feet long.” Her natural hair color was light brown, like Jason’s hair. She could have dyed her roots, she supposed. Cindy could have brought her dye and done it for her, but June didn’t have the heart. She almost fancied herself one of those warriors who didn’t cut her hair until the battle was won. She couldn’t look good until they got out of this.
     Micha shrugged. “You’d look good as a blonde, I think. And you wouldn’t have to worry so much about being recognized.”
     June focused on the light fixture above the bed dangling from a dusty chain. The air from a fan in the corner caused it to swing in a slow circle.
     “No one remembers me,” she said. “And I think I have slightly more distinctive features than my hair.” She plucked at one of the gauges in her ears. By now, she should have been at a two gauge or maybe a zero.

The Wicked City [1]

Whatever June Coffin says, goes—literally. And it’s not just because she’s a chain smoking rebel. As a Siren, June has the ability to force people to obey any command she voices. But in a world where those with supernatural powers quickly become lab rats for science, she’d rather look out for herself than fight on the front lines…until her similarly gifted twin brother, Jason, is captured by Chicago’s Institute of Supernatural Research.

To save Jason, June has no choice but to enter a hidden world of conspiracy, murder—and strange bedfellows—including a widowed paranormal advocate whose memory June accidentally erased, and a fiery paranormal separatist leader. Soon the lines between attraction and strategic alliance become blurred. But in a city exploding with paranormal crossfire, and her brother’s life at stake, June will have to face her inner demons and finally take a stand.
